Smartlogic has announced the SharePoint version of its content intelligence solution, Semaphore. The new Semaphore for SharePoint 2013 augments SharePoint 2013 to improve the search experience and standardize metadata across the enterprise. The new Semaphore version also supports Microsoft’s Office 365, which adds equivalent functionality to the cloud-based solution.

CMS Critic brought this news to our attention in their article, “Smartlogic announce availability of Semaphore for SharePoint 2013 as well as support for Microsoft Office 365.” Adding more ontology-related web parts will result in  better contextual search and improved findability.

Improved findability is always a worthy goal. Access to data sources is important for comprehensive search results and true findability. Semantic technology provides another enhancement to search by using common terminology and natural language processing to make the query process much more user-friendly.
