Microsoft enterprise search products

To drive the features and technical requirements that match the needs of your organization, identify your key end-user scenarios. Know that relevancy is key, but the user experience is also important, because an unfamiliar, complex, or inconvenient user interface will be a barrier to adoption.

Give users efficient access to unstructured data, structured information, and expertise. A successful enterprise search solution helps to keep sensitive information secure, is easy to set up, administer, and manage, leaves room for scalability, and allows you to customize and extend your search experience.
