IN-DEPTH: Alta Plana's Seth Grimes on how text analytics is expected to shape up in 2010
 
No single solution provider dominates text analytics. According to Seth Grimes, president, Alta Plana, no single provider dominates any significant text-analytics market segment.
 
"This is good news for current and prospective users," recently wrote Grimes, industry expert and Conference Chair at the upcoming 6th Annual Text Analytics Summit
 
In order to know more about the latest trends and issues, Text Analytics News' Ritesh Gupta recently spoke to Grimes. Excerpts: 
 
Publishers, media portals, social-network and forum sites: they all realise that intelligent content tagging and conceptual search and semantic integration -- capabilities supported by text analytics and related semantic technologies -- are key to information findability, to a rich and satisfying user experience.  Last year, you told me the use of these technologies is on a fast track, a major growth area for text analytics and semantics. How do you assess the situation as of today?
 
Seth Grimes:
There's strong uptake on the publishing side, where organisations seek to make their information more findable and usable (and profitable), and even stronger uptake on the consumer side, where organisations analyse and integrate content-extracted information for a gamut of business needs.
 
One of the most interesting developments on the publishing side is the emergence of a wide range of APIs, application programming interfaces, that allow functions such as tagging, topic classification, and content enrichment (with semantically associated information) to be included in publishing processes. 
 
And on the information-consumption side, yes, there's semantic search and also semantically supported content integration that allows real-time information aggregation, essentially information aggregation and analysis dashboards that range from "listening platforms" to interfaces for BI-style analyses of text-sourced data.
