ClearForest Corp. has announced the availability of ClearForest Release 5. The latest version of the content extraction and analysis suite extends the functionality of the company's unstructured data management applications with new relationship analysis tools, industry-specific solution modules, and enhanced database scalability.
The new Link Analysis is designed to enable users to find important, previously unknown implicit information within an organization's unstructured data sources. The Link Analysis query organizes links (associations) between entities (individuals, organizations) that are not present in individual documents. Another new feature of this release is the Fact Viewer that allows for the search and retrieval of events and relationships without the constraint of explicit keywords. A financial analyst could ask for a list of "all biotech companies that merged or were acquired in the past 6 months," even though the words "merged," "acquired" or "acquisition" might not appear in the source text.
ClearForest is also delivering four new Discovery Modules designed to provide cost-saving, out-of-the-box text patterns and relationships for Life Sciences, Counter-Intelligence, Intellectual Property, and Financial Services applications. These Discovery Modules are designed to provide faster return on investment (ROI) with rapid implementations using packaged applications, modular deployments, and plug-in integrations. The domain expertise incorporated into these Discovery Modules guides the automatic tagging and discovery of relevant textual elements to each specific domain or industry. In addition, users and organizations can leverage their own expertise by extending Discovery Modules for enhanced, focused and unparalleled tagging. ClearForest has also extended the platform internationalization with the ability to tag and analyze Arabic and Hebrew in addition to primary Western European languages.
