PRESS INDEX further enhances its automated press clipping process by embedding TEMIS and Mondeca software solutions.

(PresseBox) ( Paris, )
PRESS INDEX, leaders in press clipping technology, today announced they have signed strategic partnerships with TEMIS, Europe’s leading Text Mining solutions provider, and Mondeca, a software vendor specializing in knowledge and content organization solutions, to further automate its media watch and content aggregation.

PRESS INDEX process an increasing volume of information whilst meeting the highest standards of accuracy and quality, all characteristic of the Group’s offering. PRESS INDEX has turned to two prominent specialists in the information-processing market, TEMIS and Mondeca, for deployment of its relevance analysis engine: the MAP Project.

The new platform in place uses a process organized into four steps:

- Information gathering adapted to the medium monitored (scan, read, audio, video etc.);
- Knowledge extraction and indexing with TEMIS’s Insight Discoverer™ Extractor, combined with a Competitive Intelligence Skill Cartridge™: Insight Discoverer™ Extractor automatically analyzes texts in 20 languages while Competitive Intelligence Skill Cartridge™ extracts strategic economic, stock-market and corporate information;
- Extracted data capitalization in a knowledge base with Mondeca’s Intelligent Topic Manager, which uses a mediation layer to synthesize the collected information and display it in multiple forms for users: by company, people, events, dates etc.;
- Distribution to clients in multiple custom formats (index navigation; company, product or market summaries; business or financial event tracking in an industry or specific firm).

“To deal with the extraordinary growth in the volume of information available, it’s now essential to go from words to ideas to ensure that the press clippings we deliver to our clients are relevant. Making sense of text data entails the use of bleeding-edge technology that has to be mastered. We consider it only natural and more efficient to do this in close cooperation with the creators of those techniques. This innovative approach will enable PRESS INDEX to improve the productivity of its teams with an optimal guarantee of process reliability", said PRESS INDEX CEO Manuel Zebeida.

“This decision confirms that TEMIS solutions meet the needs of content aggregators faced with the problem of fine-combing large volumes of multilingual information,” added Vincent Nibart, Strategic Account Manager, TEMIS Publishing & Media Division.

“Once again Mondeca demonstrates that its solutions meet the demand for refined information organization and capitalization to provide efficient access to online knowledge and content", said Mondeca CEO Jean Delahousse.

The platform, whose value and effectiveness have undergone several months of testing, will very soon go into operation. It is based on the XML standard for data exchange and web-based semantic standards for knowledge representation (RDF, OWL); the solution is readily adaptable to new languages and topics.

PRESS INDEX clients will be able to access this new high value-added feature through PRESS INDEX’s web portal and soon by PDA and phone.
