Elastic, the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, announced Elastic Enterprise Search, a new product that allows teams and organizations to search all the data scattered across the many productivity tools that power their everyday work life.

Across all industries, team members now enjoy access to an increasing number of purpose-built, cloud-based tools that are more focused and easier to use than ever before. These tools enable new forms of collaboration, faster execution, and an explosion of productivity for teams both large and small. This proliferation of content has created tremendous value, and it has also created a new opportunity: the chance to unify all information in one place and make it easily searchable from a single search box. Elastic Enterprise Search makes that possible, and it is now easier than ever before.

Elastic Enterprise Search is a consumer grade enterprise search solution. It provides easy to use, powerful search across all the tools used throughout your organization. It's a fast, scalable, and relevant search bar for your everyday work life.

Building on Elasticsearch’s proven relevance and scalability, we’ve designed a search experience that simply requires you to search the way you'd speak to a colleague, rapidly getting you to the document or answer you need. No need to configure any elaborate applications, traverse through complicated interfaces, or learn any strange conventions: Elastic Enterprise Search understands your intention and lets you remain focused on the task at hand.

Say farewell to the anxious days where multiple browser windows held hundreds of open tabs. Search all of your documents, pull requests, issues, tickets, contracts, spreadsheets — whatever it is, wherever they are, you have a single, organized gateway to getting things done.

Elastic Enterprise Search comes stock with cloud application connectors that get you started in just a few minutes. For this first beta release, we’ve focused on the cloud applications that are most commonly used in today’s modern organizations:

- Google Drive: Search over all of your docs, sheets, slides, and stored files.

- GitHub: Ingest all of your issues and pull requests.

- Salesforce: Sync accounts, contacts, leads, and opportunities.

- Dropbox: Index all of your images, static files, and documents.

- Custom Connector Framework: Sync data from any source, like an internal application, analytics engine, private communication channel, or knowledge base.

Enterprise Search provides privacy groups and tunable search relevance so that the right things are found by the right people. Assign each team member to a group: Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Design, Product, Leadership — whatever best fits your organization — and calibrate their sources’ relevance, based on their specific needs. Adjust the significance of GitHub for your Engineering team, Salesforce for your sales team, Dropbox for your design team; whatever fits. With granular access controls and group assignments, you can securely guide what will be found by individuals and groups. And what will not be found.
