Between the amazing work we’ve been doing with our customers and our recent announcement of our brand new SaaS platform, Springboard, Lucidworks is at a critical moment of transformation.

In continuing to make strides toward our vision and transformation into the cloud-based SaaS world, we are so happy to welcome Diane Honda (Chief Administrative Officer, General Counsel, and Secretary at Barracuda Networks) and Adam Famularo (CEO of WorkFusion) to our board of directors.

“I’m looking forward to helping Lucidworks’ transform from an on-prem, large scale engine to a more nimble, modular SaaS solution. Lucidworks’ ability to retain and grow an impressive customer base, which includes heavy hitters across commerce, financial services, and healthcare, is a testament to one of the company’s values: Champion Customers. You can feel this throughout the culture of the organization, and I am excited to continue developing a strategy that best serves customers, employees, and investors as we move forward.”
