A win for “content intelligence”--Smartlogic acquires SchemaLogic
Smartlogic has acquired Seattle-based SchemaLogic, a transaction Smartlogic says expands its U.S. presence and market focus in the content intelligence market.
Smartlogic explains that content intelligence complements an organization's investments in business intelligence, content management and enterprise search solutions, providing effective, rapid and accurate control of, and access to, unstructured content. Smartlogic's software endows these systems with semantic capabilities, such as taxonomy management, automatic classification and contextual navigation, so that organizations can better find, organize, process, monetize, control and govern unstructured content.
Semaphore, Smartlogic’s flagship offering, is said to deliver significantly improved search results and features an intuitive navigation of content that enables major commercial and productivity gains. Semaphore also delivers rich metadata that helps information platforms provide much greater control over content as well as increased reuse and repurposing of digital assets.
Smartlogic says the addition of SchemaServer to the Semaphore platform adds incremental functionality and extends the choice of solutions for both Smartlogic and SchemaLogic customers and prospects. Both Smartlogic and SchemaLogic are Microsoft Gold ISV partners, and the combination will add to Semaphore's already strong SharePoint capability of automatic classification ontology and contextual navigation support.
