  • The financial sector has its own set of special needs when it comes to managing dataand information. Driven by large amounts of information, the need for quick access todata, privately and securely, financial institutions need to be able to make decisionsquickly, to allocate resources and most of all, to please customers and maximizeshareholder value.Semantic technology can apply the same standards inside the organization to not onlymake data and information easy to find and share, but also extend the technology tohelp better manage relationships with customers and take advantage of the valuableinformation about the company available outside the firewall. Semantic intelligence isable to find and identify information that allows financial institutions to minimize theirexposure to risks, and it provides early identification and analysis of consumersentiment, market trends and competitor information—and it uncovers this data notonly from within an organization’s network, but also from the most unstructuredcorners of the Web.
