Internet of Things: Semantic Tech Has A Role, If Businesses Can Figure Out What IoT Means To Them

Semantic technology will have a starring role in the Internet of Things. Supporting interoperability between heterogeneous IoT entities, playing a part in driving much-needed application agility and adaptability through model-driven computing, and helping businesses cope with understanding and analyzing the influx of Big, and often unstructured, Data generated not just by humans but now by devices – all provide use cases for semantic tech.

And it’s becoming increasingly clear that semantic tech will be playing a role in what should be a very major motion picture. Just recently released is a new market research report entitled, Internet of Things Market & Machine-To-Machine Communication Market – Advanced Technologies, Future Cities & Adoption Trends, Roadmaps & Worldwide Forecasts (2012 – 2017). The report, published by Markets and Markets, notes that the IoT and M2M communications market will reach $290.0 Billion by 2017, at a CAGR of 30.1 percent.

The e-discovery market is a growing one, with Gartner this year estimating electronic data discovery software sales will reach $2.9 billion by 2017. The same research firm just recently positioned where vendors fall in that space, with the release of its Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery software.

The Rise of ‘Big Content’

Virginia Backaitis of CMS Wire recently discussed the rise of Big Content and how semantic technologies are taking a role in mining value from said content. She writes, “The first time I heard the term Big Content, I thought ‘Oh brother.’ At the time, the people who used the term “Big Content” either talked about it in terms of content that went beyond their control (i.e. viral) and said that this was a highly desirable thing OR they argued that ‘content’ was growing at a rapid clip, and that Big Data technologies, such as Hadoop, were incapable of dealing with voluminous unstructured data — that you needed something called ‘Big Content’ to do that.” Read more

ADmantX Named “Cool Vendor” in E-Commerce by Gartner

NEW YORK, NEW YORK–(Marketwired – May 15, 2013) - ADmantX, the next-generation contextual analysis and semantic data provider, today announced that it has been included in Gartner “Cool Vendors for E-Commerce, 2013″ report, published on April 9, 2013, and authored by Chris Fletcher, Gene Alvarez, Praveen Sengar, Penny Gillespie, Regina Casonato, Andrew Frank.

The report reviews five vendors that provide innovative offerings in the digital marketing, social products, and digital and social e-commerce space. The main issue limiting the online advertising market is the disconnect between advertisement placement and the relevance of the copy. This is due to the reliance on keyword frequency without considering the meaning. Ads may appear on pages that have little significance to the assigned page or may produce counterproductive effects. Semantic technology automatically extracts the meaning in text to increase the relevance of ads, and maximize the website visitor’s receptiveness to advertising content. Read more

Help is on the way. Three experts in semantic web technologies and Linked Data weigh in with their advice on heading down that road:

NoSQL Database Platform Vendor MarkLogic Gets $25 Million, Promises To Go Deep On Semantics

Enterprise NoSQL database platform provider MarkLogic has come into some cash: a $25 million round of growth capital from investors including Sequoia Capital, Tenaya Capital, Northgate Capital, CEO Gary Bloom and other corporate executives. Yesterday, at the company’s MarkLogic World 2013 conference, Bloom also prepared the audience to hear more today from company executives about MarkLogic’s next steps in semantics for its MarkLogic Server technology that ingests, manages and searches structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data.

“The way to think about this is that when we look at semantics, we didn’t … say we just want to check a box on semantics,” Bloom said, by working with partners on some low-hanging fruit – although it will be collaborating with them on various semantic enrichment capabilities. “We think semantics is critical technology, and more interesting I believe is that it is a critical technology that is both a search technology as well as a database technology.” Others in the marketplace will focus on changing their search engines to do semantics, but optimum results won’t come if all that’s being done is layering in semantics at the search level, he said.
