Get the Extra Functionality of FAST Search Without the Extra Cost in SharePoint 2013

Email | Print

The single biggest question people have been asking me about SharePoint 2010 is “should I use SharePoint Search or FAST Search?”.  Many people wondered why they should have to pay more for top-quality search tools.

Well, all of the questions and comparisons can be put to rest because FAST  Search, as an independent solution, is no more.  Microsoft has taken about 80% of the FAST Search functionality which was most commonly used in SharePoint 2010 and have embedded it into the new SharePoint 2013 Search platform.

The more advanced search options leveraging the most functionality from FAST Search is available through the SharePoint 2013 Enterprise CAL.  The Standard CAL has a subset of the FAST Search tools integrated into the new search functionality.

If you are currently using SharePoint 2010 Search, you’ll notice some new query and navigation capabilities out-of-the-box when you upgrade to SharePoint 2013.
