Book Description

Enterprise search engines locate information from internal servers and external information services and provide solutions for all organisations (including not-for-profit).

This unique book is designed to help organizations to understand, specify and implement desktop, website, intranet and enterprise search applications, focusing on the practical aspects, rather than the theory of information retrieval. It will enable you to understand the benefits and issues with each solution whether from the traditional high-end range or the newer plug-and-play solutions.

The book covers:

the technology of searching

defining search requirements

usability of the search interface

developing the business case

selecting a search engine

implementing a search engine.
