Netlify acquires Gatsby

Netlify, a platform for modern web development, announced that it has acquired Gatsby Inc., providers of a cloud platform for web delivery and content orchestration, and creators of the open source framework Gatsby.

Gatsby first became known for its open source, frontend framework that featured a data layer and an ecosystem of content management system (CMS) plugins. On top of the framework, Gatsby built a cloud platform for building, deploying, and previewing large enterprise content sites.

To keep the power in the hands of developers and honor its deep roots in open source, Netlify says it is committed to being a good steward of the Gatsby open-source project and the maintainers will join the open source group together with the creators of frameworks like Solid JS and Eleventy.

Gatsby’s source plugin ecosystem, originally targeted primarily to content management systems, is also accessible to any data source that exposes an API (such as e-commerce systems like Shopify), enabling teams to adopt composable architectures without having to write glue code. The company has been working closely with partners and enterprise customers to deliver the new Valhalla Content Hub, which builds upon their data layer and delivers a hosted, fault-tolerant, edge-first GraphQL API.

Lexalytics expands NLP capabilities across foreign languages

Lexalytics, an InMoment company and provider of AI-based, natural language processing (NLP) technology, announced it has improved accuracy and expanded NLP capabilities for 11 non-English languages. Now global brands and businesses can analyze unstructured data natively and benefit from full-featured text analytics to better understand their customers and make more informed decisions across 31 total languages.

While some companies offer a range of NLP features in languages other than English, few cover the sheer number that Lexalytics supports. Many rely on machine translation before processing which can decrease the accuracy of the analysis. Because Lexalytics processes text data in its native language, it can take into account specific nuances and complexities of that language, and better understand the meaning and context of the text.

Lexalytics has expanded feature coverage to include entities, themes, summarization, sentiment (at the document and item level), categorization, and part-of-speech tagging for the following 11 languages: Arabic, Danish, Finnish, Hebrew, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese. Lexalytics continues to offer full-featured support for an additional 20 languages. These expanded language capabilities are available for customers of Lexalytics’ Salience, Semantria API, and Spotlight application, as well as InMoment’s XI Platform.
