Clearing Up or Adding to the SharePoint 2013 Rumor Mill

August 31, 2012

As rumors continue to fly regarding SharePoint 2013 it is hard to say at this point whether they are being dispelled or expounded.  ShareMuch is adding their two cents with a Screencast video specifically targeted at SharePoint search and FAST search.  Watch the full video, “Screencast: Clearing Some Rumors Around Sharepoint 2013 Search and FAST Features.”

The author gives us some points to be on the lookout for as we watch:

Here are some highlights of the video:
1. Search service is still a service application
2. Configuration options in Central Admin UI are pretty much the same as in SharePoint 2010 search
3. Content sources can be defined on the site and tied to a rendering template
4. Query Builder is a neat feature to create query transformations and preview them before publishing
5. Importing and exporting search configurations is great

SharePoint 2013 is exciting.  The enterprise search community can hardly wait to see what’s around the corner.  But for some smaller enterprises, a smart idea might be a third party solution.  Fabasoft Mindbreeze Enterprise can work as a standalone solution or compliment an existing SharePoint infrastructure.  Updates are released quarterly and require no maintenance or hassle on the part of the organization.
