CHAPTER 9: Success with Search > The Value of Search

The Value of Search

There is no doubt that for many organizations the findability of content is one of the major issues they face. I have spent time looking into the importance of findability and putability (presented in Chapter 3), and here we will look deeper into how we can accomplish this within SharePoint. With the growth of content over the years, many organizations are beginning to feel the strain of the mountains of information they possess. A good search solution enables end users to find what they’re looking for in addition to finding people and related content.

Because of the value that search can provide for an organization, it is surprising that many don’t invest the time and effort needed to understand their search needs or desired outcomes. In many cases search is simply enabled and tested by having an administrator enter “test” as a keyword in the search box and then hope the correct results will appear, such as the screenshot shown in Figure 9-1.
