San Jose, CA – May 15th, 2017 – Smartlogic Semaphore Inc. makers of the world-class semantic platform Semaphore, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, as a Visionary in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Insight Engines.

Gartner defines Insight Engines in the following way; “Insight Engines apply relevancy methods to describe, discover, organize and analyze data. This allows existing or synthesized information to be delivered proactively or interactively, and in the context of digital workers, customers or constituents at timely business moments.

Insight engines gather content from a broad spectrum of sources, including those relevant to the immediate needs of digital workers. They extend beyond enterprise search by providing the capability to engage with content and extract insights without touching the source of that content.

Natural language and rich context are used in such interactions, which will come to rely less on a search box and a button and more on proactivity over time.”

“We’re pleased to be positioned as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Insight Engines,” Jeremy Bentley, CEO Smartlogic. “In today’s marketplace the way that knowledge workers interact with information is rapidly changing. The diverse nature and multiple sources of information available require organizations extend beyond enterprise search. The solution in this rapidly evolving environment requires an innovative approach, which incorporates a sophisticated semantic platform that can address a wide variety of business challenges.”

The Semaphore platform uniquely approaches today’s information challenges by leveraging semantic technologies to enrich each information asset with precise and consistent metadata. It identifies relationships and brings them to light in real-time to visualize and discover new insights. And it harmonizes information from disparate sources to provide a complete picture of all enterprise information to deliver a compelling discovery experience.
