Smartlogic Recognized as a Visionary in Gartner Magic Quadrant

Smartlogic’s world-class semantic platform Semaphore, has been positioned by Gartner, the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, as a Visionary in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Insight Engines.

Gartner defines Insight Engines in the following way:

“Insight Engines apply relevancy methods to describe, discover, organize and analyze data. This allows existing or synthesized information to be delivered proactively or interactively, and in the context of digital workers, customers or constituents at timely business moments.

Insight engines gather content from a broad spectrum of sources, including those relevant to the immediate needs of digital workers. They extend beyond enterprise search by providing the capability to engage with content and extract insights without touching the source of that content.

Natural language and rich context are used in such interactions, which will come to rely less on a search box and a button and more on proactivity over time.”
