What is Enterprise Search?
According to Wikipedia.org, “Enterprise search is the practice of making content from multiple enterprise-type sources, such as databases and intranets, searchable to a defined audience. Enterprise search can be contrasted with web search, which applies search technology to documents on the open web, and desktop search, which applies search technology to the content on a single computer. Enterprise search systems index data and documents from a variety of sources such as: file systems, intranets, document management systems, e-mail, and databases”.

Why use Microsoft SharePoint 2013 for Enterprise Search?
With SharePoint 2013, the enterprise search capabilities are dramatically different and very exciting. Search has a new face, a new development model, and some remarkable built-in features. While earlier versions of SharePoint facilitated content search via content web query, it had its limitation when the searches were out of Site collections. Now SharePoint 2013 can be used to index content from a wide variety of sources (websites, file shares, exchange folders, lotus notes, etc.) using third party connectors. SharePoint 2013 builds a single repository of index which allows users to provide a single enterprise search center experience and avoid the need for going to different applications to search for the same type of information. Other benefits include:
- Clean, fast, and easy to use.
- Makes creating search-based applications simpler than ever.
- Straightforward to install, administer, and scale.
- Provides very powerful high-end search features.
