Boston, Ma (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
Cambridge Semantics today announced the company has been named to Information Management’s “40 Vendors We’re Watching” list for 2012. Recognized for its approach to unified information access, Cambridge Semantics was one of 10 companies included in the data integration and data governance category.
Now in its third year, the Information Management “40 Vendors We’re Watching” list recognizes vendors that deliver technologies and offer practical solutions to IT managers who are tasked with exploiting new opportunities for their organizations. Vendors are chosen by the magazine's editors with the help of a dozen leading IT professional firms and analysts. The editors extensively research each organization’s products and sales—as well as consider overall IT buying trends and technology adoption rates—to pick 40 companies out of more than 100 nominees.

“Cambridge Semantics is a newcomer to our annual list of up-and-coming vendor companies that are transforming the information management industry. Their Semantic Web-based open platform integrates business intelligence, data integration, and data governance to help end users turn multiple data sources into better business decisions in areas like compliance information management, IT asset management and ESB model management,” noted Julie Langenkamp-Muenkel, Editor-in-Chief of Information Management.
Enterprises face an increasing need to rapidly discover, understand, combine, and act on data from diverse sources both from within and across organizational boundaries. Cambridge Semantics provides an open platform, Anzo, for building Unified Information Applications that can leverage those sources. By giving end users better understanding and better access to their data, Anzo can help organizations bring any data together – structured or unstructured – to solve specific business problems. This approach is markedly different that traditional data management approaches and is made only possible by the innate flexibility of Semantic Web technology.
“The Web is a lot of things corporate IT systems are not. Any individual can access any kind of information at any time—videos, documents, tables, emails, blog posts, and customer profiles,” said Cambridge Semantics Co-Founder Lee Feigenbaum. “We are operating in a new world of unified information applications in which all data is interlinked and available at the click of a button to everyday business people. With Anzo, we can harness the power of that data and bring the flexibility of the Web to all corporate IT systems.”
