(Cambridge, UK and Boston, USA – March 31, 2015) Linguamatics announces the latest release of its award-winning natural language processing (NLP)-based text mining and analytics platform I2E. I2E 4.3’s Connected Data Technology uses an innovative federated text mining architecture, allowing information extraction from multiple data sources at once.
Textual data is heterogeneous in format and often exists in silos spread across multiple locations. Instead of having to run many text mining queries separately across disparate data sources, I2E’s Connected Data Technology allows users to run a single query simultaneously over multiple data sources whether they are located locally, on Linguamatics’ cloud-based I2E OnDemand platform, or on third party servers elsewhere in the cloud. Results are merged together as a single results set that is sorted and clustered, ready for analysis. The technology allows users to get more comprehensive answers to their business critical questions by extracting, synthesizing and connecting all the relevant knowledge from each data source for faster analysis, leading to better decision support and increased speed to actionable insight.
Jason Stamper, Analyst at 451 Research, comments "The federated architecture I2E 4.3 uses is game-changing for knowledge driven industries like life sciences and healthcare. Access to data is a key part of their requirements for comprehensive results and this approach opens the door for organizations to get better results, faster and also allows third party providers of data to keep control of their content. I look forward to seeing how Linguamatics moves forward in the future and how this impacts their business.”
David Milward, Chief Technology Officer, Linguamatics says “Decisions need to be made based on the best possible evidence. Our vision was to enable this by allowing users to extract information from multiple data sources, wherever they were located and however they were structured. I2E 4.3 brings this vision to life allowing customers to connect and normalize data on-the-fly, exploiting data better to reduce risk and delay.”
I2E 4.3 will be showcased at the upcoming Linguamatics Spring Users Conference in Cambridge, UK on 13-15 April 2015.
