Decisions about Dropbox

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Dropbox in their tech stack.

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?

(And local Disk of course)
