Pingar API for managing unstructured data management receives accolades just one year after commercialization
SUNNYVALE, CA – February 23, 2012 – Pingar, a leading provider of unstructured data management solutions, today announced KMWorld magazine has named Pingar to their annual list of 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management. The complete list, compiled by Knowledge Management practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors, customers and colleagues will be available at www.kmworld.com on March 1, 2012.
Hugh McKellar, editor in chief of KMWorld, says strategies for managing unstructured data have emerged as a key element in successful information management programs.
“The challenge of extracting knowledge from what can easily be millions of unstructured files is a rapidly emerging concern for information managers across industry sectors. Pingar makes our list this year as they demonstrate a commitment to continued innovation in developing practical solutions to manage unstructured data based on their ongoing investments in research,” Mr. McKellar continues.
The Pingar API works seamlessly with existing enterprise content management systems to automatically add contextually relevant metadata to unstructured files. This data improves ECM systems’ ability to extract, search, summarize, sanitize and share enterprise information. Pingar has recently commenced two new research efforts to accelerate the development of new versions of Pingar’s API. In partnership with Hong Kong Polytechnic University, new research will support further development of the Chinese Language API. Separately, Pingar is partnering with University of Waikato to conduct research to automatically create business information taxonomies.
Pingar CEO Peter Wren-Hilton says since the original research was commercialized in March of 2011, enterprises are rapidly developing solutions to specific business processes and workflow problems using the Pingar API.
“Most enterprise search engines need to use metadata to find and identify documents in file shares or document management systems such as SharePoint, SAP or Oracle. Pingar can look at unstructured files, extract and add metadata to ensure these systems can discover and analyze their content and make sense of the information,” Mr. Wren-Hilton concludes.
Because Pingar was developed using advanced natural language processing, data mining and text analytics techniques and the components are available in many languages, business analysts and other information workers can now unlock and manage previously inaccessible stores of data.
