Modena, 22 February 2007 – Expert System, leading provider of semantic intelligence software to discover, classify, and understand information contained in unstructured text, has been selected as one of the “100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management” by KMWorld magazine.

“If there is a single trait shared by the companies listed below, it is their determination to treat their entire constituency chain, from top to bottom, with respect and without hubris. Clearly, attitude alone doesn’t warrant inclusion on the list, attitude must be accompanied by elegance in the design and implementation of their software.” explained Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor in chief.

“Expert System gained a place in the list for the uniqueness of the semantic technology on which it based a complete offering of products for knowledge management tailored for the specific business needs and flexibility of the clients” concluded McKellar.

To extend the seventh edition of the list, KMWorld’s editors worked with colleagues, KM professionals, researchers, analysts, vendors and clients, with the aim of rousing interest and debates regarding the most innovative applications and services for knowledge management.

Marco Varone, CTO of Expert System S.p.A. comments: “We are very satisfied that a trade journal as important as KMWorld has considered Expert System one of the most important Knowledge Management companies in the world. It is a prestigious acknowledgment which is, of course, a great achievement for us. Our ability to innovate and create value, integrating with our clients in a joint process to reach quality results is starting to be recognized at an international level.”

The Cogito® applications developed by Expert System represent the evolution of the most traditional tools for KM and for the management of any textual document. The difference with traditional systems is Expert System’s semantic approach which enables to both understand, and not to try to guess, the meaning of words and to identify the correlations between concepts providing the base for a more effective valorization of intellectual capital and a better utilization of all strategic knowledge.
