      Customization without programming
      Drawbacks
      Relies on SharePoint’s native search index so you must be able to access the content through SharePoint (not a problem if you are comfortable with the BCS)

      To improve the user experience in search and document libraries using your exiting infrastructure
      to customize SharePoint search quickly without XML and XSL code
      To create customized search experiences for audiences or sites
      Add full document preview for over 500 file types to any SharePoint platform including FAST
      Not a good solution for business that needs:
      Search more than 100 million items (unless you are adding Ontolica Preview on FAST)
      To access content sources that are inaccessible through SharePoint’s BCS (I can’t think of any)
    • Search Center

    • Look at this if your business wants:
      Crawl massive amounts of content
      Design highly customized search-based applications

      Metadata extraction during indexing
      Not a good solution for business that needs:
      To stay within a limited budget
      To preview documents other than .DOCX and .PPTX (no PDF preview)
      To only use existing infrastructure
      Resolved with Ontolica Preview for FAST
