They say data is the “oil” of the 21st century – raw material that, when extracted, refined, and “manufactured” into information products and analytic insights–will drive our economy to new heights.

It follows, then, that information products companies need to think about what they do in the same way that manufacturers of tangible goods do: as a process that requires a flow of inputs, a manufacturing plant, and a delivery system. And data products manufacturers must make this data supply chain as efficient, cost-effective, reliable, and flexible as possible.

This is where Connotate comes in, specifically for companies seeking to make website content part of their data supply chain so they can turn it into revenue streams and analytic insights. Our patented technology has been specifically built to ensure efficient harvesting, structuring, and delivery of this content, at high scale. Every day, industry leaders like Thomson Reuters, McGraw-Hill, the Associated Press and more deploy millions of Connotate extraction Agents, bring back terabytes of clean, structured Web data, and transform it into products and analytic insights driving billions to their collective bottom lines.

In other words, we’re at the heart of their data supply chain.

Our industry-leading platform reduces the need for expensive programming talent, offers change detection and in-line transformations to cut down on post-processing requirements, and improves production efficiencies via automated extraction scheduling. (it was recently named a KMWorld “Trend-Setting Product – for the 9th time). Our custom data pipes provide a reliable flow of clean website content for companies that just want data. We also offer FetchCheck, which automates pre-employment background check, and AdStats, which collects and aggregates online ad statistics.
