Deepnote, an early-stage startup backed by Accel and Index Ventures, launched version 1.0, opening up to the general availability of collaborative data science notebooks to data teams. Data team efficacy relies on the process of access to, exploration of, and collaboration around data—for example, when an organization needs to make a data-informed decision, it will rely on data teams to explore datasets and share insights that lead to action. This process is siloed within a single department, findings are inconsistent, and insights quickly become out of date. Deepnote makes data collaboration a reality improving three pain points of traditional data science notebooks:
- Collaboration: Sharing analysis and collaboration is as easy as sending a link because everything is hosted in a fully-managed cloud environment. Analysis is done in real-time with multiplayer mode if needed. And everything is organized and hosted in a single place.
- Connectivity: With dozens of native integrations to tools in the modern data stack—Snowflake, BigQuery, Postgres, S3, GitHub—data teams can seamlessly connect to the tools they’re already using.
- Productivity: Underserved data analysts and scientists are now equipped with productivity features—reproducibility, autocomplete, scheduling, version control—to do better work in less time.
Version 5.0 of Oxygen Content Fusion is the latest release for the collaboration platform that is designed to improve any documentation review process. Some of the most interesting features added in the latest version include a new Search side-view that enables searches throughout all files in a task, various user interface improvements that offer Content Fusion a more modern look and feel, and the ability to mention other collaborators in review comments.
The embedded visual editor that is based upon Oxygen XML Web Author technology was updated to include the new features and improvements that were added in the recently released Web Author 24.1.0. Some of its most important additions include performance optimizations for the concurrent editing feature and a new Find/Replace tab that makes it possible to see all search results without needing to scroll through the document.
Also, it is now possible for technical writers to open files sent for review directly from Oxygen XML Editor/Author to make changes or to apply a transformation scenario on the DITA map. To this end, new actions were introduced in Oxygen XML Editor/Author that enable you to open task files or the context map specified for a task.
Ontotext, an enterprise knowledge graph technology and semantic database engine provider, announced that Integral Venture Partners (Integral), a capital investment firm, announced this week that an Integral–led investment consortium has entered into a definitive agreement with our mother company Sirma Group Holding, to acquire Ontotext as a global supplier of a deep-tech enterprise software, operating in the graph databases space and the Artificial Intelligence market. The Integral-led international investment consortium also includes PortfoLion Capital Partners, the venture capital and private equity arm of OTP Bank, and Carpathian Partners, a specialized technology-focused investment platform based in London. The Consortium’s investment in excess of €30 million will be structured as a combination of a capital increase and a secondary share purchase. The transaction is not subject to any regulatory approvals and is expected to close by August 2022.
Supported by new capital, Ontotext will accelerate its international expansion and go-to-market operations, focusing on the US market. We will invest in further development of our vertical product stack — end-to-end solutions for specific industries starting with Life Sciences and Financial Services. Last but not least, we will further strengthen our position as global provider of knowledge graph technology.
