The Second Conference on Search-Based Applications: A Sparkling Success!

On June 7th, Exalead clients and partners gathered at the Cité de l’architecture & du patrimoine to share their experiences with Search-Based Applications (SBAs). Exalead CEO Laurent Couillard reflects on the energy of the event:

“This annual conference is a cornerstone of our SBA engagement. Our own vision is immeasurably enriched each time we have the opportunity to come together and share experiences with our partners and clients. Their creativity and innovation is inspiring. Together, we’ve made dramatic progress in using SBAs to solve tough IT challenges and to open up new market opportunities, and the Search-Based Application revolution has only just begun…”

Laurent Couillard partnered with Morgan Zimmermann, VP Sales Worldwide,
to kick off the conference, first with a look back at the evolution of the Search-Based Application model, and then with a look ahead to the innovations
on the horizon for 2012.

The conference was centered on the real-world SBA experiences of clients like Randstad, the world’s second largest HR services provider; La Poste, France’s national postal agency, and travel and tourism leader (SNCF group sites are the third most visited in Europe after Expedia and Priceline), as well as Exalead partners like Capgemini, Business & Decision, ST Groupe, Bull, Décisionnel, Keyrus and CSC. The evening was topped off with the official launch of CLuE, the new CLub of Exalead users, an announcement toasted from the panoramic terrace of the Cité de l’architecture & du patrimoine.

Thank you to all our customers and partners for sharing your experiences at this special event!
