Version 6.0 Boasts Ease-of-Use, Time Savings and Provides Customers with the Ability to Discover and Publish Key Insights Using Semantic Technology
Dedham, Mass., June 15, 2009 – Metatomix, Inc., a leading provider of semantic solutions to justice and public safety, financial services, manufacturing and life sciences organizations, today announced the availability of mtx Semantic Platform version 6.0 – the newest release of the company’s core semantic technology-based platform. The next-generation version of the platform will serve as the foundational architecture for all current and future solutions offered by the company as well as its partners.
Version 6.0 offers an approach to building and deploying business solutions that discovers key insights across the distributed enterprise landscape, and triggers business processes to capture high risk events or information. For partners and solution developers, the advances in 6.0 will reduce development time and enable customers to further leverage existing enterprise IT investments. With these significant advances in the technology, Metatomix’s customers and partners will benefit from an enhanced ability to find and process structured and unstructured information within many applications across the enterprise.
Key features of Version 6.0 include the ability to operate as a stand-alone platform or inside a standard J2EE Application Server certified on Apache Tomcat, IBM Websphere and Oracle Weblogic. In addition, it features OSGi-based configuration of platform resources, which provides customers with significant code re-use and ease of deployment. The new version also includes enhanced Web Service support in order to allow customers to publish platform semantic services as standard Web services.
“Version 6.0 of our semantic platform is yet another example that Metatomix is determined to bring next-generation semantic technology to our customers and partners,” said Metatomix Chief Technology Officer Howard Greenblatt. “The new version of the platform allows our customer-base to discover and publish key insights easier and faster, thus maximizing the power of semantic technology for the enterprise like never before. Moving ahead, Metatomix looks forward to further use and adoption of the platform and its associated tooling.”
Packaged with Semantic Platform 6.0, the company is also introducing the Semantic Editing Framework – providing the ability to generate dynamic user interfaces based on domain ontologies. Metatomix’s partners and customers can now extend the intelligence generated from semantic-based data integration with a highly configurable and easily deployed user interface framework for solution development. The Semantic Editing Framework also includes several capabilities such as local caching, change notification, renderers and the synchronization of application data between rich Web client and server applications. The interface can also be used across multiple functions in the semantic application and leverages tools like Adobe Flex and other rich Internet application development architectures such as AJAX, JSP and SWT.
Finally, Version 6.0 updates Metatomix’s Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) tool called mtxStudio, formerly named MetaStudio. The newly enhanced mtxStudio now allows for platform administration directly inside the tool. Further, a runtime version of the platform can be operated within mtxStudio, providing developers a single integrated workspace for modifying and building semantic solutions.
