Understanding the Integration of Search & Recommendations: February 10, 2010 @ NYC

This is our 3rd Enterprise Search User Group meeting in New York join us to see Tal Peleg to speak on the topic “Understanding the Integration of Search & Recommendations”


While Recommendations provides an entirely new economic model both for the media and entertainment industries (one that is just beginning to show its power). Unlimited selection is revealing truths about what consumers want and how they want to get it in...

This technology is now harnessed for the productivity market as well.  Allowing for enhanced social computing around community of interest and allowing LOB owners to better communicate with their fellow workers.

Demo Included.

This support includes the pre-sales briefings, evaluation support, requirements analysis, architectural design, and working with implementation services teams.  Prior to FAST, Tal has been in the telecom world, driving next generation services across the western hemisphere.
