London, United Kingdom, September 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Smartlogic, a software company that specialises in Content Intelligence has been awarded KMWorld’s prestigious Trendsetter Award for the second consecutive year.
Smartlogic, the makers and developers of the Content Intelligence Platform 'Semaphore', was chosen over some heavyweight competition in the field of knowledge management, with its Semaphore software selected from over 800 entries to retain its sought–after position on the KMWorld 'Trend-Setting Product' List 2011.
According to the KMWorld judges, led by Hugh McKellar, editor-in-chief of KMWorld and final decision-maker, Semaphore was singled out for its unique component capabilities to analyse, classify and reveal content by offering ontology management, content classification, text mining and semantic analysis.
With a notably rigorous selection criteria, achieving a place on the Trend-Setting Product list is by no means easy. Each and every product chosen by the panel this year was expected to emphasise a shared understanding of knowledge management that McKellar describes as "an attitude [and] an approach to delivering the right information to the right people throughout the entire constituency chain, users and customers alike."
"For this year's list," he continues, "the judging panel of colleagues, analysts, system integrators and users evaluated more than 800 products. Although the products on the list cover a host of technology areas, they share one thing in common: Each has helped create, define, enhance or sustain a market."
Smartlogic's CEO Jeremy Bentley is delighted with the news: "We're extremely pleased to have been selected to receive such an accolade from KMWorld for the second year in a row. It confirms us as thought-leaders in the field of content intelligence and knowledge management and that is always inspiring. That Semaphore 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, receiving the Trend-Setting Product award demonstrates that the commitment made by our customers in Semaphore is resonated by a wider audience of our peers. This is a tremendous honour."
