Sinequa is Proud to Announce the Opening of its New Office in the Big Apple

Sinequa US Expansion

Earlier this year, Sinequa expanded to a bigger space for its North American headquarters in New York City. The move, which happened in late January, extends Sinequa’s office space from 3,665 square feet to over 8000 square feet, steps away from the legendary Madison Square Garden and major transportation hub, Penn Station.  “Additional space was necessary to meet the needs of a rapidly growing team and extended pipeline of clients,” commented Xavier Pornain, Sinequa’s VP of Sales, NA who is charged with leading the office and Sinequa’s North America growth strategy.  The new location will be the company’s third move since expanding its reach to the North American market in late 2014.

To celebrate the grand opening Sinequa’s, CEO Alexandre Bilger, and COO Fabrice de Salaberry, flew in from Paris to christen the office with champagne, confetti and a few rounds of bonzini foosball.

Sinequa is dedicated to strengthening its competencies and expertise across North America to address the diverse needs of Enterprise Search among its existing fortune 500 clients and beyond.  For more than 18 years, Sinequa has been a leader in developing a next-generation Enterprise Search platform that turns data (both structured and unstructured) into information and insights necessary for organizations to become “Information-Driven.”

“I’m very excited to see our office flourish and grow. The new office comes with lots of conference rooms to meet with customers and partners with plenty of natural light that makes it a great working environment. In addition, it shows our commitment to the U.S. market while accelerating our growth and expansion,” stated Laurent Fanichet, VP of Marketing.

The second part of the event was dedicated to our customers who shared with the audience their testimonials and facts about their journey to become Information-Driven.  In that way, Mark Woolley – Search & Taxonomy Capability Lead at AstraZeneca, a global science-led biopharmaceutical company with innovative medicines used by millions of patients worldwide, explained to which extent AI-Powered Search contributed to the company’s innovation and digital transformation. He described the initial challenges that led to the genesis of the Search project in the R&D department and how this project evolved to a company-wide initiative serving the 60.000 AstraZeneca’s employees’ needs.

Big Thanks to our Customers and Partners for Attending Sinequa Inform’18 in NYC and Joining the Information-Driven Revolution

On Wednesday, September 12th, we were joined by a mix of customers, prospects, and partners at Inform’18, our 3rd annual user community event in New York City. The event provided attendees with the opportunity to mingle with Sinequa experts, partners and customers, to hear how our Cognitive Search & Analytics platform is being leveraged across different industries and use cases. The beautiful venue – Monarch Rooftop Lounge, overlooking the Empire State Building – was packed with attendees representing a variety of prestigious organizations in Pharma, Finance, Defense & Aerospace and more in an informal setting, providing the perfect environment for learning and networking.

We had the pleasure to have as our keynote speaker Mike Gualtieri, Vice President & Principal Analyst at Forrester, who kicked-off the afternoon with a very enlightening presentation about the trends in AI-powered search to enable the Information-Driven Enterprise while differentiating between “pure AI” vs. “pragmatic AI” and existing AI building blocks with true business benefits.

Divya Harinder from AkamaiAs for every community event, Sinequa allocated a lot of time to our customers to take the center stage to highlight their journey to become Information-Driven. Divya Harinder, Manager, Engineering at Akamai Technologies, the world’s largest and most trusted cloud delivery platform, made the trip from Boston, MA, to detail their recent Sinequa implementation to connect the dots (over 20 data repositories as a starting point) and optimize the search user experience for thousands of knowledge workers with a slick “Akamaized UI”.

Then, Shefali Pathak, Global Search Owner at Celgene, a leading NJ-based biotechnology company, walked us through “CelSearch” providing the users insightful information extracted from over 50 million documents and records. The speakers were then joined by Kamran Khan of Accenture for an interactive panel discussion moderated by Sinequa Director of Product Marketing, Scott Parker. Panelists took questions from the audience, making this part of the event very informative and engaging for those in attendance.
