We’re happy to announce the availability of Working with Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint, by Mikael Svenson, Marcus Johansson and Robert Piddocke
Although SharePoint has always had search capabilities, those capabilities have been hugely improved by the addition of FAST Search for SharePoint (FS4SP). FS4SP provides a feature-rich alternative to the limited out-of-the-box search experience in SharePoint 2010, and can be extended to meet complex information retrieval requirements. If your organization is looking for a fully configurable and scalable search solution, Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint may be right for you.
The book is aimed squarely at SharePoint architects and developers who are either actively implementing search solutions using FS4SP or who simply want to learn more about how FS4SP works.
The book introduces the core concepts of FS4SP as well as some of the key concepts of enterprise search, then delves into deployment, operations, and development, presenting several “how to” examples of common tasks most administrators or developers will need to tackle as examples. In addition, the book includes two scenarios that showcase the capabilities of FS4SP for Intranet and E-commerce deployments. Beyond the explanatory content, most chapters include step by step examples and downloadable sample projects that you can explore for yourself.
