Rosette® delivers multilingual entity extraction into the Anzo software suite for global organizations to better evaluate the larger story of its data

Cambridge Semantics, the leading provider of Unified Information Access (UIA) solutions for enterprises, today announced it has incorporated the Rosette® platform from Basis Technology to provide its global customers with multilingual entity extraction in 16 languages, with more to come.

Rosette enables cross-lingual name matching and entity extraction -- such as people, places and organizations -- to provide a more robust framework for establishing the importance of content, and the relationship between disparate pieces of data.

Cambridge Semantics selected Basis Technology to help its multi-national pharma and financial customers extract valuable business terms and entities from “Big Text” (large volumes of unstructured content) in multiple languages through its award-winning Anzo software suite. In pharma, data such as organization names, job titles, nationalities and dates can be better extracted in support of competitive intelligence while in the financial industry, monetary amounts, personal ID numbers, name variations, locations can be better extracted for use in financial forensic investigations.

Anzo addresses a variety of enterprise data management and end-user data consumption challenges, from risk analysis to fraud surveillance, financial compliance to competitive intelligence. Based on semantic technology, Anzo enables enterprise customers to rapidly discover, understand, combine and act on data from diverse sources both from within and across organizational boundaries.

“Our customized Smart Data solutions help organizations reuse and link together disparate data sets across the entire enterprise,” said Lee Feigenbaum, co-founder and vice president of marketing and technology for Cambridge Semantics. “We look forward to leveraging Basis Technology within the Anzo software suite to link together data across multiple languages to provide our global customers with an even broader perspective.”

“Rosette’s robust, highly scalable entity extraction components are ideally suited to integrate within the Anzo platform,” said Carl Hoffman, CEO of Basis Technology. “By incorporating Rosette, Cambridge Semantics will continue to deliver on the promise of Unified Information Access: using data to make rapid, informed, high-quality decisions across a global enterprise.”
