PARIS and NEW YORK, November 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions for the Enterprise, announced today that they have won a call for tender issued by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) with their award-winning Semantic Content Enrichment solution Luxid®.
The OECD provides its expertise, data and analysis to its 34 member governments and 100 other countries to help them support sustainable economic growth, boost employment and raise living standards. To fulfill its vision of increased relevance and global presence, the OECD has launched a Knowledge and Information Management (KIM) Program that establishes an integrated framework for managing and delivering information and improving its accessibility and presentation. The KIM framework is intended as the steward of the OECD's information lifecycle, with a universal knowledge referential at its core facilitating enhanced searching and findability, rationalized content re-use/repurposing processes, and supporting the organisation's Open Data and Linked Data initiatives.
In this context, the OECD has chosen TEMIS's flagship Luxid® Content Enrichment Platform to address all Semantic Enrichment stages of the KIM framework. Luxid® will help OECD to consistently enrich document metadata in alignment with its taxonomies and ontologies, providing a genuinely semantic integration layer across heterogeneous document storage and content management components. This semantic layer will both enable new search and browsing methods and improved relevance and accuracy of search results, as well as progressively build an integrated map of OECD knowledge.
"After careful evaluation, the OECD selected TEMIS Luxid® platform as the key technological component to support the transition from content to semantic information," said Simone Sergi, KIM Senior Program Manager, OECD.
"This mark of trust by OECD represents a new recognition of our ability to address challenges in international organisations. For TEMIS, this is a link between our know-how in the publishing domain and our industrial experience in information systems," said Fabien Gauthier, Sales Director, Enterprise, TEMIS.
Based on patented and award-winning Natural Language Processing technologies, Luxid® exploits off-the-shelf extractors called Skill Cartridges® to extract targeted information from unstructured content and semantically enrich it with domain-specific metadata. This enables professional publishers to efficiently package and deliver relevant information to their audience, and helps enterprises to intelligently archive, manage, analyze, discover and share increasing volumes of information.
The OECD is a global economic policy forum. It provides analysis and advice to its 34 member governments and other countries worldwide, promoting better policies for better lives.
TEMIS helps organisations structure, manage and exploit their unstructured information assets.
