Curb Your Big Data 'Content Sprawl' with Content Intelligence: Free Webinar from SMARTLOGIC & MARKLOGIC, WEDNESDAY, MAR 14, 2012

Join speakers Smartlogic’s Stuart Laurie and MarkLogic's Fernando Mesa for a free webinar on March 14th 2012, where they will discuss how to apply Content Intelligence to the problems of Big Data - datasets that grow so large that they become awkward to work with using on-hand database management tools - and the ensuing 'Content Sprawl' faced by enterprises, institutions and government departments today.

Entitled 'Smartlogic and MarkLogic: The Logical Combination to Analyse Big Data', the webinar will cover the following themes:

  •          The challenge with the exponential growth of Big Data that businesses face today and the business value to extracting facts and insights from Big Data
  •     What Content Intelligence solutions are and how to effectively use navigational taxonomies, ontologies and automated classification to extract facts and insights from your Big Data 
  •     A MarkLogic-Smartlogic live demo of "The Logical Solution" in action

According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), the premier global provider of market intelligence, an estimated 1.8 zettabytes of digital data was created and copied in 2011. This is equivalent to over 200 billion two-hour long high-definition movies, which would take 47 million years to be played back to back.

Together, Laurie and Mesa will be exploring ways in which a sprawling mass of raw enterprise content can be turned into actionable information by infusing it with Content Intelligence in order to derive business value, advocating that this attention should be top of mind for all CIOs wishing to improve on enterprise efficiency.

Smartlogic’s Semaphore Content Intelligent Platform extracts facts and insights from unstructured 'Big Data' giving organizations transparency into all content across the enterprise, irrespective of location and format, helping users pinpoint the most relevant information. Semaphore has a conceptual understanding of the underlying content and surrounds it with intelligence by enriching it with vocabularies and metadata so that it can be surfaced. Semaphore also augments the query by making it contextually rich and navigable resulting in unmatched precision and relevancy of results.
