Ontotext announced Ontotext Platform 3.4 for better search and aggregation in knowledge graphs. Key to the Ontotext Platform is the declarative approach for access and management of large-scale knowledge graphs (KG). This allows engineering teams to define specific GraphQL interfaces to read and write data over parts of a knowledge graph and let the Platform implement an efficient translation of GraphQL to SPARQL.
Ontotext Platform 3.4 combines GraphDB, Elasticsearch and GraphQL by enabling the definition, automatic synchronization and querying of indices to boost the performance of specific queries. The Workbench front-end tool of the Platform features a new generic search interface for KG exploration and navigation. The new version of the Semantic Object service delivers better performance to execute big and data-intensive GraphQL queries on top of GraphDB.
The new Semantic Search Service enables software engineers to easily accomplish some of the capabilities over a knowledge graph that are most required by SMEs such as Full-text Search (FTS), Auto-complete/typeahead (related concepts and controlled vocabulary), Auto-suggest (related keywords and phrases), Faceted search, complex dashboards using different statistical and/or bucket aggregations, etc. The provided GraphQL endpoint will enable users not only to search in the data but also to retrieve the data for the result list directly from Elasticsearch.
Kentico Kontent, provider of a headless CMS, announced the launch of their new user interface and other improvements that help both global and regional teams in enterprise organizations to effectively manage their content. The streamlined user interface and other updates create an authoring environment that frees enterprise content teams to execute their content operations faster and with a minimal learning curve.
The Kontent team has also released their Collections feature that lets enterprises manage all their content in a single repository while maintaining control over which users can access each type of content. Using this new feature, teams can share content items across departments, websites, and experiences to ensure consistency and eliminate error-prone duplication that reduces efficiency and frustrates many enterprise content teams.
Software AG announced new innovations of its webMethods platform for APIs, Integration and Microservices. With this release, companies can simplify and accelerate their digital transformation initiatives while also speeding their adoption of cloud. The latest updates to webMethods include:
- To simplify cloud adoption, Software AG has added AI and ML-assisted smart mapping. Now users are given suggested mappings based on the combined best practices across the platform, reducing the effort of building integrations.
- A new online community gives partners and users the opportunity to share cloud connectors as well as integration templates, or “recipes,” to build their projects faster and with fewer errors.
- Democratize and speed development and integration of data and services for use in applications with a new graphical flow editor for power users, as well as a drag and drop UI for business users (multi-persona interface).
- Enhancements to develop productivity with improved DevOps capabilities including open APIs for all API Management and Microservices deployment functionality, containerized runtimes, helm charts, and CI/CD samples to simplify update rollout.
- Eliminate the complexity of managing business application with webMethods AppMesh that ties together its API Management and Microservices platforms to bring application-level visibility and control.
Collabware, a provider of information governance automation software, announced the release of three distinct products under the Collabspace brand. The content management cloud service has segmented into tiers to provide focused and advanced features for secure archiving, accurate search, and compliant records management; named: Collabspace ARCHIVE, Collabspace DISCOVERY, and Collabspace CONTINUUM. Collabspace connects to and streams all content sources together within a data lake archive to bring control and visibility to an organization’s structured and unstructured data assets.
- Collabspace ARCHIVE supports cross-system data access, auditing, recovery, and search. Electronic files and email content are transparently and automatically archived into a data lake while keeping content fully available and searchable.
- Collabspace DISCOVERY automatically indexes all data to enable search capabilities, also revealing dark and hidden data, also useful for processing Freedom of Information (FOI) or General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requests.
- Collabspace CONTINUUM automates records activities to meet your legislative and regulatory compliance requirements. Files are also auto-categorized to a file plan so proper retention policies can be applied.
Collabspace pricing starts from $600 per compute segment, per month and is billed annually (with volume discounts available). One compute segment equates to 1TB of data (approximately 5 million items @ 200KB each).
