The Promise of the Semantic Web, Truth or Fiction?

by Ann Kelly

In today’s business environment, unstructured information has become one of the most valuable resources in an organization and its rate of growth is staggering. The need to extract information from internal and external sources and integrate it into existing systems for use in key business decisions is critical to maintaining a competitive advantage. 

The Semantic Web was supposed to help us solve this problem. All information would be available, required facts would be a click away and intelligent agents would locate things. The reality; the world is disillusioned. The volume, velocity and variety of data flowing into organizations is out of control, the quality of public information is suspect, and the context in which that information was created is seldom obvious.

From Taxonomy Bootcamp to Smartlogic

by Jim Morris

When I attended my first Taxonomy Bootcamp meeting back in 2009 I thought taxonomies and taxonomists were all the rage; actually I still do. However, my fundamental beliefs about taxonomies and the taxonomy profession were shaken to their core by comments made at that conference. Those comments set my career on a path that ultimately led me to work at Smartlogic.

Proactive Healthcare with Content Intelligence

by Ann Kelly

As medical technology evolves and medical care improves, life expectancy rises. In 2012, the overall life expectancy in the United States was 79.8, up from 77.9 in 2007.  Individuals over the age of 65 who spend more on health care services than their younger counterparts will comprise one-fifth of the population by 2050.

Each year one in three individuals over the age of seventy-five will experience a fall. In four out of ten incidents the result will lead to hospitalization, a long period of immobilization and recovery, surgery or in some cases death.  As the population ages, this problem becomes more acute.  And more expensive.

Semaphore Empowers Life Science Organizations

by Ann Kelly

Since I started at Smartlogic I’ve spent more time lately looking at news associated with the markets we serve. Today, life sciences companies face many challenges from rising development costs to increased government regulation and reporting to profitability demands from directors, boards and shareholders. And if that weren’t enough, like many organizations they’re battling an influx of structured and unstructured information coming at them from a wide variety of sources in many formats.

While most companies have a place to store and manage their structured data it’s interesting to note that most of the valuable intelligence organizations have can’t be processed using traditional technologies. They need a technology that can unlock the value in the unstructured data; here’s where Smartlogic can help.

Metadata Extraction and Classification; Ontology or Statistically Derived?

by Ann Kelly

Let’s face it, if you’re like most organizations you have more data than you can manage and the amount of data flowing into your systems is increasing at a rate faster than you can handle. You’ve most likely implemented a content management system with the confidence that your problems are solved, another item checked off your list right?

Yet as you begin to organize data, your folder structures become complex. With increased document volumes, accurate and precise manual tagging and classification of your content becomes a burden and is often done in a hurried and imprecise manner (or not at all) which means that not only is it difficult to find content, but the metadata that you depend on for proper information governance is missing.

Surviving without Content Intelligence - Chapter 3

by Steve Ingram

A story in 3 parts wherein Archie the Architect tries to build a Single View of the Customer without using Content Intelligence.

Chapter 3: Archie’s having problems with his Relationship(s)

The story so far…

Many, many months ago, the Board of Peck Templeton (a company that sells lots of stuff) decided to create a “Single View of the Customer” to meet a number of challenges in the short and medium term. They entrusted the project to an experienced Architect named Archie, and now have an MDM implementation and a shiny new Hadoop cluster. Unfortunately, Archie doesn’t know anything about Content Intelligence, which is why they still don’t have a Single View of the Customer, despite months of effort.
