Q-Sensei Corp., the next-generation search technology company, announced today that its enterprise search platform, Q-Sensei Enterprise, was lauded by the business consulting firm Frost & Sullivan with the 2012 Global Enterprise Search Price Performance Value Leadership Award.
Q-Sensei Enterprise features a proprietary and unique search engine that processes and analyzes enterprise data from multiple silos and presents search results organized by multiple data dimensions, which it calls multi-dimensional search. The end result is better accuracy and greater relevancy when searching for business-critical information from large amounts of data.
"We conducted a thorough analysis on the global enterprise search market to understand the prevailing market and technology trends. In particular, we sought out solutions that provide a combination of innovation and leadership in four key benchmarking areas, in combination with optimal pricing, providing a return on investment in the shortest period of time," said Sashankh Kale, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan.
The key benchmarking criteria for the Price Performance Value Leadership Award were: price competitiveness, features, ease of use, and matching to client needs. As part of its analysis, Frost & Sullivan nominated Q-Sensei among the top three companies for the award.
"Globally, enterprises are having to store, process, retrieve and deliver huge amounts of information, very often on a real-time basis. Customers no longer seek solutions that merely find relevant information in response to a semantic query. Current demand is for offerings that discover and provide analytics on all the valuable data available in and external to the enterprises," continued Kale. "Q-Sensei delivers greater data interaction with its multi-dimensional search platform, which offers advanced search and on-the-fly filtering, as well as advanced analytical and visualization capabilities. In addition, it's ontology-driven data processing utilizes ontologies to store business logic and intelligence for faster deployment, and ROI for search-based applications. Q-Sensei is the first enterprise search company to offer this and has first-mover advantage over its two rivals."
"We are offering a new search experience as well as a new approach to tackling the Big Data challenge to unlock the most value out of business data with efficiency, all while being mindful of value and return. We thank Frost & Sullivan for the recognition and distinction of our efforts," said Ute Rother, CEO of Q-Sensei.
