Text processing crosses many genres, fields and occupations. The need for data mining knows no borders. Maana recently announced a new patent on its semantic search technology that takes data mining into the future. Forbes brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Maana Reinvents Data Mining For The Digital Age.”

Data mining is an established data processing term that refers to extracting new value out of existing data that wasn’t obvious from the original data. What Maana brings to the data mining story is its ability to leverage semantic graph technology to deliver a more holistic approach that targets – and then surpasses – the goals of traditional data mining.

Maana bills its product as an “analytics platform that operationalizes big data insights into line‐of‐business applications.” The platform is able to take the results of its big data analysis and bring them to users.
