CAMBRIDGE, England and BOSTON, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Linguamatics, the market-leader in natural language processing (NLP)-based text mining and analytics, today announced that it has been named in KMWorld's list of "100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management." Now in its 14th year, the KMWorld 100 Companies That Matter list is compiled by KM practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors and their customers and colleagues. The annual list is a collaborative snapshot of the evolving and expanding knowledge management industry.
Linguamatics' agile NLP text mining software, I2E, provides rapid knowledge discovery from unstructured text. In this era of "Big Data", organizations face the challenge of filtering ever-increasing volumes of text information to gain actionable insights for key decision-making. Using I2E, knowledge can be extracted from a wide range of content sources such as scientific literature, patents, clinical trials data, electronic health records (EHRs), news feeds and proprietary content. This knowledge can then be used to answer high-value questions in real time.
"Linguamatics has proven to define the spirit of practical innovation by blending a best-in-breed natural language processing (NLP) text mining platform with a deep, fundamental commitment to customer success," says Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor-in-Chief.
