EADS IW selects Sinequa Corporate Search to assist researchers in a global knowledge sharing and economic intelligence project

Online PR News – 29-April-2009 – – EADS Innovation Works (EADS IW), the research labs of the EADS group, has selected the search engine Sinequa Corporate Search to facilitate the work of researchers in an economic intelligence project. This project brings together over 700 scientists located in France, Germany, Spain and England.

"Faced with a growing document base that contains more than ten million documents in 4 languages, it was essential for EADS IW to have a tool to help researchers quickly find information" said Sylvère Sarciaux, Project Manager, EADS IW. "Sinequa has convinced us of the quality of its search engine Sinequa Corporate Search based on its proven multilingual semantic technology. Security management of access rights and the number of turnkey connectors to index multiple types of documents is a real plus."

Sinequa Corporate Search was deployed in France and Germany and will soon be extended to researchers based in Spain and England. Designed to index document bases that are both internal (scientific and technical papers, reports, presentations ...) and external (RSS feeds, Internet, aeronautical and technology publications...), the search engine provides quick and relevant access to information for a large number of researchers. In addition to reliable and efficient document retrieval, Sinequa Corporate Search allows the generation of individual alerts and will soon offer search of "experts" (“those who know”).

The economic challenge for Sinequa Corporate Search is to allow a team of researchers spread over several countries and working in several languages on a range of different subjects, to work as effectively as a single team located in one site. The process and methodology combined with tools for knowledge sharing such as Sinequa Corporate Search ensure the coordination of all researchers.

“EADS Innovation Works is emblematic of the needs which Sinequa Corporate Search meets: a population of smart people working on multiple subjects in a global environment and whose perimeter may change regularly, plus a variety of sources and especially the extremely demanding security requirements," says Jean Ferré, President of Sinequa. "We're working to make Sinequa Corporate Search save a lot of time and energy of the EADS Innovation Works researchers by improving connections between them and thus contributing to the knowledge of their business.”
