Why Read This Report

Semantic technology has been incubating for the past 10 years, but most application development professionals view it with skepticism or outright distrust, believing that the dream of semantic technology is impractical in a time of stretched budgets and delayed technology road maps. Yet during the past 18 months, major changes have occurred in the application of semantic technology to real business problems. By dropping preconceptions about semantic technology, innovative application development professionals can exploit these advances to build insightful, innovative strategies for information use. Semantic technology can genuinely enhance your organization's ability to find, integrate, and store information. The time has come for application development professionals to build a pragmatic strategy for slowly integrating this new way of thinking into those projects where information provides the greatest value.
