Small business wins with big data

A recent US CIO article on the burgeoning phenomenon of Big Data, published in Reseller News, made much of the need for modern semantic search engines. There is a New Zealand-developed option, SYL Semantics, which is attracting overwhelming interest from both government and commercial interests, according to chief executive Sean Wilson.

He says that so far the technology has been delivered as an appliance but will soon be able to be fully embedded in a solution.

"We're talking to a large integrator about putting SYL into the cloud as we head to Version 2.0."There is a programme of work scheduled for the next six to eight months to deliver the new version."We are continuing to concentrate on scalability and enhanced features of functionality to natural language processing," Wilson says.

"The key is that SYL does things the enterprise expects. It is smart, practical and highly geared toward the enterprise."

He says enterprise search is valuable to any organisation, regardless of size. "It's about searching over all of your content respositories. SYL is a productivity tool, and it also saves on a tremendous amount of frustration for users.
