MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands - 13 May 2020 -

Elastic N.V. (NYSE: ESTC) ("Elastic"), the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, today announced the general availability of Elastic Workplace Search, a modern, unified search experience built to enable organizations of all sizes with a clean, simple, and easily deployable enterprise search solution.

Elastic Workplace Search, the newest addition to the Elastic Enterprise Search solution, enables internal teams to search and discover content across all of the information stored in their daily workplace productivity tools. It is connected to the world's most widely-adopted workplace applications through seamless, pre-built integrations, providing teams with an intuitive, consumer-like search experience for finding enterprise content in the virtual workplace.

Productivity tools include: Confluence, Dropbox, GitHub, G Suite by Google Cloud, Jira, Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), OneDrive, Salesforce, ServiceNow, SharePoint Online, Zendesk, and more.

In addition, because many organizations grapple with legacy applications or databases in their application mix, Elastic Workplace Search also includes a robust Custom Source API, to unify all enterprise content platforms into one personalized, internal search experience.

Built with today's virtual workplace in mind, Elastic Workplace Search indexes content from SaaS and cloud-based solutions alongside legacy on-premises deployments, making it easy to customize and highly scalable for any enterprise environment.

Elastic Workplace Search enables personalized search results curation on an individual and per-team basis, which allows organizations to fine-tune results and manage the security and privacy controls that govern content accessibility.

Elastic Workplace Search is included as part of the Elastic Platinum subscription, which provides enterprises with advanced Elastic Stack functionality and around-the-clock support. In addition, a version of Workplace Search will soon be available in the forever-free Elastic Basic subscription, providing a robust feature set for organizations of any size. Currently, teams can try Workplace Search for free by starting a trial directly from the user interface.
