– Semantic Alfresco: Integration of Expert System’s Cogito semantic technology with BPER Group’s Alfresco platform for strategic information management
Expert System (EXSY.MI), the leader in semantic technology for the effective management of unstructured information, and CASTGroup, a leading systems integrator, today announced their collaboration for helping the Italian banking leader BPER Group and its open source, enterprise content management Alfresco platform more effectively manage the organization’s strategic information.
Integrated in the Alfresco platform, Expert System’s Cogito semantic technology ensures the effortless retrieval of business content thanks to customized classification and extraction of the most important elements of every document contained in the company’s knowledge base.
For the BPER Group solution, the CASTGroup implemented Cogito semantic intelligence to enable more efficient, rapid and accurate access to documents through enriched and expanded search options that allow users to instantly find all the information they need. After first analyzing and interpreting the precise meaning of all content in the indexing phase, Cogito automatically creates categories and entities and identifies key phrases and relations in content.
By understanding the meaning of words in the context of Gruppo BPER’s content, the system is able to distinguish between the different meanings of the term “account”: “The explanation does not account for” “Withdrawal from account #1234”
Marcello Pellacani, VP Strategic Partnerships, Expert System, commented: “The collaboration with CASTGroup for the integration of Cogito in the Alfresco platform has achieved great results and positions Expert System semantic technology as an essential element of an innovative business solution.”
“We’re excited to work with Expert System on this innovative solution,” said Carlo Baraldi, Director, CASTGroup. “This collaboration brings a great opportunity for the CASTGroup to expand our reach into new markets and territories.”
