How to Build a SharePoint Knowledge Portal that People Love to Use

Recorded - available as on demand webcast

96% of businesses fail to unlock the full potential of their data. Traditional approaches to enterprise search simply can't keep up with the exponential rate of growth in data volume, variety and velocity. Yet the need for accessible enterprise information to improve business agility and decision-making has never been greater.

Enter the Knowledge Portal - A single interface to enterprise information that accesses, aggregates and personalizes data based on user profiles and business processes to better formulate knowledge and insight.

In this webinar, we will explore the essential ingredients of SharePoint-based knowledge portals from an information design, technology and usability standpoint including:

  1. An integrated view of data including operational, historical, structured and unstructured data 
     
  2. A contextual information architecture that organizes data, defines attributes and maps relationships
     
  3. A scalable search platform for tagging, categorizing, finding and presenting information to knowledge workers 
     
  4. A personalized user experience with an intuitive process for finding answers to complex business questions
     
  5. Future-proofing the implementation and simplifying upgrades with a “no customization” approach that makes it easier to support the environment over time

Experts in the field of Knowledge Portal design and deployment will explain how to transform a SharePoint environment into a highly customized search platform  for connecting business users with enterprise information. They will present real-world customer examples that demonstrate how Knowledge Portals can perform complex searches of diverse and dispersed information systems with a streamlined, visually refined, and user personalized process for finding answers and insights.

[RECORDED] Unlock the Value of Data Discovery Using Knowledge Graphs and Hybrid AI

Successful knowledge management, risk management and process automation initiatives use Knowledge Graphs and Text Analytics for data discovery to extract value from documents and transform them into actionable insights and data. Knowledge Graphs aka Semantic Networks are the bedrock of an organization’s Information Architecture - modeling an organization’s products, services and people. Such semantic approaches, leveraging Natural Language techniques, have been the backbone of Text Analytics. Recently, advances in Machine Learning (ML) are augmenting such traditional approaches to create Hybrid AI. Attend the next Earley Information Science webinar to understand the key steps to set up your next data discovery initiative for success using the latest methodology and technologies. We’ve partnered with Expert.AI, a recognized leader in document-oriented text analytics platforms to explain the technical and methodological advances that enable better data discovery.
