Sinequa Recognized as a Leader in the Gartner 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search

header-gartner-ballon-7

As of 19 August 2015, Gartner, Inc. recognized Sinequa as a leader in the recently released Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search. Leaders are recognized for their “completeness of vision” as well as their “ability to execute”.

Sinequa moved up into the “Leaders” quadrant from our position amongst the “Visionaries” in the 2014 Magic Quadrant. We incorporated significant technical innovation in its product over the last year, and gained a number of high profile customers in the USA and Europe. Our customers showed great creativity in implementing impressive use cases with strong ROI. Using Sinequa as a unified information access platform, they were able to increase their agility to the point of coming up with Search Based Applications (SBA) within a few weeks. In the process, they gained greatly in standing with their user community and are considered real “business partners” for them. 

According to Gartner, “leaders have the highest combined measures of ability to execute and completeness of vision. They have the most comprehensive and scalable product portfolios. They have a proven track record of established market presence and financial performance. For vision, they are perceived in the industry as thought leaders, and have well-articulated plans for enhancing recovery capabilities, improving ease of deployment and administration, and increasing their scalability and product breadth.”

What About Having 140+ Connectors To All Your Enterprise Data Sources?

An Enterprise Search platform only deserves its name if it connects easily to all or at least most your data sources. If you need access to a data source, you want to have it now, not in 3 months’ time.  Or rather: you need to have it now.

Sinequa offers more than 140 indexing connectors ready for use, developed by our R&D team who can thus control quality and performance. The connectors are non-intrusive, meaning they do not alter in any way the contents and data to be indexed – and they “remember” access rights to all data. Moreover, Sinequa provides a generic connector as a template for developing any additional connectors you may need.

The Sinequa R&D team has continued to develop new connectors to data sources, now at a total of 140 (including PTC Windchill, Mongo DB, Scality, Office 365, box…), as well as to refine language analysis in the 20 languages covered by Sinequa, specifically in Asian languages including Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

You want to go into the cloud? We are already waiting for you.

The Sinequa platform integrates with the major cloud offerings, in particular with Amazon Web Services (AWS) such that customers can benefit from an “elastic” computing facility hosted on the Amazon cloud, and from certain services specific to AWS. The “elasticity” of Sinequa on AWS lets customers instantly scale computing resources to their requirements at each moment in time, be it for the indexing of a large new data source or when adding a large number of users spread across geographical regions.

An Out-Of-the-Box Connectivity to the most widespread structured and unstructured data sources facilitates and accelerates the integration of the Sinequa Big Data & Search platform with your IT landscape. This makes Sinequa projects most often an order of magnitude shorter than the big IT projects (ERP, CRM, BI, etc.) that IT departments have painfully grown used to in the past.

Have You Heard About SBA “AppStores”?

You are overwhelmed with business data coming from diverse and multiple data sources and with demands from various user populations to make use of this data? In that case you should look at how to construct your own App Store!

You may be wondering “How on earth am I going to that?”

But our customers achieved it! They built their own SBAs on the top of our advanced search & analytics platform. And now, they have created an “SBA factory” serving all kinds of business needs.

Sinequa ES is designed for high performance content analytics across functions and industries, it offers a powerful platform to create search-based applications (SBA) with hitherto unimaginable speed. This allows them to create Apps for any operational, individual and data need.

Our unique content analytics, including Natural Language Processing, produce a “rich” index, with information added on top of the original sources: meta-information, concepts and relationships between contents, etc. Only such a rich index can serve as a platform for an abounding and ever-growing set of Search Based Applications (SBA): Its richness ensures that even the SBAs you haven’t thought of as yet will find the information they need to serve their users in the index. If you need to delve into the original data sources, Apps become too difficult to construct.

Our customer AstraZeneca’s vision is to have Search nourish their next generation of business intelligence software and help create new applications. They have created a particularly innovative “App Store”.

Curious now to know more about these Apps and see how they have been deployed?
