What is Enterprise Search?

An exploration of how Enterprise Search is unque from other types of search.

Enterprise search isĀ  used to find unstructured data contained in e-mails, text documents, voice feeds, videos and slide shows.

Such software systems help users locate data scattered among a network’s desktop computers, handheld devices and server-powered data centers. And most e-commerce sites provide enterprise search to help buyers find data about products that are sold through that site.

Other forms of enterprise search incorporate more conventional forms of database search of company records, desktop databases and spreadsheets.
