Today Government and Intelligence agencies are under increasing pressure to maximize budgets and minimize development time of solutions that support critical functions. They must deal with the volume, velocity and variable nature of information flowing into their systems to manage the constant demand for open government and information transparency.

To be effective, Governmental and Intelligence agencies require enterprise-grade solutions that allow them to:

  • Unify and harmonize a variety of data types from disparate sources to provide a single view of their organization and support key operations.
  • Provide relevant information to a broad range of internal and external stakeholders in real-time to support critical functions and decision making.
  • Implement information governance best practices to support consistent records management policies and procedures that drive transparency.
  • Ensure compliance with governmental mandates such as, Federal Information Management Security Act, HIPPA and Privacy Act Program to eliminate security breaches and safeguard information.

At Smartlogic we understand the value complete information brings to Government and Intelligence agencies. Semaphore, our sophisticated semantic platform, enables them to quickly understand and unify all information into a single platform to support key decision-making, comply with governmental mandates and support information transparency initiatives.

Supports Key Decision Making

Whether you’re providing services to families and children, managing healthcare reform or analyzing a hostile situation to support ground troops, the ability to unify information into a single source and use it to make time-sensitive decisions can directly affect outcomes.

When needed information is locked up in disparate silos, stored in multiple formats and the vocabulary used to describe each item is domain specific, governmental agencies must have the tools and technology that allow them to unify all information into a single platform so they can provide complete and up-to-date information to support research, information gathering and key decision making efforts.

With Semaphore Government and Intelligence agencies can:

  • Define their organization - model the topics, concepts and vocabulary that uniquely define your organization and content.
  • Apply rich metadata – generate rulebases from the model and use them to semantically enrich each information asset with precise and consistent metadata and express the output as industry-standard RDF triples.
  • Discover new relationships – using the contextually rich triples, Semaphore identifies relationships and brings them to light in real-time, to visualize and discover new insights.
  • Aggregate and link disparate data sources – unifies and links information from disparate sources to provide a complete picture of all information; agencies can make informed critical decisions.
  • Drive relevant search – leverages model and metadata information to deliver a compelling search and retrieval experience. Integrates with major content management, search engines and graph databases so you can find, discover, analyze and govern content.

The Semaphore platform provides the tools and technologies to Government and Intelligence agencies to unify disparate silos, provide context to their information assets and deliver a compelling search and retrieval experience to deliver the right information to the right person at the right time.

Information Governance and Records Management Best Practices

As government and intelligence agencies continue to come under scrutiny, new privacy mandates proliferate and calls for open government persist, the need for a platform that supports compliance initiatives is required. The capabilities of the Semaphore platform helps government and intelligence agencies comply with:

  • Federal Information Management Security Act - United States legislation that defines a comprehensive framework to protect government information, operations and assets against natural or man-made threats
  • HIPPA - HIPPA privacy rules, which proscribes appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information, sets limits and conditions on information sharing and identifies patients’ rights over their own records.
  • Privacy Act Program - establishes safeguards for the protection of records the Government collects and keeps on individuals. Prevents agencies from creating secret files on individuals, informs individuals about the need and use of collected information, assures information is only used as intended and provides a mechanism for individual review and update of collected information.

With Semaphore, agencies can identify and secure individual fields and information assets to comply with Privacy Act Program, HIPPA and other mandates and provide transparency and consistency for information governance workflows.

Smartlogic’s Semaphore is an enterprise-grade, semantic platform that works with Government and Intelligence agencies to build strong knowledge infrastructures that uncover real value in content, drive information governance and transparency and achieve business goals. We offer a unique set of tools and technologies that enhance your existing technology investments and provide cost savings through the reuse and repurposing of existing components.
