Fishbowl Solutions announces beta release of the PTC Windchill and Oracle WebCenter Content Connectors for the Google Cloud Search

Connectors bring Google Search to Windchill and Oracle WebCenter Content as Google announces Cloud Search support for third-party content

JULY 26, 2018


Fishbowl Solutions, a PTC, Oracle, and Google partner, has announced the beta release of their Google Cloud Search connectors for PTC Windchill and Oracle WebCenter Content. Yesterday at Google’s Next 18 conference in San Francisco, Google announced an update to their Cloud Search product. Prior to this, Cloud Search only indexed Google’s own G Suite data. The new version supports third-party connectors and integrations with non-Google data sources both on-premise and in the cloud. “We are essentially taking all of Google expertise in search and are applying it to your enterprise content,” Google said.

As a Google partner, Fishbowl Solutions has been working with pre-release versions of Cloud Search to develop connectors for Windchill and Oracle WebCenter including working closely with Google Engineering and several Trusted Tester Cloud Search customers. The connectors enable Google Cloud Search to index and serve content stored in Windchill and Oracle WebCenter Content respectively with data-source specific features optimizing the search experience for each system’s unique content and use cases. Both connectors are now available directly from Fishbowl Solutions in public beta. 

“[Cloud Search] is about giving employees access to all the information from across the enterprise, even if it’s traditionally siloed data, whether that’s in a database or a legacy productivity tool and make all of that available in a single index,” Google explained.

The new version of Cloud Search is currently available to a select number of Trusted Tester customers with general availability expected in the coming months. Cloud Search will be offered both as a G Suite Enterprise feature and as a standalone product for non-G-Suite customers.
