NetSuite, Inc., the provider of on-demand business software suites, and Google Inc., announced that NetSuite has created a Google OneBox for Enterprise module to add flexibility when searching business data across the enterprise. NetSuite and Google enterprise customers can simultaneously search for data within the NetSuite application suites, the Web and other data sources using the Google search interface. The combination of NetSuite and Google OneBox for Enterprise gives users the ability to perform searches across information on the Web, the internal corporate network and their NetSuite data - searching customers, vendors, items, events and transactions - and other linked data sources.

NetSuite and Google have also combined efforts to support NetSuite's role-based architecture. Searches executed by Google Search Appliance users only retrieve data from NetSuite based on the security privileges present in a NetSuite user's role-based profile.

Google OneBox for Enterprise provides secure, real-time access to information in turnkey business applications like NetSuite. By integrating NetSuite's Global Search capability with Google OneBox for Enterprise, queries from the Google Search Appliance interface - built on the same paradigm as - return relevant records from NetSuite transactional business data. In addition, because the combined NetSuite/Google offering supports NetSuite's unique role-based architecture, searches executed by Google Search only return data that is permitted based on the rights and privileges assigned to a user.

Using the NetSuite Global Search module and Google OneBox for Enterprise increases end-user productivity by making data easily accessible, retrievable and relevant. For example:

An accounts receivable manager can expedite payment by performing a single search using Google OneBox for Enterprise that would return all customer, entitlement, service-level and billing details from NetSuite; product documentation from a document repository; and relevant user group postings from an external blog site. A marketing person can efficiently make changes to a product catalog in multiple applications and documents. A Google search for a product SKU would return relevant pricing and inventory results in NetSuite, product marketing documents, and product references on the company from external Web sites.
