London, United Kingdom, March 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Smartlogic, leaders in taxonomy management and automatic classification and makers of Semaphore, the enterprise semantic platform, was recently selected from among hundreds of entries to become one of 2011's "100 Companies That Matter to Knowledge Management," announce KMWorld Magazine.
Smartlogic’s Semaphore software was singled out for its unique three component capabilities to analyze, classify and reveal content by offering ontology management, content classification and search enhancement.
KMWorld, as a leading information provider serving the knowledge management systems market, and with an online and in-print readership made up from over 55,000 individuals in a wide variety of businesses and disciplines, is well placed to assemble such a list. The "100 Companies That Matter" selection panel represents a broad range of information management disciplines, comprising industry journalists, market and technology analysts, KM theoreticians and practitioners, system integrators, vendors, line-of-business managers and users.
The selection criteria recognizes companies based on the breadth and impact of their ability to meet specific customer needs while adding true value to the entire chain of constituencies.
“Limiting the list to 100 companies is an extraordinarily difficult task, and we could have very easily doubled its size,” said Hugh McKellar, Editor-in-Chief of KMWorld. “In addition, inclusion in previous years certainly didn't guarantee being on the list this time.”
Smartlogic's CEO Jeremy Bentley comments, "This is a tremendous honour. Smartlogic are delighted to have received such an accolade from KMWorld. It confirms us as thought-leaders in the field of information and knowledge management. That the Semaphore enterprise semantic platform, used by customers like NASA, RBS, NHS and others, meets the tough set of criteria set by the panel and can stand up to the stiff competition is validation in itself but more importantly, being selected as one of '100 Companies That Matter' demonstrates that the commitment made by our customers in Semaphore is resonated by a wider audience of our peers."
Smartlogic's Semaphore is used all over the world by hundreds of leading business enterprises. Applications such as Enterprise Search and Enterprise Content Management use Semaphore to deliver semantic search solutions to understand what content is about and to describe the connections between topics, entities and resources. Organisations use Semaphore with SharePoint, Fast, Google Search Appliance, Solr, Documentum, OpenText and numerous other platforms to deliver the most compelling web sites and to increase business productivity.
