SemTech 2011 Presents the Future of Information

Presentations from leading industry experts will explain semantics and the way businesses can adapt their information infrastructure to successfully propel their business forward on the Web.

New York, NY - May 11, 2011 - (a division of WebMediaBrands Inc., Nasdaq: WEBM) today announced sessions and case studies to be presented at the Semantic Technology Conference (#SemTech), the world's largest conference on the commercialization of semantic technologies, taking place June 5-9, 2011 at the San Francisco Hilton in Union Square, on the topic of the future of information.

"Information management is changing faster than people may realize," Tony Shaw, Program Chair for the SemTech 2011 educational agenda said. "Information is increasingly structured and modularized in much the same way that small, standard components are combined in a manufacturing process. The key is in the "semantics" - the description of the information that enables computer to find, understand and manage information in a "plug and play" fashion."

These dramatic changes have already started to influence media organizations in major ways, but are soon to hit every organization with external customer-facing applications as well as every internal business intelligence application. The SemTech 2011 agenda features sessions dedicated to these trends and new technologies and how businesses can take advantage of them, including:

Change the structure of your "content" to be more flexible across a range of applications

Find valuable information within your unstructured documents and content

Integrate your disparate internal data faster and more accurately

Make your enterprise and web-based search results more relevant

Identify important customer opinion and behavioral trends in real time

Case Studies from leading implementers will explain how its done:

The Library of Congress

Department of Defense

Federated Media Publishing;=4087

British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC)

Best Buy (the world’s third largest television network)
