Introduction to Sitecore Search

Sitecore Search is an AI-driven, headless content discovery platform that lets you create predictive and personalized search experiences across multiple content sources. The platform provides generic connectors that you configure to extract and index your content.

The Customer Engagement Console (CEC) is the workbench that allows you to interact with the Sitecore Search system to configure your Search domain and manage all aspects of your Search implementation. You use the CEC to manage your content sources, optimize search results, run A/B tests, and view and share rich analytic reports about the performance of your Search solution.

To deliver personalized search and recommendation experiences, Search anonymously tracks visitor interactions on your websites. The Search AI system collects and uses this tracking data to learn about visitor behavior, and deliver personalized, targeted search results.
