Getting Started with Search
SAP NetWeaver search technologies provide a framework for enterprise-wide search solutions for structured data (business objects) and unstructured data (documents). With data volumes rising fast, pinpointing critical information can pose major challenges – particularly if the details you need reside in business applications. Search is a fast and easy way to find information and data within your business environment.
SAP NetWeaver provides search technology on three different architectural levels:
- SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Search
- Search Services in SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP
• Embedded Search for SAP Business Suite Applications
• Search Engine Service
- Search and Classification TREX and BWA (release-dependently exchangeable as the in-memory engine)
