Q-Sensei is Recognized as “Innovative Business Analytics Company to Watch in 2011″ by Leading Market Analyst Firm
ROCKLEDGE, Florida, November 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –
International market research and analyst firm IDC has selected Q-Sensei
as one of six Innovative Business Analytics Companies under $100 Million to
Watch in 2011 (IDC #230923, October 2011). Q-Sensei is a next-generation
search company creating multi-dimensional search-based applications for
enterprise and consumers.
Q-Sensei’s Enterprise Search Platform was recognized by IDC for
exemplifying innovation in the business analytics sub-category of
Collaborative Decision Management – “enabling documentation of decision
processes, provide contextual collaboration, and improve not only
information sharing but the sharing of experience that supplemented the data
to inform a decision.”
Corporations face information access and business analytics
inefficiencies from handling large volumes of data housed in diverse data
stores. Employees are struggling to find the needed information for critical
“New technologies are eliminating boundaries between content and data to
enable pervasive access to all relevant information. Contributing to this
innovation is a group of small companies with the vision and technology to
have an impact on the IT marketplace,” says Henry Morris, senior VP,
Worldwide Software and Services.
IDC noted Q-Sensei’s Enterprise Search Platform (ESP)’s ability to
process and find correlations between various types of data (structured or
unstructured) from diverse information silos, both internal and external.
Q-Sensei takes the information access process even deeper by “normalizing”
the data and providing an organized structure to the content. Furthermore,
Q-Sensei’s ESP captures employee expertise by enabling users to share files,
provide reviews on content or share insights and correlations on information
and data to also consider in the decision-making process.
“We are truly honored by this recognition from IDC,” stated Ute Rother,
CEO of Q-Sensei. “Q-Sensei was borne out of combining two powerful concepts
from a search and information access company and a social knowledge network.
This award affirms our vision that best strategic decisions are supported by
computational power to provide a holistic and correlated view of information
and easy-to-use interfaces for end-users and administrators to leverage
collaboration and employee know-how.”
IDC’s “Innovative Companies Under $100M to Watch” reports are a
qualitative evaluation of a set of vendors within a specific market; they
are not a stack ranking. Nor do they represent an exhaustive evaluation of
all companies in a segment or a comparative ranking of the companies in the
report. IDC solicited entries from vendors of less than $100 million that
exemplify specific key trends (selected by analysts) that are driving change
in a specific software market. Vendors then submitted case studies that
exemplified one of the trends used as the basis for the award. These case
studies were evaluated individually and independently by related market
analysts across several pre-determined criteria. The teams then met to
review the scores. The case studies submitted for review had to demonstrate
that the technology was available, able to be implemented, and provided
real-world benefits to the customer.
Q-Sensei is a new and powerful approach to search navigation which
addresses the increasing volumes of structured and unstructured information
on the Internet, in businesses networks (Intranets), on private computers,
personal databases and hand-held devices. With Q-Sensei, users can quickly
find – and discover – the relevant “needles” in the endless “haystacks” of
data through its powerful multi-dimensional searching and indexing engine.
Multi-dimensional search builds on full-text and faceted search, organizes
and enables search along multiple ‘dimensions’ of data – including but not
limited to date, tag, author, source, language, content type, etc. Q-Sensei
Corp. was formed in 2007 as a Delaware corporation out of a merger of the
German-based social knowledge network Lalisio and the American search
specialist QUASM. Q-Sensei’s Search and Presentation Engine is protected by
U.S. Patents 7,080,059 and 7,680,777. More information can be found at
