A solid information strategy with Semaphore

Many organizations use a “store everything” approach as an effective risk mitigation strategy. However, information handling best practices are increasingly focused on governance, management and disposal.

The cornerstone to a solid information strategy is the ability to retain the information you need, discard what you don’t and provide all stakeholders within the enterprise the information they require. Knowing what information exists in the enterprise is key to protecting intellectual property and minimizing exposure to risk.

Yet like most things these days there are trade-offs and challenges:

  • The volume of information is increasing at extremely high velocities and new information formats and types are emerging every day.
  • Accurately evaluating information assets to identify valuable versus redundant, outdated and trivial information and applying the appropriate metadata, retention policy and security markers is difficult, if not impossible, to do without automation.
  • Organizations are ill-equipped to deal with this challenge in terms of organizational structure, policy and process.

Semaphore, our semantic platform, enhances an enterprise’s existing information management strategy by enriching information assets with precise, complete and consistent metadata, harmonizing all enterprise vocabularies against a consistent model and extracting critical facts and relationships for analytics and compliance.
