Microsoft Search announcements recap

Microsoft Ignite 2020 recap articles


From all the announcements regarding Microsoft Search this years here are some that caught my attention.

You'll have to bare with me, being a francophone living and a french environment my English still needs work.

Try to do my best by doing something a bit different, so I hope you will enjoy it!

Let me first tell you why Microsoft search with the Graph connector is soooooo cool! Simple, they let you connect disparate systems, external application, azure content and so much more to give your users a unique one stop shop to find anything in a consistent, convenient and customized way. From ServiceNow to Salesforce, Adobe and so much more those current and coming partnership will ensure a seamless search experience.

Ho and clicking on folders and folders are often a waste of time as we all know! Microsoft invest so much in the search experience that there will be no reason to click on folder anymore!

Here are some the enhancements coming.

  • Search by skills and specific user documents
  • Topics, Acronym, Q&A and Bookmarks will help find content.
  • Personal query history to easily rerun previous search (67133)
