"Any System Connected to Enterprise Information Can Use the Facilities of an Enterprise Semantic Platform," Say Smartlogic

"All applications can benefit from semantic enrichment." Smartlogic, experts in the field of enterprise search, publish white paper outlining the versatility of the enterprise semantic platform.

London, United Kingdom, December 19, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Smartlogic recently delivered a seminar describing how any system connected to enterprise information can use the facilities of an enterprise semantic platform.

Smartlogic are thought-leaders in the field of enterprise search and information management and the developers of Semaphore, the enterprise semantic platform which uses advanced content classification and ontology management to structure data and thus enhance enterprise search and navigation.

The paper, entitled '8 things to consider when using semantics in your information management strategy' is one of a number of presentations made to the AIIM '8 Factors to Consider in Creating an Information Management Strategy' seminar series.

AIIM are a leading non-profit community that focus on helping users to understand the challenges associated with managing documents, content, records and business processes. They provide education, research and best practices to help organisations find, control, and optimise their information.

During his address to the conference, Smartlogic's CEO, Jeremy Bentley, argues that the adoption of a 'platform approach' to semantics means that existing information management investments can all benefit from the one semantic implementation.

According to Bentley,"Embedded enterprise search solutions that offer point solutions for a specific application but are inaccessible to others cause work to be repeated, opportunities missed and benefits diminished. The enterprise semantic platform approach enables data to be structured in a way that ensures management and control of information is effortless - and does not mandate adding more storage, staff or restrictions."

"To elaborate, systems like SharePoint needs automatic classification facilities; content and records management need precise metadata to run the life-cycle; search needs enhanced indices to offer quality facets; websites need search engine optimised pages to be positioned at the top; workflow needs to send information to the right next process, based on its meaning."

He continues, "The enterprise semantic platform approach offers all these capabilities across the whole spectrum of enterprise systems. Not only that but, once deployed, the enterprise semantic platform can be maintained centrally and used over and over again."

Smartlogic's Semaphore software achieves this quickly and efficiently by automatically capturing an organisation's topics, language and context into an ontology.

About Smartlogic – www.smartlogic.com

Smartlogic are the producers of Semaphore, an enterprise semantic platform that adds advanced content classification capabilities to information management systems in order to structure data, providing the most compelling semantic applications for enterprise search, content management and business process automation.

Adopting a semantic approach to your information management strategy improves the accuracy and efficacy of information intensive tasks such as applying metadata and finding information, as well as enabling content integration across disparate sources. This combination delivers the highest return on an organisations information assets.

· Media companies use Semaphore to improve the quality of their information feeds, boosting distribution, readership & subscriptions
· Government authorities use Semaphore to tag information according to their standards, for compliance, intelligence processing & citizen self-service
· Healthcare companies use Semaphore to boost the level of self-service and improve the quality of critical health information they provide to patients
· Investment banks use Semaphore to consolidate their information costs, better promote their primary research and automate information compliance.
· Online directories use Semaphore to increase their advertising revenues
· Corporate intranets & websites use Semaphore to boost their use and maximise their return on information assets.
· Information managers use Semaphore to manage their taxonomies and ontologies, classification schemes and records retention policies.
