December 13, 2010 – Digital Reasoning Systems Inc. has released their flagship solution for cloud-scale analytics in government and commercial markets – Synthesys v3.0.

BusinessWire brought this news to our attention in their article, “Digital Reasoning Announces Synthesys™ v3.0.” This recent advancement in achieving automated understanding of structured and unstructured data is very timely with the growth of data and the increasing demand for timely solutions. This need is met by Synthesys’ conversion of massive amounts of unstructured data.

“Synthesys 3.0 is the culmination of a decade of solving large scale data analytics problems for the intelligence community,” said Tim Estes, CEO and founder of Digital Reasoning Systems. “With this release we are bringing to the market unprecedented understanding of unstructured data in cloud-scale architectures with our integration of Hadoop and Cassandra.”

Interestingly, this is accomplished without the assistance of a taxonomy or ontology. They call it an “unbiased” approach. It seems like without the strong foundation of a taxonomy, the data would still have some of the disadvantages of  unstructured data.
