GlaxoSmithKline plc (GSK) is a pharmaceutical company headquartered in Brentford, London. Established in 2000 by a merger of Glaxo Wellcome and SmithKline Beecham, GSK was the world’s sixth largest pharmaceutical company as of 2015.
GSK needed a platform that would create personalized and relevant experiences for each of its users around the globe – while allowing them to easily find data. With over 100,000 employees and dozens of different technology systems, its workforce didn’t have a central location that would allow them to be more productive, innovate, and advance the GSK mission.
With the Akumina platform, GSK created a next-generation digital employee Hub for its workforce. The Hub, designed to deliver the right information to the right user on any device and at any time around the globe, is deeply integrated with Autonomy’s IDOL enterprise search engine and the Office 365 and Azure stacks providing a seamless way of finding and creating content relevant to the business.
