Envisioning the Future of Search (Innovations in Search)

Speaker: Stephen E. Arnold, Arnold Information Technology; author, The Google Legacy: How Google’s Internet Search is Transforming Application Software

Description: Web search continues to consolidate around the Big Three: Google, Microsoft Network, and Yahoo! Increased competition and new services are almost certain to increase as Ask Jeeves, Vivísimo, and others provide more functionality. Pay-for-traffic firms, such as Vibrant Media, Azoogle Ads, and others exploit chinks in the Big Three’s armor. Meanwhile, software giants Oracle and SOA compete for lucrative enterprise search contracts. How is competition possible with Google’s low entry price level for enterprise search? Steve Arnold, a search industry veteran, takes a hard look at trends that will define search into 2006 and continue to challenge investors, corporate buyers, and entrepreneurs.
