Find value in content and empower business intelligence

Computers have a difficult time determining meaning in unstructured text – and there is too much of it for humans to cope with. Consequently, the vast majority of the enterprise’s human intelligence – those man-years of experience that every organization has – is not being used to drive business decisions. Content intelligence is the solution to this problem.

When you consider the massive volume increases in content and the speed at which the business demands it be processed, it's clear that organizations can no longer rely on manual application of metadata. The ability to make the content "self-describing" is an economic imperative – not just a "nice to have". Smartlogic Semaphore is the content intelligence platform that makes content self-describing.


Classification is the process of describing a piece of content (a contract, a proposal, a policy), determining what it's about (products, projects, people, clients, and business topics), and applying record keeping policies (distributed, secured, archived) by adding one or more tags to the metadata. The classification process can be carried out in multiple ways; manually, assisted or automatically to give you full control and understanding of your information and the classification process.

Understanding all the content that exists in an organization – controlling it, enabling users to access, find, reuse and repurpose it – drastically enhances the efficiency of the organization.


Better Analytics

Using fact and sentiment extraction the analysis can be fed into downstream content management systems, search engines and data stores, to create content flow and product reports, drive information governance processes, and provide support to applications that rely on extracting data from text.


Big Data Analytics

Big Data is associated with three dimensions: Volume, Velocity and Variety. These dimensions are the key business drivers pushing organizations away from traditional technologies toward alternatives as they deal with the complexities of the increasing volume (amount of data), velocity (of change), and variety (range of data types, sources) of information flowing into their organization.

Big data has infrastructure requirements for distributed storage, parallel processing, high availability and agility. The organizational goal; rapidly analyze the data in real or near-real time and use it to drive business decisions with the intention to gain a competitive advantage.


Taxonomy & Ontology

Define what's important to your organization, your industry and your business processes by creating a classification model with Semaphore Ontology Manager.

A classification model, also called a taxonomy, ontology or controlled vocabulary, provides a way to describe and organize a domain of knowledge. Semaphore Ontology Manager lets you create a classification model that precisely represents the important terms, topics and concepts to your organization and then apply it to your content. This process allows you to find the content you need when you need it, apply governance policies, secure sensitive information, harmonize your data and drive business processes to manage critical business functions.


Improve Search

Leave frustrating search behind, save time, and increase efficiency with semantic search.


Information Governance

All information managers know that adhering to a legally mandated records keeping practice is an important compliance task. Failure to enforce best practices can lead to fines, sanctions and loss of reputation to the organization.

Applying the principals of Content Intelligence to improve information governance enables organizations to reduce storage costs, mitigate litigation, reputation and regulatory risks and allows users to quickly find the information they need. Using the Semaphore platform, organizations can build a solid and defensible information governance strategy.


Text Analytics

Text analytics describes a set of linguistic, statistical, and machine learning techniques that model and structure the information content of textual sources for the purposes of driving business intelligence, data analysis, and research.

Semaphore helps you define what is meaningful to your organization so you can analyze content to gain insight, drive business processes, comply with governmental regulations, and gain a competitive advantage.


Visualize Content

Semaphore's Ontology Visualization Tool lets you quickly navigate your classification model to locate and drill into the information you need. Terms are represented by bubbles and relationships are color coded resulting in an intuitive visual representation you can explore.

The Ontology Review Tool’s browser-based implementation improves collaboration and allows URL sharing and bookmarking to quickly locate and communicate information with other model builders. Our integration with Microsoft SharePoint lets you use the web parts for searching or browsing the model or term store to identify the correct classification tag.
