According to a recent article out of New Zealand, "Wellington-based software company Syl Semantics can now announce that since July, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Science and Innovation group has being using Syl Semantics’ search engine technology across a number of their content sources. Syl Semantics’ chief executive Sean Wilson said, 'Although the new search technology formally went live earlier this year following a stress-free implementation, we haven’t been able to announce this contract until now. Winning this business was an important milestone for the company in that it provides a reference site within a core government agency'."
The article continues, "Initially, Syl’s semantic search technology was implemented across Science and Innovation’s client relationship management database, information management system, global expert database, windows file share and external website. Since becoming part of MBIE in July, this has been expanded to include the external websites of the former Departments of Labour, Building and Housing and Ministry of Economic Development. Steve Pyne, Science and Innovation’s chief information officer said, 'Syl provides a number of additional benefits over and above traditional enterprise search solutions, and is ideally suited to an environment in which much of the data uses highly technical, scientific language. Syl’s semantic search capability means we are now better able to access the information we require, and that searching produces faster and more accurate results'."
