Gilbane San Francisco – http://gilbanesf.com/, April 10-12, 2007, Palace Hotel.
Call for Papers Deadline: January 3rd, 2007
The Gilbane Group announced today that they have launched a new research and consulting practice covering Enterprise Search technologies and applications. The new practice is lead by industry veteran and research expert Lynda Moulton. The new practice complements existing Gilbane Group consulting services that cover a broad range of content technologies, as well as the Gilbane Group’s Publishing Technology and Strategy consulting practice. While the Gilbane Group has covered enterprise search technologies since 1993, today’s demand from a broad range of organizations for solid information and guidance needs to be met with a highly focused dedicated effort. The Enterprise Search practice is supported by a new blog devoted to the topic as well as the Enterprise Search track at Gilbane conferences. The Enterprise Search blog went live on January 1 with an introductory entry by Lead Analyst Lynda Moulton. Visit the new blog at: https://gilbane.com/search_blog/.

Exalead announced an OEM agreement with Messaging Architects, a specialist in Risk Management software and services for enterprise e-mail systems. Under the terms of the agreement, Messaging Architects will integrate the unified, secure exalead one:search platform into its enterprise-class GWArchive 3.5 solution, which is designed to help organizations address the challenges of e-mail retention, regulatory compliance, storage and retrieval. By embedding exalead one:search technology into GWArchive, customers will be able to retrieve archived e-mails through a unified user interface. GWArchive, which is designed for Novell Groupwise Collaboration software users, offers enterprise-class storage management, policy-based retention, full information lifecycle management for e-mail and long-term data portability. The exalead one:search platform complies with an organization’s existing security policy to prevent e-mail messages from being viewed or retrieved by employees without permission. Further, exalead one:search offers several advanced search capabilities that allows users to find relevant information quickly, even if they do not know its exact location or the content within the e-mail. Users can narrow or broaden the search for a particular e-mail message based on keywords, date range, author and recipient, whether it had an attachment, or based on the text within an attachment, among other parameters. Exalead also offers a fuzzy matching capability that allows users to search phonetically. http://www.messagingarchitects.com/, http://exalead.com/
We launched a new consulting practice and blog yesterday to focus on Enterprise Search. I am thrilled to have Lynda Moulton join us to be the Lead Analyst of the practice. Lynda has a long and deep experience as an expert on research technologies as a software developer, entrepreneur, and consultant. We’ve been getting more calls for help about enterprise search over the past year, as well as increased interest in our Enterprise Search track at our conferences – the topic cried out for a dedicated focus. Visit our new Enterprise Search blog at https://gilbane.com/author/lynda-moulton/, and let Lynda know what questions you have about search technology and its enterprise application.
