The Search Service Application is the most powerful data source available to SharePoint problem solvers. Not only can you use it to aggregate tasks, events, and documents from around the farm, but also to crawl line-of-business databases. In this session, you'll learn how to use the many features of Search to solve business problems. You'll see how to improve the Search Centers to create powerful solutions to common business scenarios.

You will learn:

  • How to change the look of search results
  • How to present structured line of business data alongside unstructured SharePoint data to create a "Customer 360" in SharePoint
  • How to use Query Rules to help your users find what they seek
