Kehoe to Deliver Workshop at KMWorld, Speak at Enterprise Search & Discovery

Plano, Texas — October 16, 2015 — Miles Kehoe, Enterprise Search Practice Director at Avalon Consulting, LLC, will be delivering a workshop at KMWorld and presenting at Enterprise Search & Discovery.  The co-located conferences will be held November 2-5, 2015 at the JW Marriott in Washington, DC.

The workshop at KMWorld, scheduled for 1:30 – 4:30 PM on Monday, November 2, is titled “Visualization and Analytics”. The Workshop description is as follows:

 Elasticsearch and LucidWorks, two leaders in open source-based search, have created buzz with tools such as Kibana, Banana, and Silk to deliver search result visualization. These tools produce stunning interactive options to view search results and enable conventional search in ways that deliver meaning and encourage interactive discovery. See how others are using these tools. Bring your own laptop to install and use these tools and learn to build custom visualization plug-ins.

Kehoe’s speaking session, scheduled for Thursday, November 5th from 3:15 – 4:00 PM, is titled “Future of Search”. The session abstract for this talk is as follows:

We’ve heard about the deficiencies of search results as lists of blue links; about graph, semantic, and cloud technologies; about video and visualizations; but what about the future of search? Where do Kibana and Silk fit in? What of apps that support saved queries? And then there’s Big Data—how will that impact enterprise search and discovery? Miles Kehoe addresses all the ways that search can be used to power valuable and powerful applications, including alerting, analytics, and mapping.
