Text Analytics Survey and Summit

Serious IT-market research should look at the demand side, at customer and prospect perspectives. I try to maintain balance myself in studying the text-analytics market, software and services designed to help enterprises find business value in "unstructured" text. You can help.

I try to maintain balance myself in studying the text-analytics market, software and services designed to help enterprises find business value in "unstructured" text. You can help. Please participate in a survey I'm running and consider attending the up-coming Text Analytics Summit.

My text-analytics survey runs through May 10. I'd like to know how your organization is dealing with unstructured sources and the role text mining/analytics plays or might play. I'll write up survey findings in a free report, available in early June. The survey will take you 5-10 minutes. Please help.This year's Text Analytics Summit, the fifth annual summit, is slated for June 1-2 in Boston. I'll be reprising my role as chair. We have some great speakers lined up. They include data-mining pioneer Usama Fayyad, Bing Liu from the Univ of Illinois on sentiment analysis, and Endeca Chief Scientist & search guru Daniel Tunkelang.

I'll again be presenting a pre-summit workshop, Text Analytics for Dummies, and Nick Patience of the 451 Group will also again present a workshop, this year Top Tips on Vendor Choices.

You can get $100 off your registration with this link if you enter my name in the promotional offer box. (Note that I do not have a financial interest in registrations or summit sponsorships.)
