Who “Owns” Knowledge Assets, Content and Search in the Enterprise?

Thursday, October 20, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., Microsoft, 201 Jones Rd., Sixth Floor, Waltham, MA 02451. Directions.

Moderator: Lynda Moulton, Senior Analyst and Consultant at Outsell’s Gilbane Services

TOPIC: KM World and the Enterprise Search Summit are coming up Nov. 1 - 3 in Washington, D. C. and one of the topics on the program is an interactive session to be lead by Moulton, Who Owns (Or Should Own) Search in Your Enterprise? It was launched with a LinkedIn topic on that theme on the Enterprise Search Engine Professionals group. The discussion has been constant for several months and surfaces a lot of issues we need to talk about. Join the group (requires registration) if you want to follow it, and join us for the expansion of the topic on October 20th to include all content related technology projects. We need to know where to position this stuff in our own organizations. The options are endless but not always clear. This will be a highly interactive session - bring your comments and questions.
