Talk about the idea pipeline, and reference implementations.
Talk about various connectors that we have created.
Distributed, fault tolerant, highly available.
The Easy Connectors – CSV, XML, JSON, text, rss, etc.
The Hard Connectors – enterprise systems such as documentum, salesforce, and sharepoint.
Incremental – Always attempt to detect when items change and only send the changes. Avoid leaving orphaned search results!
Security and Permissions – While indexing, the need to obey the underlying security model is paramount for the enterprise.
