Airbus Defence and Space

Success Story

Airbus Defence and Space has chosen the Sinequa solution to provide unified information access and search functionality across numerous information silos and across the entire enterprise. The company's business encompasses launch vehicles, manned space activities and satellite systems and related services, in other words, complex systems that come with large amounts of documentation, specifications, guidelines, contracts, etc. The geographically distributed organization of the company increases the difficulty to always find the right information at the right time. Employees from business functions as diverse as Engineering, IT, HR, Finance - basically anyone - will be served by the new unified Search capability. In HR, for example, people will look for HR policy, guidelines, and information on mobility that tends to be different in each country Astrium is active in. Engineers are mainly interested in "lessons learned" in order to avoid doing the same work twice or - even worse - repeating painful and wasteful experiences. Everyone, often within geographically distributed teams, expects to find information easily and intuitively, while safeguarding security and corresponding access restrictions.
