We hear it often, organizations are spending more time struggling with their data than benefiting from it. The need to integrate all enterprise information is critical in today’s marketplace, but legacy systems make it costly and time-consuming. In fact, organizations are spending a large percentage of their IT budget on data integration yet are still unable to close the gap between their operational and analytical needs.
For decades, organizations have relied on traditional data warehouses and data schemas to produce operational data and enterprise analytics. The effort associated with designing, implementing and maintaining schemas, data extracts and data feeds is significant. And these methods only incorporate structured data, which is 20% of enterprise information - unstructured data is not integrated.
The key to solving the data problem is harmonization; the ability to bring together all information – structured and unstructured, internal and external to the organization - into a single hub that can be used for analytics, governance and to drive workflows and downstream systems.
Harmonizing information using a Semantic Metadata Hub provides advantages over traditional data management technologies:
Semaphore’s model management and automatic classification services link information across silos and integrate with upstream and downstream systems to provide a holistic view of all information. Our customers are delivering enterprise value with a Semaphore Semantic Metadata Hub using the full set of information to drive their business.
CEO and Founder
Data Harmonization with a Semantic Metadata Hub
The shift toward an information-centric digital economy has increased the pace of data collection as well as the need for technologies that can interpret and understand enterprise information. IDC Research predicts the digital universe will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 42% through 2020. This digital transformation provides expanded opportunity — and additional risk. The rapid growth in the volume and variety of information can be painful when organizations lack the advanced technology and management systems needed to extract value from their data.
When information is distributed throughout the enterprise, housed in disparate silos and stored in a variety of formats and vocabularies, organizations are unable to find the information they need to make critical data-driven business decisions, assess their level of regulatory compliance, and understand market trends and opportunities.
Managing enterprise data with a Semantic Metadata Hub, let’s organizations integrate all enterprise information into a single view to take intelligent action. Our semantic platform Semaphore connects data silos, unifies enterprise information and applies context and meaning to all assets. Semaphore metadata creates a hub of information that organizations use to drive their business.

Join us at the third edition of the symposium on the Semantic Web in Quebec on June 19, 2018, at TÉLUQ. Registration is free, but places are limited - Register now.
The mastery of semantic web technologies and the culture of data are the essential levers for the digital transformation of our society and our organizations. We want to identify the challenges facing organizations and institutions and tighten the network of theorists and practitioners of the semantic web in Quebec.
With the main theme of “Data to Knowledge”, the program, will focus on:
Acquisition and processing of massive data, especially those obtained from connected objects.
Machine learning and semantization of data.
Analysis and drilling of data and documents to extract knowledge.
Natural language processing for the extraction of knowledge in the form of ontologies.
Modeling knowledge in the form of vocabularies or ontologies.
Ontological scripting of the processes of knowledge and data use.
Designing environments mobilizing the web of related data.
