Google announces new Enterprise Search tool

Google has announced a new enterprise search tool called Google Springboard designed to help users to find the needed information with more efficiency. The new app searches for information across all Google Apps including Drive, Gmail, Calendar, Docs, and Contacts.

Google Springboard will be helpful by proactively providing users with actionable information and recommendations, according to a blog post by Prabhakar Raghavan, Vice president of engineering for Google Apps.

“It’s no secret that the growth of information inside the enterprise continues to accelerate. In fact, today the average knowledge worker spends the equivalent of one full day a week searching for and gathering information,” said Raghavan.

“Springboard also assists you throughout your workday by proactively providing useful and actionable information and recommendations.”

Google also announced a redesigned Google Sites version designed to make it easy for users to fast and easily create and internal or external websites.

The new version will allow for content aggregation as well as distribution, optimized for each screen. The new version now features a new theme and layouts designs to adjust to every screen. It will also allow real time collaboration by several editors as in Google docs.
