variety of corporate information stored in such business systems as Business Objects, Cognos, Cisco, Employease, Microsoft Exchange, Netsuite, Oracle, Salesforce.com, SAP, SAS, and others. Organizations
can also create OneBox modules to access applications built in-house.
- Site Search Improvements: Site administrators can now link the Google Mini search results page with Google Analytics to provide more detailed information about how people use search on their site in
order to improve the overall site experience. The new Google Mini also automatically generates sitemaps - allowing webmasters to expose more public content for crawling and indexing by Google.com.
The Google Mini is offered in versions that search from 50,000 up to 300,000 documents, includes a year of support and is available for purchase online. Thousands of small-business customers already rely on
