September 1, 2010 – Sean Martin, CTO of Cambridge Semantics, was recently interviewed on his views of integration.

As reported in ITBusiness Edge’s article, “Integration Critical Component of Semantic Technologies“, his Massachusetts-based company has developed a semantic middleware stack, complete with ESB. Discussed in the interview is the often overlooked, un-managed, and un-integrated spreadsheet data.

Although not often talked about, Martin opened up and said that integration is central to any semantic solution.                                 

“Why the integration angle is still a mystery when reading about semantics is still unclear, especially when applying semantic solutions to the enterprise. Semantics can affect enterprise integration and Cambridge Semantics has a unique way of applying it.”

This sounds promising and more and more the veil is being lifted about how semantics might be applied to more enterprise problems.
