The integrated solution from Mondeca and TEMIS is designed to: manage multilingual thesauri and taxonomies in order to share common vocabularies, organize content, and facilitate searches; federate content around business-specific reference systems and knowledge bases; and analyze internal and external sources in order to: extract knowledge to feed the business-specific reference systems and index these reference systems, in either semi-automatic or automatic mode for effective content searches.
The solution complies with the Semantic Web standards (XML, OWL, RDF, Topic Maps) and can be integrated with document management tools and search engines using its Java API and Web Services. Under the terms of the alliance, the joint solution will be marketed by Mondeca and all of TEMIS' international subsidiaries.
