Content analytics moves to the fore
OpenText announces it will bring content analytics capabilities to market for improved business productivity through a licensing agreement with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). The NRC offerings will be incorporated into OpenText's flagship Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Suite, with the first version expected to be available this spring.
OpenText reports its approach to content analytics addresses the discovery of answers to business questions through the use of semantic technologies such as natural language processing and sentiment analysis. Its collaboration with the NRC will enable more efficient data mining capability to, for example, locate entities names, product brands, geographic locations, currencies and ticker symbols, as well plus uncover facts such as financial statements, merger and acquisition announcements, etc., and then connect relationships between those entities and facts.
It further explains the software can search for pieces of text or metadata that cannot be specified in common search engines, and the results from those queries can be presented much more flexibly than would be possible using traditional business intelligence solutions.
