SolvePath Transforms Enterprise Q&A Space With Natural Language Processing and Big Data Technologies

SolvePath From Senexx Provides New Way to Help Corporate Employees Find Information and Subject Matter Experts Quickly and Easily

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 -- Senexx, Inc. today announced the availability of SolvePath, a breakthrough enterprise questions and answers (Q&A) collaboration platform that empowers businesses to provide their employees with fast, easy access to critical knowledge and expertise within their organization. SolvePath is a cloud-based solution that helps eliminate the obstacle of finding a subject matter expert or the right piece of information hidden within the massive volumes of "big data" that exist in today's corporate enterprises. Unlike existing Social Business Software (SBS) systems that force users to spend time going through videos, files and other content to find the answers to specific questions, SolvePath uses advanced Natural Language Processing and machine learning algorithms to provide a targeted solution to the information consumption problem.

About 80% of valuable information in an enterprise is unstructured data like emails and files. Research shows that corporate employees spend up to 20 percent of their workday searching for information, and consume nearly 30 percent of their time reading, writing and responding to emails.

SolvePath helps companies improve employee productivity and job performance by accelerating and simplifying access to internal corporate knowledge. It enables users to ask questions in natural language, explore topics and find experts directly from their organizations' existing email, instant messaging or internal social networks. In addition, SolvePath also integrates with popular social business networks such as Yammer™, with whom they have a technology partnership, and LinkedIn©. Senexx also offers custom integrations with other leading CRM, knowledge management and social business software platforms to help companies build on the investments of these systems.

"In many organizations, finding a specific piece of internal information or even a subject matter expert can be a slow and frustrating experience. On the public web, there are tools like Quora that can answer users' questions, but that hasn't been the case for internal corporate systems," said Zeevi Michel, CEO and co-founder of Senexx. "With SolvePath, corporate employees now have a powerful and accurate tool for answering their questions and finding experts so they can perform their jobs more efficiently and effectively."

Natural language processing and text analytics
SolvePath's semantic search and text analysis capabilities allow users to ask questions in a natural style, without the syntax limitations or overly broad results of a typical keyword search. Knowledge-routing algorithms find the most reliable answer for each question and immediately notify internal experts that can provide further guidance on specific topics. SolvePath automatically tags questions and answers, updates internal expert rankings, and can quickly update expert profiles by connecting to LinkedIn and Yammer profiles. The result is an easy-to-use solution that provides immediate business benefits across a wide range of corporate functions such as sales, pre-sales, customer support, professional services and more.

"With a large part of the average workday taken up with research and answering emails, increasing actual productivity that impacts on-the-job results is a major achievement," said Brad Shimmins, Analyst for Current Analysis. "An internal Q&A collaboration platform like SolvePath that not only leverages unstructured data to enhance the user experience, but that can also integrate with other collaboration tools could result in significant productivity gains."

Availability
SolvePath Basic is free and includes system integrations with mail servers, LinkedIn, Yammer and Google contacts. SolvePath Premium is available at a monthly subscription fee and will include the SolvePath platform along with premium training, support, special administration control, analytics and custom integrations to key systems such as Zendesk, SharePoint, and SFDC, including those in the basic edition. SolvePath can also be embedded as a web app in existing platforms. To register directly go to: www.senexx.com.

Senexx is backed by several leading angel investors. With the launch of SolvePath, the company will begin its Series A investment round.

As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets.

Enterprises require the performance, agility and on-demand access of the public cloud, and the management, security and compatibility of the private cloud. The solution? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Simone Brunozzi, VP and Chief Technologist(global role) for VMware, will explore how to unlock the power of the hybrid cloud and the steps to get there. He'll discuss the challenges that conventional approaches to both public and private cloud computing, and outline the tough decisions that must be made to accelerate the journey to the hybrid cloud. As part of the transition, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service model will enable enterprise IT to build services beyond their data center while owning what gets moved, when to move it, and for how long. IT can then move forward on what matters most to the organization that it supports – availability, agility and efficiency.
Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.
