How Microsoft and FAST are defining Next Generation Search

Microsoft made a big bet on enterprise search with its acquisition of FAST in 2008. The powerful FAST Enterprise Search Platform (ESP) is now the centerpiece of Microsoft’s enterprise search strategy and will be the foundation for search in future versions of Microsoft SharePoint, as well as stand-alone enterprise search offerings. In this session, you'll get a front seat view at how this game-changing search technology offers new opportunities to provide better search solutions to both your colleagues and your customers, emphasizing why you should care in the first place (hint – money and productivity). We'll also reveal Microsoft's product plans for search within the SharePoint 2010 platform and beyond, and discuss practical steps you can take in order to take advantage of Microsoft’s new strategy immediately today, whether you’re running MOSS, planning to upgrade to SP2010 or use FAST ESP stand alone. We’ll be sure to leave plenty of time to have an open discussion with user group participants to talk about your specific situation.


Speaker: Nathan Treloar, Principal Search Technology Evangelist in the Microsoft Enterprise Search Group
