Smartlogic's Toby Conrad to Speak at MarkLogic World 2014

SAN JOSE, CA - April 4, 2014 - Smartlogic's co-founder and senior vice president, Toby Conrad will be a keynote speaker at MarkLogic World's kickoff event in San Francisco on April 7.

Conrad's presentation will focus on how Semaphore, Smartlogic's content intelligence software platform, adds a semantic layer to MarkLogic implementations. "Semaphore's semantic capabilities lets users really leverage their content across platforms and applications," Conrad said. "Rich metadata adds the ability to dig into text and find business insights buried within it."

Smartlogic is a platinum sponsor of MarkLogic World Tour 2014 and will have representatives at each event to talk with MarkLogic users about how the two technologies work together. "The Smartlogic-MarkLogic partnership is a natural fit," said Jeremy Bentley, Smartlogic CEO. "Our software's auto-classification ability adds tags to content that help users make the most of MarkLogic's semantic capabilities."

Specifically, Conrad will talk about how Semaphore enables the rapid development of ontologies and performs semantic analysis to describe and extract information from content of all types and sources. Semaphore creates comprehensive and accurate resource descriptors and those feed MarkLogic's native semantic and search capabilities. Semaphore enriches the MarkLogic knowledge graph so that solutions based on it can be deployed far more rapidly - gaining agility with how enterprises use data and deliver the information users need to be more efficient and informed. He will also talk about how Smartlogic's customers are improving the flow of information across multiple systems, supporting improved analytics and combining Big Data from numerous sources to identify the most likely resolution to customer or product issues.

The theme of MarkLogic World is "reimagine," which Smartlogic exemplifies by helping enterprises reimagine how they can discover and distill the value from unstructured text of all types and stored across data silos.

MarkLogic World is a seven-city event that brings together MarkLogic's clients, partners and experts in the database world for training, hands on experience and networking. Smartlogic invites you to join them in San Francisco, Amsterdam, London, New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., or Baltimore to meet with Smartlogic's experts and hear how to develop a rich semantic layer to boost MarkLogic's native capabilities.

About Smartlogic
At Smartlogic, we process unstructured content to extract facts and identify the meaningful information it contains. We then create rich metadata - resource descriptors - that businesses use to audit content, secure sensitive information, drive workflows, improve findability and reveal relationships and patterns in the content with greater accuracy and ease than ever before. This enables organizations to unlock the value contained in their content for business decision support, content management and regulatory compliance. This semantic structure also allows enterprises to perform quantitative analysis on Big Data - by searching across structured and unstructured data simultaneously. The Smartlogic-Marklogic combination helps organizations discover new meaning in the disparate content disseminated across the organization by leveraging semantic technologies.

Smartlogic has offices in San Jose, CA; Washington, DC, Boston, MA and London. Please visit us at www.smartlogic.com

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With “smart” appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user’s habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps,...
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, will discuss the real...
I write and study often on the subject of digital transformation - the digital transformation of industries, markets, products, business models, etc. In brief, digital transformation is about the impact that collected and analyzed data can have when used to enhance business processes and workflows.
