SMW+ makes it easy for your team to cope with knowledge-intensive processes and to exploit the implicit knowledge locked in unstructured wiki contents.


A little over a year ago, the Tribune Company launched its Topic Galleries,, the result of semantic technologies used, in great part, to generate a product.  Other Tribune products are “spinning off” the vocabularies and the underlying logic intelligently surfacing the content in the Galleries.  However, to date, the Topic Galleries provide the most comprehensive presentation of a discovery process intended, in part, to plumb the depths of Tribune content well beyond the limited topic coverag

Executive Summary

Challenged with limited personal time and virtually unlimited information sources, the knowledge worker of today is becoming less efficient. Finding what we need, in the right context at the right time is increasingly difficult with current methods in web or enterprise search. In this article I’ll outline some primary issues that we face and how we can resolve these issues with new approaches that use semantic technologies.  I’ll explain what semantic agents are, what they do and describe how they can help computers help us more effectively.


As noted in a previous post, the current set of methodologies employed in the day to day IT operations of a typical enterprise is poised for perhaps its most significant paradigm shift in several decades. This evolutionary shift is not the introduction of Semantic technology or standards per se, but rather the complete re-visioning of how IT works in the context of Semantic Interoperability. Semantic IT provides us with two crucial capabilities that we simply never had before:


I had an interesting conversation this week with a colleague regarding the relative lack of success with many current Knowledge Management Platforms / Systems. One of the first and most obvious problems is that there isn’t clear a set of expectations as to what constitutes Knowledge Management in contrast with Content Management and Collaboration. Add to this a blending of case and/or workflow management capabilities into the picture and it becomes perhaps even more confusing to determine just what type of a solution one needs or may be using. The end users find this confusing as well, which is why many of these systems are underutilized and the alleged ROI associated with them is never actually realized.
