MongoDB: Semantics & Big Data environments merge to give us innovative technology!

Expert System, leaders of semantic technology has announced its partnership with the leading database provider, MongoDB. Before we analyze the implications of two big names, leaders in their respective fields, entering into a strong alliance, let’s understand what each of them brings to the table.


Expert systems are leaders in semantic technology. Cogito, their patented, multi-lingual semantic language, understands unstructured data within their context, giving a complete and exact picture of the existing system and analysis. Context plays a great role in deciphering unstructured data, something that was hitherto peculiar only to mankind as opposed to a machine. Cogito breaks this complex barrier with its powerful automatic disambiguation and reads the content the way people do.

From enterprises to industries to the government, Cogito caters to every linguistic need in the most precise manner. Every industry follows a unique language, with its own dictionary of words, to suit the framework of its business. Cogito uses Sensigrafo to classify and define data within the context of the specific domain. Cogito uses the knowledge stored in your database for all your management applications within their context. It can understand and differentiate between same words that can have different meaning depending upon their context.

Following are some of the instances where Cogito enhances the quality of business.  

Customer support: Cogito can be a life-saver when this technology is used via Web, SMS, voice, or call center. It bridges the gap between the customer and the service provider even as it translates what the customer wants in the exact manner leaving no room for ambiguity.

Knowledge management: Cogito interprets what your customer needs or where your technology works or doesn’t, building a strong knowledge database.

Monitor social media: Cogito helps to understand and monitor social media cues as it accurately picks up the mood, intention and expression used in the social language.

MongoDB offers a dynamic and innovative environment for developers to develop and integrate software for data storage and processing. MongoDB is a collection of a document-oriented database, similar to table-oriented ones in a relational database, but with a dynamic schema. Dynamic schema essentially means that a document is not restricted to one particular structure. Two documents could have completely different schemas aside from having a similar field, yet Mongo DB makes it possible to make agile changes to respective fields without having to re-construct the entire database. This is especially beneficial to industries that deal with several product lines each having unique attributes but linked together with one similar element, for instance, the company code.

The dynamic schema of MongoDB makes it very easy to perform the read, access, add or delete operations within the database without affecting the database or impacting the performance or scalability of the operations. It is designed to accommodate large volumes of data as it scales the volume across several clusters. MongoDB offers flexibility in deployment as it is suited for hardware as well as Cloud architectures. Its map-reduce framework performs better than the traditional analytical tools by providing valuable insights in real-time.

Expedia, Forbes, Bosch and Metlife are some of the popular companies that have successfully deployed MongoDB.

What does a partnership between the two technologies mean?

As we can infer, the features of MongoDB make it an apt solution for businesses with huge data volumes and a rapid growth rate. A lot of data can be unstructured in a business and here’s where Cogito comes to aid with its powerful automated disambiguation. A partnership between these two fine technologies would help in integrating system users from MongoDB with Cogito to enable their access to unstructured data in a business environment in a precise and accurate manner, thereby reducing time and cost of implementation.

Expert System USA’s Luigi Paraboschi, Executive Vice President, Corporate Development, commented on the partnership: “Following our recent announcement with Cloudera and Google Cloud Platform, we’re extremely pleased to announce now the integration of Cogito with MongoDB. This partnership represents an important milestone in our strategy to ensure that Cogito is compatible with the most innovative and fastest growing technologies available today.”
