How do I figure out where my data is stored?

When pondering the configuration of your enterprise search platform, you need to consider the location(s) of your current data. It might be in your online HR tool, your content management system (CMS), employee records, employee emails, sales tool, contracts, vendor lists, or stored documents in Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.

Be sure to consult each department to determine what data they will need to access, so you can build the system accordingly.
