Nov 18, 2005

Siderean Software, provider of Seamark Navigator, an enterprise content navigation solution, has announced a product and services solution for extracting and aligning metadata from large amounts of unstructured and structured data based on the IBM Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA). The new Seamark Metadata Assembly Process Platform (MAPP) is designed to improve digital content navigation capabilities by expanding and enriching available metadata so Seamark Navigator can present a more accurate scope of available content and context for accessing information.

Seamark Navigator offers a harvesting back-end for accessing and generating metadata prior to loading it into its store. Seamark MAPP can semantically align acquired metadata through a process framework that offers enterprise scale. Seamark MAPP is a flexible framework for generating and analyzing metadata from diverse sources including file systems, content management solutions, databases, Web pages, RSS feeds, and blogs. Customers with a large volume of these kinds of unstructured assets can use Seamark MAPP to organize information to deliver navigational applications in many applicable business domains including market and competitive intelligence, 360° customer views, and risk management. Seamark MAPP is expected to be generally available before the end of the year.
