We use Nextcloud for company-file-management, personal work-documents and for collaborative work (through collabora), organize our #TODOs, that are not covered by the Bugtracker. Existing solutions either were very expensive ( Google Drive ), missed a lot of features ( Trello ) or were pretty much overloaded with features ( Wekan within Sandstorm ).

That made Nextcloud ud our natural fit for our company management and we're convinced of its integrations and flexibility.

We originally used Dropbox as an easy way to store and share documents, but moved to the much more powerful and convenient Google Drive, although we still use Dropbox occasionally.

                I'm looking for a tool or set of tools to enable searching across all of our platforms including Confluence and Jira, Zoho CRM, Gmail, Gdrive for business, Dropbox and iCloud.

                Any ideas. Something like X1? IBM Watson Discovery?
