Come join us on Wednesday June 8, 2011 at 1290 Avenue of the Americas for the Enterprise Search User Group!
Here is the information from the announcment that gets sent out every month:
Integration of SharePoint Search 2010 and FAST Search for SharePoint 2010 with SharePoint 2007 Portal
With the release of SharePoint 2010 Microsoft released the enterprise search solution, 'FAST Search for SharePoint 2010 (FS4SP).' Quickly the question arose: How do companies who have invested heavily in 2007 implementations take full advantage of FAST Search for SharePoint before they take the opportunity to upgrade to SharePoint 2010?
This session will cover how to integrate SharePoint 2007 and FAST Search for SharePoint 2010 and will help explain the end-user benefits that FS4SP brings to the portal solution.
