  • ABOUT AGNES MOLNAR• SharePoint Server MVP• Senior Solutions Consultant, BA Insight• Blogger, frequent speaker, writer• Web: http://www.bainsight.com• Blog: http://aghy.hu• Email: aghy@aghy.hu• Twitter: @molnaragnes
  • AGENDA• What is the „Information Architecture”?• What is the „Search”?• SP2010 Document Management Capabilities• SP2010 Search Capabilities• Better Together – Best Practices
  • WHY? WHY? WHY?• Information overload Data is doubling every 18 months (Gartner)• Time spent by searching for something: 8 hours / week / information worker (Gartner)• Searching without finding: 3.5 hours / week / information worker (Gartner) COMPLETELY WASTED!
  • WHAT IS„INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE”?The art and science of organizing and labeling web sites, intranets, online communities, and software to support findability and usability. Wikipedia, IAI
  • ORGANIZING THE CONTENT IN SP2010• Document Libraries & Folders• Content Types• Document Sets• Managed Metadata• Document ID• Workflows• Content Organizer Rules• Office 2010 Integration• Office Web Apps• SharePoint Workspace 2010
  • FOLDERS VS. DOCUMENT SETS• Document Sets: Components, similar to folders, that enable users to collaborate on related documents without having to create a new document library or site.
  • FOLDERS VS. DOCUMENT SETS Document_1 Document_F1_1 Document_2 Document_F1_2 Folder_1Document Library Folder_F1_1 Folder_F1_1_1 ... Folder_2 DocumentSet_F1_1 Document_DS_F1_1_1 Folder_3 Document_DS1_1 DocumentSet_1 Document_DS1_2
  • CONTENT TYPES• Content Type: • Properties & Metadata • Workflows • Document Template• One Content Type – Multiple Document Libraries• One Document Library – Multiple Content Types
  • MANAGED METADATA• Managed Metadata: A hierarchical collection of centrally managed terms that you can define and then use as attributes for items.• Benefits: • Consistent and global use of terminology • Managed out of context • Managed by owners • Better search results • Dynamic
  • CONTENT ORGANIZER RULES• Property based rules• Users don’t need to know where to save• Well organized content• Discover, search and find
  • WHAT IS „SEARCH”?• „I know what I’m searching for and know how to do that”• „I know what I’m searching for but I don’t know how to do that”• „I don’t know what I’m searching for”• „Am I Searching?...”
  • ENTERPRISE SEARCH• Enterprise – is no longer within the firewall• Relevance is critical• Search within the organization• „Transparent” Search• Search Driven Applications
  • SEARCH COMPONENTS Source: http://searchpatterns.org
  • SEARCH COMPONENTSSearch Center - UI for users to issue queries and interact with resultsQuery Servers - Accept query requests from users and return results Query Object Model Federated SourceQuery Federation - Return results from non-SharePoint Indexes Query Servers IndexIndexing - Extract information from items to enable efficient matching PartitionIndex Partition - Subset of the overall index IndexerCrawling - Traverse URL space to record items in searchcatalog CrawlerConnectors - Know how to processdifferent content sourcesContent Sources - Host the content Content Content Content
  • SHAREPOINT 2010 SEARCH• Enterprise scale-out (100M docs)• Powershell support• Boolean query syntax• Prefix matching• New, rich User Interface• Faceted Navigation (Refinement Panel)• Suggestion while typing• Improved People Search with phonetic matching• Social Tagging and Search• Enhanced Relevance
  • SHAREPOINT P2010 SEARCH• Content Sources • SharePoint content • File Shares • Web sites • Exchange Public Folders • Business Data • Custom Connections
  • FAST SEARCH FOR SHAREPOINT2010• Unlimited scale• Enhanced User Interface • Deep refinement with counts • Thumbnails + Document Previews • Visual Best Bets• User Context• Sorting on any Property• Similar Search• Content Processing Pipeline with Entity Extraction• „Easy” install and configuration
  • FAST SEARCH FOR SHAREPOINT 2010 Sorting on any Query property Related completion searches & people Deep Refiners ScrollingDocument previewsthumbnails Read in Office Web Apps Federated results
  • SEARCH FEDERATION• Using remote index for SharePoint queries• Location type: • SharePoint Search index • FAST index • OpenSearch 1.0/1.1
  • SEARCH FEDERATION• Benefits: • No resources needed for indexing • Custom Credentials • Usage restrictions • Prefix / Pattern match • Query Template • {searchTerms} scope:Documents • {searchTerms} type:.doc type:.docx type:.docm• BUT: • Live Internet connection is required • Bandwith • No control over results (order, relevance, etc.) • Separated Web Parts
  • CRAWLED/MANAGED PROPERTIES• Crawled property: metadata extracted from the documents/items during the crawl.• Managed property: can appear in refined searches and helps users perform more successful queries
  • CRAWLED/MANAGED PROPERTIES• Property mapping • Map to the same managed property if reasonable (Title, Subject, Location, etc.) • Don’t create managed property if you don’t really need (index size!) • Full Crawl!
  • BETTER TOGETHER• Improve the content • Organize • Consistent Properties & Metadata • Content Types • Discover, Search, Find • Navigation• Improve the search • Content Sources - „Transparent” Search • Scopes – Filtering • Customized UI • Iterations!
