Title: BLENDING ENTERPRISE CONTENT AND WEB RESULTS
Abstract:
Web search results and enterprise search results are combined into a single presentation. A search query is received from a user associated with a tenant of an enterprise cloud computing platform. Web search results are retrieved based on the search query. The Web search results are ranked and sent to the search engine user interface. An intent of the search query is determined. It is determined that the search query is related to the tenant's enterprise data. An instruction containing the search query keywords and intent is sent to the search engine user interface, and is configured to cause the search engine user interface to submit the keywords intent to an enterprise search engine within the enterprise cloud computing platform. A content template is communicated to the search engine user interface. The content template is configured to display enterprise search results received at the search engine user interface.
