Organizations are rapidly accumulating more information than they know how to manage. Enterprise search dates back two decades but has a small installed base, and few managers have experienced what it takes to select, install, and implement search applications. This book shows how to identify requirements, evaluate commercial and open-source solutions, and install, tune, and support software. The final chapter will explore how search is becoming the heart of many applications, providing unified access to structured and unstructured information.
