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.

More Silobreaker Widgets

We have now added two more widgets in addition to the Network and In Focus widgets we launched in early August. All these widgets are free to use, are updated dynamically and can be added by anyone to their web pages, blogs, forums, etc (just like we've done below).

Story Widget
The Story Widget shows the latest top stories for whatever person, company, organisation, entity, topic, search term etc you select (e.g. like iPhone below). Simply click on the "embed-button" at the top of any story list in Silobreaker and follow the simple steps to embed the feature on your own web page. Takes less than a minute.

Content Widget
The Content Widget shows the latest content headlines for your search term organised under separate tabs; one for news one for blogs, etc (e.g. like for Afghanistan below). You'll find the "embed-button" in the More Content section at the bottom of many pages in Silobreaker.

Have a go and try them out. Great to use as a "news-window" on your own site.

We've also updated the api with functions for the new widgets.
