Yesterday, I gave you my overall impression of SharePoint FAST Search. The Video Demonstrations of SharePoint FAST Search Server 2010 below show how well FAST Search is integrated with SharePoint Server 2010.
Advanced Content Processing Demo
FAST uses deep linguistics and text analytics technology to provide meta tagging and turn unstructured information into a structured – searchable format. This automatically creates SharePoint managed metadata directly from the raw data. Essentially, the terms and language unique to your business (your ‘slang’) become a tightly integrated part of the FAST search experience for your hosted SharePoint 2010 users.
