Expert System, leading provider of semantic software that searches, discovers, classifies and interprets text information, today announces its inclusion in a Gilbane Group report highlighting the evolving landscape of semantic software technologies for the enterprise. Gilbane Group, a division of Outsell, Inc. published the report, “Semantic Software Technologies: Landscape of High Value Applications for the Enterprise,” which focuses on the growing need for semantic software in the enterprise, especially as the power behind semantics becomes clearer, and the data search, sharing and analysis benefits are realized.


With a robust natural language interface (NLI) and a large semantic library, Gilbane Group positions Expert System as a company known for its semantic solutions in various markets, including life sciences, manufacturing, government, publishing, energy and financial. According to the recent study, semantic technology adoption has increased across several industries; however, life sciences and publishing are the two main areas of growth.

“Expert System’s technological maturity is unique, as evidenced by over 20 years of delivering linguistic tools and products that help enterprises extract more meaning from all of their data,” said Lynda Moulton, Senior Analyst and Consultant at Gilbane Group, a division of Outsell, Inc. “As electronic data increases, companies will depend on semantic software to mine their valuable digital assets, then analyze and categorize information so the right people can make more informed business decisions.”

Built on its flagship COGITO® semantic platform, Expert System’s solutions enable enterprises to execute accurate searches in the most efficient manner. COGITO extends semantic search capabilities to all formats of information, including structured and unstructured data, from internal sources, such as networks and files across multiple offices; and external sources, such as blogs, message boards and comments. By rapidly delivering the most relevant information, companies can make more informed business decisions, in real time.

“Semantic technologies will be crucial for enterprises as data continues to grow and live in various formats across sources,” said Brooke Aker, CEO of Expert System USA. “Businesses need more than basic search that only delivers keyword search results. Expert System has helped companies discover the true meaning of their data for more than 20 years and we will continue to enhance enterprises’ content management strategies—especially for industries facing so much content like life sciences and publishing.”

Gilbane Group reports that publishing, media and life science industries are quick to adopt semantic technologies because of the massive amounts of data and sources. In addition, complex terminology and an increase in user-generated comment opportunities added to the growing data-sets for these industries to manage. Semantic technology is able to mine this information accurately and efficiently to eliminate inconsistencies and save users time.

The report will be available on the Gilbane Group Website in September but you can already request it by filling out this form
