What is Enterprise Search?
Enterprise search is the practice of making content from multiple enterprise-type sources searchable to a defined audience. Enterprise search systems index data and documents from a variety of sources such as file systems, intranets, document management systems, e-mail and databases.
SharePoint 2010 Search helps people find the information they need. It provides intranet search, people search, and a platform to build search-driven applications – all on a single, cost-effective infrastructure. The unique SharePoint 2010 search feature is a new approach to search providing an experience that is highly personalised, efficient and effective and combines relevance, refinement, and people.
