Talk about Professional Microsoft Search: FAST Search, SharePoint Search, and Search Server

An excellent book on the subject of Enterprise Search. This book is not just about FAST ESP, it gives an overview of the Enterprise Search domain, the players involved, technology stack that goes behind supporting search platform in an enterprise, subject matter expertise, costs & benefits and whats in the future for Search.

I had the privilege of working with authors Miles and Mark in one of my search projects a while ago and their in-depth knowledge and comprehensive view of Search & Information Retrieval in general is well respected in the field and this book reflects their passion and penchant for search technologies.

This book is a must for anyone looking to get to speed with FAST ESP. Also recommended for IT Managers evaluating various search platforms for their enterprises.

Besides the book, also checkout the blogs and search communities listed at end which provide valuable info and create a forum for sharing ideas and knowledge.
Finally, a book that covers FAST ESP, SP 2010 Search, and FAST for SharePoint 2010. All in one place.
It's gives enough detail to arm yourself for conversations with management and the technical team.

I purchased 4 copies of the book for my search delivery team and one digital download version for my iPad.

Wish I had this book 6 months ago.
If you're not going use the FAST Search, this book is useless. I bought it because I wanted to find more info about SharePoint Enterprise Search, which is an integral part of SharePoint. Only one out of 14 chapters was devoted to it, and not into depth. After all, I had to Google everything about I needed for the project (so much for buying the book).

I think it gives a decent overview of the Search technologies. However, if you are looking for a book to help you configure search, then this book it NOT for you. There is very little in the way of customization, best practices, or configuration. Because the book is titled "Professional..." I expected details.
When I do a Google search, all too frequently I get 54,286 "hits" and can only hope that what I need is in the first page or two. I have wasted literally hours trying to find that "right" hit. That's OK since I have more time than money. A successful business, however, will have more money than time and cannot afford spending an hour, or even a few minutes, trying to winnow out the "right" hit from all the chaff. Enter Fast Search, Sharepoint, and Search Server, come to save the day, able to intelligently pop up the correct result quickly and effeciently without the chaff. This book explains the value and approaches of these modern tools, introducing some of the strategies for their implementation in the 21st century business milieu. Well worth the few dollars.
More than a decade ago, Microsoft announced Normandy as a suite of Internet products. Buried in the list was Microsoft Search Server. A few years later, Microsoft gave us Full Text Services for SQL Server. A couple of years after that, a confusing product list included Microsoft Desktop Search, SharePoiont Search, SQL Search and a handful of other products tied to Live. Then, Microsoft acquired FAST and added another search product in the quiver.

This book covers a very broad range of topics. If you are trying to make sense of how Microsoft is selling all of these search products, I would recommend reading Chapter 3 - "Overview of Microsoft Enterprise Search," Chapter 5 - "FAST Search Within SharePoiont 2010," and Chapter 7 - "Introduction to FAST ESP." These three chapters are a fantastic field guide and map to Microsoft's fleet of search products. Armed by these chapters, you are well suited to evaluate Microsoft's offering, help a company via consultation, or even prepare an offensive and defensive strategy to sell against the Microsoft product line as a marketer or sales engineer.

If you are selecting a Microsoft strategy, Chapter 6 - "Customizing Search with SharePoiont 2010," will provide good coverage of what is possible and even spark some ideas of using these Microsoft products for different projects. Chapter 10 - "Enterprise Search is Social Search," Chapter 11 - "Search and Business Intelligence," and Chapter 12 - "The Future of Search," provide some interesting perspectives on the edge cases where search can be called to duty including some coverage of emerging products from Microsoft including "SearchTogether" and " LookingGlass."

This book will provide some tips as a day to day operations guide, but the book's strength is in navigating so many powerful products from an enormous software portfolio.
For SharePointers in Enterprise or FAST search then this book is fantastic. It provide insight not only into governance and business understanding but the technology pinnings as well. Great book and great authors with significant knowledge and credibility in this area.
