This coming October, London will host the first ever Enterprise Search Europe conference. This conference is a brother event of the well-established US based Enterprise Search Summit. Norconex is proud to present a variation of its successful talk regarding the importance of gathering good search analytics data, and how to best act on such data.
Using the great feedback David Gaulin received from his last presentation, he will present an updated talk explaining how following and understanding your users search behaviours can be used to successfully measure and improve your enterprise search investment.
David’s talk “How to Make your Silent Search Users Talk: Actions Speak Louder than Words” is scheduled for Tuesday October the 25th, just before lunch. The Enterprise Search Europe program is now available.
If you’re interested in the enterprise search space, and you’re in Europe, or traveling to Europe, make sure you don’t miss this event. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!

We had great conversations with people from Germany, Holland, Australia, France, South Africa, and the UK – always great to see new faces! Naturally, Norconex stepped in to represent Canada.
