Expert System today announced that it has been awarded a framework agreement by Buying Solutions for Digital Continuity. The Digital Continuity framework agreement which has been developed and delivered in collaboration with The National Archives, consists of six Lots which provide a range of commercial services and solutions geared to ensure long term access to, and improved usability of, digital information. Expert System will provide solutions for Lot 5, eDiscovery Solutions, for the mining of unstructured information.
Digital Continuity is the ability to use your information in the way that you need, for as long as you need. Usable information is essential if the public sector is to operate transparently, legally and accountably. The National Archives has a digital continuity service that the public sector can use to manage digital continuity. The service is available from www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/digitalcontinuity.
“We are proud to be included in this community of digital continuity suppliers,” commented Luca Scagliarini, VP and Partner, Sales and Business Development, Expert System. “Being awarded this framework agreement validates our approach of providing technology that enables organizations to quickly and accurately find, retrieve, search and protect its digital assets.”
Expert System’s Cogito semantic platform organizes and categorizes data intelligently, allowing users to search for, classify and order information, making the knowledge immediately and fully available. Cogito extends semantic search capabilities to all formats of information, including structured and unstructured data from both internal and external sources, and provides tools for normalizing and managing archives, systems for monitoring the web and extracting relevant information, automatic categorization and retrieval of information, concept search engines and natural language interfaces. By rapidly delivering the most relevant information, organizations can make more informed business decisions in real time.
The Digital Continuity framework agreement is valid for two years, with the option for two further one-year extensions.
