  • 2012

Brook­lyn, NY, and Erfurt, Ger­many – Q‑Sensei Corp., the multi-dimen­sional search and index­ing tech­nol­ogy com­pany, has been lauded win­ner of the 2012 Inno­va­tion­spreis-IT (IT Inno­va­tion Award), Knowl­edge Man­age­ment cat­e­gory at CeBIT, the world’s largest com­puter tech­nol­ogy con­fer­ence. Q‑Sensei, along with 39 other cat­e­gory win­ners – from cloud to social media – was rec­og­nized on Fri­day, March 9, at IBM’s booth at CeBIT in Hanover, Germany.

The annual award, given by Ini­tia­tive Mit­tel­stand (Ger­man Ini­tia­tive for Small and Medium Enter­prises), and this year under the patron­age of IBM and the Beauf­tragte der Bun­desregierung für Infor­ma­tion­stech­nik (Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment Com­mis­sioner for Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy), rec­og­nizes var­ied tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies with “inno­v­a­tive solu­tions that can help SMEs main­tain com­pet­i­tive advantage.”

Over 2,500 tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies applied in 40 cat­e­gories for the pres­ti­gious award, now in its ninth year. Win­ners were selected by a jury of over 100 indus­try experts. The Knowl­edge Man­age­ment cat­e­gory includes solu­tions in busi­ness intel­li­gence, knowl­edge man­age­ment, knowl­edge engi­neer­ing, idea man­age­ment, and inno­va­tions man­age­ment. Q‑Sensei’s next-gen­er­a­tion search and index­ing plat­form helps com­pa­nies of all sizes orga­nize, man­age and lever­age the wealth of data from which infor­ma­tion and knowl­edge can be gleaned for busi­ness advan­tage. Its search plat­form also serves as a core for search-based appli­ca­tions, pro­vid­ing an enriched user expe­ri­ence for data-inten­sive applications.

We are hum­bled and hon­ored to be among a great group of win­ners,” said Ute Rother, Q‑Sensei CEO. “We would like to thank Ini­tia­tive Mit­tel­stand, its jury, as well as the award patrons, IBM and the Beauf­tragte der Bun­desregeierung für IT, for this won­der­ful recog­ni­tion.” More infor­ma­tion on the award and list of win­ners can be found at

Opens New York Office

Q‑Sensei also announces that it has planted roots in the Brook­lyn bor­ough of New York City, a grow­ing hotbed for tech­nol­ogy star­tups. Q‑Sensei’s Brook­lyn office is located in the heart of MetroTech, adja­cent to NYU/Polytechnic University.

We are affix­ing our­selves in the cap­i­tal of the most data-inten­sive com­pa­nies in the world,” said Ute Rother, CEO. “Being in New York City brings us closer to the com­pa­nies in need of advanced and effi­cient search solu­tions for a vari­ety of inter­nal and exter­nal data-heavy busi­ness func­tions – such as improv­ing employee pro­duc­tiv­ity in find­ing rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion, increas­ing cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion or accel­er­at­ing busi­ness inno­va­tion through cor­re­lated views of data.”

In addi­tion to the new office, Q‑Sensei has a newly-revamped web­site with more infor­ma­tion on Q‑Sensei’s multi-dimen­sional search tech­nol­ogy and search-based appli­ca­tions which are applic­a­ble to any indus­try and business.
