Interested in discovering what’s happened to some of the enterprise search vendors that have piqued your interest in the past? You may want to head here, where enterprise search industry expert and author of the Enterprise Search Report Stephen E. Arnold of ArnoldIT is posting a series of profiles of firms that have tried and failed – or in some cases, still are trying to – make a business in enterprise search.
It’s not easy, Arnold writes: “Search is a very difficult problem to solve and turn into a sustainable business.”
KMWorld has named Smartlogic one of the “100 Companies That Matter” in the field of knowledge management for the second year in a row. According to the article, “Smartlogic, with its US headquarters in San Jose, CA, are the makers of Semaphore, the Content Intelligence Platform now used world-wide by hundreds of leading business enterprises. Semaphore complements an organization’s investments in Enterprise Search, Business Intelligence and Content Management with Content Intelligence… According to the KMWorld judges, Smartlogic’s Semaphore software was singled out for its unique component capabilities to analyze, classify and reveal content by offering ontology management, content classification, text mining and semantic analysis.” Read more
How efficient is the enterprise at using information? An independent report being released today from MindMetre Research, sponsored by semantic content intelligence vendor Smartlogic, offers up an Industry Information Index that benchmarked organizations in 20 industry sectors – and finds that information efficiency is fundamentally unsatisfactory.
The benchmarks considered as markers of information efficiency enterprise search effectiveness; information categorization effectiveness; and categorization and search progress and investment. They also explored the fragmentation of information systems at responding companies. Fewer than half the 2,000 firms surveyed worldwide rated their sector as capable across the four categories, indicating issues around tasks such as systematizing documents to make them findable across the enterprise, or enabling internal users and clients to receive precisely filtered information feeds.
Smartlogic recently released a new version of its Semaphore software, which took home the 2011 European Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award. Version 3.3 adds new semantically-rich features, but the company itself has been shifting its strategy to talk about its solution less as the enterprise semantic platform and more as a content intelligence platform for identifying, classifying, extracting, analyzing and utilizing hard-to-find information from among unstructured assets in existing information management systems like Microsoft SharePoint.
Why? According to marketing VP Maya Natarajan, it’s an in to better customer access. “Whenever you think of the word semantic, there’s such a small percentage of the population that understands what it is,” she says. “But amazingly the uptake for content intelligence is so great. People immediately understand that so much quicker” — that is, she says, that content intelligence describes all the business reasons and benefits for deploying an enterprise semantic platform.
Another way to make the virtues of content intelligence even more obvious: Smartlogic is planning to introduce prebuilt starter taxonomies to kickstart the process in some vertical sectors. Meanwhile, Version 3.3 has brought to its customers features that still proclaim its semantic heritage, including a semantic visualization tool.
After analyzing the current market, Frost & Sullivan has recognized Smartlogic with the 2011 European Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award. The award was given for Smartlogic’s content intelligence platform, Semaphore: “This content intelligence platform effectively harnesses the potential of existing information management and enterprise search applications, resulting in better performance.” Frost & Sullivan commented, “Semaphore successfully meets the content search, management and intelligence requirements of enterprises… This technological innovation endows existing enterprise systems with the capability to find, organize, process, monetize, control and govern unstructured content in an efficient manner.” Read more
Semantic technology firm SmartLogic has acquired SchemaLogic. With the acquisition, SmartLogic has added “multiple new Fortune 1000 enterprise clients to its customer list and adding SchemaLogic’s family of products to its application portfolio.” The article states, “As information volumes and interest in semantic technology grows, so does the content intelligence market. Today, however, the market contracted slightly with SmartLogic’s acquisition of competitor SchemaLogic. Both companies provide tools that complement enterprise search, content management and business intelligence solutions by tagging, enhancing metadata and classifying content so organizations can better find, organize, process and control their information assets.” Read more
A recent article reports that “Enterprise search specialists Smartlogic have sponsored a groundbreaking new study from MindMetre Research, the leading consumer and business analysts. The survey of more than 2,000 directors and managers in the US, UK, Germany and France reveals that enterprise search is falling far short of expectations and that in 52% of European and US businesses it falls below the minimum benchmark. The report, entitled ‘Mind The Search Gap’, analyses the gap between enterprise search expectations and real life experiences, and observes that 52% of US and European businesses cannot find information they seek within an acceptable amount of time.” Read more
A recent article reports on the success of Smartlogic’s Semaphore with EPiServer 6 websites. Rufus Leonard, a London/Dubai-based digital agency, “completed a successful integration project where the semantic capabilities of Smartlogic‘s Semaphore software were used in conjunction with the popular EPiServer 6 web content management system. The result is a semantic website that appropriately models the client’s business while allowing users to locate unstructured content, efficiently integrated into a content management system.” Read more
