Global Search Configuration


Sinequa, a provider of natural language and machine learning-powered enterprise search and analytics, has announced a partnership with content platform firm Box to leverage the corpus of content within organizations for finding information and applying knowledge for business advantage.


  • Sinequa’s search, augmented by natural language processing and machine learning, aims to unearth deeper meanings and associations between content in Box and other enterprise content repositories.
  • Both Sinequa and Box offer enterprise-grade governance features for control of content, allowing searches to be conducted with appropriate role and access restrictions to results.
  • Sinequa’s powerful search and rich family of connectors to content repositories can potentially deliver on the long-elusive promises of knowledge management systems, which have never successfully balanced usability and accessibility against critical masses of useful data.

Features and Benefits

  • Evaluates the nature of the Sinequa-Box partnership and the potential benefits available to enterprise search customers.
  • Assesses the unique data governance capabilities that are derived from the partnership/integration between Sinequa and Box.
  • Identifies potential search-related methods for amplifying the business value of content across enterprise repositories.
  • Assesses the access control and permissions challenges facing enterprise search platforms, which must aggregate data from various disparate repositories.

Key questions answered

  • Why is the partnership between Sinequa and Box notable from an information management perspective?
  • How do the respective governance capabilities of Sinequa and Box contribute to a seamless, managed search environment?
  • How does Sinequa's partnership with Box potentially compound the value of data residing in other, unrelated content repositories?
  • Why have past "knowledge management" systems failed to perform, and how could advanced enterprise search potentially deliver on these promises?
