The first annual North American SHARE conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, Monday, April 23 to Thursday, April 26, 2012.

We learned of this event on Chron in their article, “Concept Searching Speaking at the SHARE Conference in Atlanta, GA – The Leading SharePoint Conference for Business Users.” SHARE is the only SharePoint conference designed to help business users address issues specifically to get business results. A large number of topics will be covered, including governance, information architecture, search, and realizing the value of SharePoint. We already know that SharePoint can greatly increase the user’s ability to retrieve, organize, and classify information, but a solid foundation with supporting governance strategy is key to increasing and optimizing productivity. For more information about this conference, visit their website.

Access Innovations’ Data Harmony suite of content enrichment and thesaurus management tools can be fully integrated with Microsoft SharePoint 2010. Data Harmony fills semantic gaps in SharePoint to help users take full advantage of their metadata through auto-classification, enterprise taxonomy management, entity extraction, and search enhancements. The end result is information assets that are more searchable and more accessible.
