Making information usable

There are things in our digital lives we can all agree on. One is the importance of usability, another the importance of information. Hence, making information usable must also be important?

Usability is about combining business and user goals via design. For search applications it involves graphics, interaction, findability and quality of content.

To succeed you need to know your business, your users and your content – what are the company strategies and visions, user needs and motivations, the what and where of content?

At Findability Day 2016, the biggest event on Search and Findability in Northern Europe, we focus on how to make information usable from a design, technology and information management perspective. Join us and other experts at Findability Day 2016 in Stockholm, to discuss and learn about trends, success stories and best practices. More information about Findability Day will be posted shortly!

Misty Weaver

Findable, Usable, and Meaningful: Structuring Content for User Experience

Intent drives user experience from design to delivery. Designers and marketers establish what customers need and how they behave. We then build experiences and content that map to these behaviors. Our goal is to provide answers to people's questions. To help them complete tasks and take action. To achieve this, we create and structure content so that is findable. From SEO to structured content in a CMS, how to ensure the answers we provide are easily found and usable?

Beyond Search: An Application-centric Approach to Enterprise Social Collaboration

Search is not just a stand-alone application. Every tool you use in your digital workplace - be it your email, social collaboration, web content management, Sharepoint, or digital asset management system - has search as part of the core application. How can these applications contribute to the imperative to improve enterprise collaboration? Can an application-centric view of search get you to the next level of findability? This session will answer these questions.

Kai Wähner

Apply Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning in Real Time to Disrupt Business Models

The digital transformation is going forward due to Mobile, Cloud and Internet of Things. Disrupting business models use Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning. Large amounts of historical data are stored to find patterns, for example for predictive maintenance, fraud detection or cross-selling. These patterns can then be integrated into new transactions in real time to increase revenue or reduce risks. This session focuses on success stories from different industries and describes the complete analytics process from initial data discovery across building the analytic model right up to production deployment. A live demo from a real world project concludes the session.
