Software AG and Semio on Wednesday plan to announce an alliance to enable management of unstructured and structured data across the enterprise using XML technology.
Through the arrangement, Semio's categorization engine, SemioTagger, will be used with Software AG's Tamino server to categorize and store data contained in multiple data sources, according to the companies. The Tamino server coupled with Semio technology will provide customers with a way to organize and access corporate information at the individual level.
Reston, Va.-based Semio's technology identifies and extracts key concepts contained within vast amounts of unstructured text and links them to subjects, categories, and subcategories, based on business requirements. Data is represented in XML tags with associated metadata, which is stored in the Tamino server for simplified search and retrieval. San Mateo, Calif.-based Software AG's Tamino server is a native XML server for Internet database management.
Also, Cincinnati-based Cincom Systems on Tuesday announced the release of Socrates XML 1.2, an XML database that can integrate enterprise data to the Web. The database, designed for J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition)-based applications, enables reuse of existing data for new XML-based applications.
