Google OneBox for Enterprise



Google’s upgrading their enterprise search solution to include advanced search capabilities, according to Reuters.

The new feature, known by the mouthful “Google OneBox for Enterprise,” is built into boxes Google sells to businesses. They help create custom search systems for employees inside organizations or for consumers on the company’s own Web site.

Over at the Google Enterprise Blog, they reveal more details. And at the Official Google blog, Dave Girouard explains how the new feature will help corporate employees.

…employees already know how to get movie listings, weather forecasts, and flight information through simple Google queries. So it won’t surprise them (in fact it may delight them) to learn that they can get real-time contact info, sales forecasts, and customer information the very same way. We launched an initial set of OneBox modules with Oracle, Cognos, SAS and Salesforce.com; some of these partners talk about that here.
