However, there is another major area of search and that is searching within a company’s systems and databases for information. This is sometimes referred to as Enterprise Search and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server offers excellent functionality for searching various places within a company for information.
The enterprise search functionality of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server allows a user to search both structured and unstructured data while still maintaining security rights and restrictions. File shares, Web sites, SharePoint sites, Exchange Public Folders, and Lotus Notes databases can all be searched via Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Furthermore, larger organizations can use search technology to find people within an organization and see their job titles, departments and other key information.
Many employees and users spend an inordinate amount of time trying to find the right information and the search functionality of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server can help reduce this time and deliver results quickly and directly to their desktop using familiar tools.
