Silobreaker Hires Business Head for Scandinavia

Today, we're announcing the arrival of Anders Kasberg to our Stockholm office. Anders has joined us as "Affärschef Norden / Sales Director" and will head up our business efforts in the Nordics.

Although most of the traffic to Silobreaker.com comes from the US, UK, Canada, Australia and other English-speaking nations, several companies and government agencies in Scandinavia are inquiring about our search tools and media-monitoring solutions too. As we announced last year, the Silobreaker Enterprise Software Suite was selected as the central engine for the Swedish Armed Forces’ new news intelligence system. With our Swedish heritage, this market will always feel like a local one, so making a business push here makes perfect sense.

Anders Kasberg joins us with a strong background in sales and marketing. He held several positions with Ericsson Enterprise Networks in Sweden and was the Area Sales Director North Latin America at Ericsson Enterprise Inc in the US. After a short stint as Vice President Marketing and Products at Celltribe AB during the first internet boom and bust, he became the Businss Area Manager at Teleadress AB, the provider of hitta.se, a directory search engine for Swedish telephone numbers and addresses. Most recently, Anders was the CEO of SWEDMA, the Swedish Direct Marketing Association. He has also worked as a consultant for start-ups grannar.se and hemq.se.

Silobreaker Enterprise Software Suite

Today, we are announcing our new software suite for enterprise and government customers looking for more effective ways to search, monitor and analyze the news, tailored to there own internal specifications. Silobreaker’s software provides the deep analytical tools and graphical representation giving customers the ability to find what they are looking for, and also find things they didn’t even know existed.

This is what Sue Feldman, a top search and discovery analyst from IDC says about our announcement: "The problem for information workers today is making sense of the information that they are drowning in. Combining access to information with tools that allow users to explore and understand should create an appealing product for Silobreaker. The fact that they use multiple visual tools, and use linguistic analysis, as well as pattern recognition means that they will be able to surface concepts and names of people, places and things. This in turn should save workers time, and help them to discover trends and facts in the information that they didn't know were there.”

We found that 'prosumers' of www.silobreaker.com quickly realize the value of the technology and want it tailored to meet their own needs by incorporating specific content and criteria. One example is the Swedish Armed Forces (Swedish: F√∂rsvarsmakten) who wanted a specific solution to meet their internal requirements. An overall contract was awarded to Swedish integration consultant LearningWell AB who teamed up with us and our Enterprise Software Suite became the central engine for the Swedish Armed Forces’ news intelligence system.

Here's a link to the full press release. Thanks for visiting Silobreaker, and let us know how we can help you get ahead of the deluge of news out there today.
