The whole desktop search thing

These past few months, there has been a lot of (e-)media attention on this thing called desktop search ( the likes of Copernic, Google, Yahoo, MSN ), and now, now we also have “Google DesktopSearch Enterprise edition”

Anyway, I can’t help but think that a good Sharepoint implementation would make all these products obsolete. You can use Sharepoint to:

– Store personal and corporate information (dare I say knowledge?),

– Search this and other external information,

– Use these features from a WebBrowser, Windows Explorer or your favorite Office application.

Anyway, at least all of this attention does focus us on the fact that there is a HUGE market for these kind of solutions!

Update: By no means did I mention ALL the features a good SharePoint implementation has!
