    How should an application let its users interact with data? The answer is obvious: It depends. Sometimes all that’s needed is to expose a familiar web or mobile user interface, then let the user click her way to what she needs. More and more often, though, users expect to interact with data through search. People love search; it’s simple and powerful and requires no training to use. And since it’s the default style of interaction with the web, search is increasingly expected in every situation. No matter what kind of user interface an application offers, including a search option is probably a good thing. But providing this option can be challenging for application developers. It’s not reasonable to expect every development team to build its own search engine. Even installing and running a commercial search engine can be a lot of work. What’s needed is a managed search service that can be used by many different applications, whether they’re running in the cloud or on premises. This is exactly what Full Text Search Technology offers.
