Search engine giant Google, today launched a new tool dubbed as Google Cloud Search that uses machine intelligence to provide a combined search experience across G Suite including Drive, Gmail, Sites, Calendar, Docs, Contacts and much more. This tool was previously named as Springboard.
Basically, this Could Search tool is designed to provide both comprehensive search and proactive recommendations. With the intelligence technology, this tool can prepare a schedule of an upcoming meeting or even suggest files that need your attention in card style design similar to Google Now.
On the other hand, it also keeps a tap on privacy, which is very helpful for business as well. This tool respects G Suite’s file sharing permissions so that people can only search for and find files that they have access to.
Further, this tool helps you to search or people listed in your company’s directory in addition to that of the information. When you see the contact list, the user can tap to start a conversation through the call, hangout, and mail.
The Cloud Search will begin rolling out globally for customers using the G Suite Business and Enterprise editions. Having said that, they are planning to integrate third-party apps that could enhance the tool in future.
Scott Lawrence Lawson, Director of IT Architecture, said:
At QAD, we operate at a high-level of speed and require technology that provides us agility, flexibility and seamless access to information. Cloud Search provides that. It’s given us the ability to break down silos that exist across different content systems and unlock information with very little effort from IT.
