In the past, enormous amounts of IT resources were consumed in order to analyze and index large data volumes in high quality. Data mining and traditional business intelligence systems have been processing large amounts of structured data for quite some time now, such as data appearing in ERP systems and databases. However, in the field of unstructured data, Empolis Smart Information Management® is taking on a new pivotal role as a crossover technology. It facilitates the high-quality analysis of large quantities of unstructured data and the intelligent processing of information in a way that is easy on resources while also making the information useful for relevant business processes. Hence, Empolis Smart Information Management® makes “Business Intelligence on Text” a reality. Artificial intelligence, Case-based reasoning, semantic and language processing methodologies are applied with which relevant information is extracted from unstructured data streams and text, structure and context is identified, and connections between data, as well as their data sources, are established.

This enables organizations to optimize business-critical processes, in order to obtain well-founded decisions in extremely flexible and dynamic markets; to better understand and recognize emerging developments and issues, in order to be able to react correctly and in time; and to efficiently and reliably find the “needle in the haystack”—according to the Empolis motto “the right information, at the right time, to the right person, on the desired device.”

Many notable companies—such as ABB, Airbus, BMW, Bosch, Siemens and Vodafone—and public sector institutions rely on Empolis solutions, based on more than 25 years of industry and process experience.
