1 June 2016

News item - Tellura and SWC announce strategic partnership


We are pleased to announce a strategic partnership with The Semantic Web Company (SWC). Headquartered in Vienna, SWC is a leading technology provider in the semantic web space, with world-leading products such as PoolParty allowing organisations to build, mine and discover information across structured and unstructured data.

Enterprises face new challenges in the field of data-, information- and knowledge management. SWC provides powerful solutions based on semantic (web) and linked (open) data standards and technologies to realise web-based portals and tools for the efficient management of growing amounts of information and data to create and thereby provide knowledge.

To this compelling technology offering, Tellura brings the insight and expertise of taxonomists, ontologists and content architects with decades of experience across industry and the public sector.

We have used PoolParty to help organisations to design and build high-quality taxonomies and content models for the modern world of discoverable, re-usable content.

Recognising that it is not enough just to implement a system, Tellura specialises in helping businesses to develop the standards, service management and governance processes that make effective use of taxonomies in creating, classifying, discovering and re-using content.

This global education provider has been engaging with the issues involved in moving from traditional paper publishing to dynamic digital-first channel-based publishing. This work involved the implementation of a taxonomy management system together with a wide range of enterprise controlled vocabularies, and the early work to create an object-based content architecture in which content classified with taxonomies could form a knowledge network of semantically aligned resources.
