The public sector is in the midst of a digital information tsunami. Faced with increasing pressures to reduce budgets yet deliver high quality services and information to the public and meet stringent privacy and security regulations, government agencies need a 21st Century technology that will enable them to do more with less.
Smartlogic’s Semaphore is a Content Intelligent Platform that complements an organization’s investments in Enterprise Search, Business Intelligence and Content Management to provide effective, rapid and accurate control of, and access to, unstructured content with a speed, accuracy and intelligence not achievable today through existing systems that are strained from soaring information volumes. Government agencies do not have to “rip and replace” existing infrastructure and investments in Enterprise Search (Google Search Appliance, MS FAST, Lucene, etc) and Content Management (MS SharePoint, OpenText, Documentum, etc); rather Semaphore endows these systems with capabilities, such as taxonomy & ontology management, automatic classification and contextual navigation, so that organizations can better find, organize, process, monetize, control and govern unstructured content.

From drug discovery to development to patient care, Semaphore's content classification and search enhancement capabilities are working hard across the life sciences and healthcare spectrum.
Life sciences companies are under constant pressure to bring products to market quicker, maximize their return on each new product introduced to the market, comply with stringent government regulations, understand the impact of patent expiration on their product portfolio, and to rapidly respond to competition from other life sciences companies and generic products.
Information is the lifeblood of this industry – from discovery to clinical trials to development to sales and marketing – and needs to be carefully managed so that scientists and researchers can access, search and reuse information that is essential to R&D innovation.
Regulations are strife in the Life Sciences industry. Apart from standard regulations such as corporate governance, risk, and compliance, the life sciences industry has to also address a broad range of industry specific regulations like 21 CFR Part 11 or GCPS, GMPS, etc.
Media and publishing organizations create and manage huge content repositories. Free-text searches help users access it, but to manage and promote the content it needs to be grouped into manageable topic areas.
Semaphore adds the topic tags and maintains a map of links between topics. This capability makes feeds more relevant to the user, makes adverts more relevant to the content and helps the editorial team identify content gaps.
Research-intensive organizations including consultancies, life sciences, legal firms, membership societies, technical and engineering development firms all derive benefit from being able to locate and re-use knowledge that can be lost in their enterprise systems.
"Joined up government" relies on the ease of transferring data and more and more unstructured text content between departments and agencies and out to the public. An Enterprise Semantic Platform provides a viable alternative to bottom-up restructuring of systems.
From complex investment portals to back-office classification to drive work flow and compliance processes, Semaphore's content classification and search enhancement capabilities are working hard for many financial services clients.
