What caught my eye was a description of the way Biogen-Idec uses several discrete tools to find, organize and analyze text and gain significant gains in productivity while generating new insights from that content. Those new insights are generated by passing content from one tool to another in a relatively seamless manner. Each tool can then apply its own unique capabilities to tease out the insights.
At Biogen-Idec the tools that are used include QUOSA, Linguamatics and InforSense. Elsewhere in the article, mention is made of other tools including Vivisimo, Insightful InFact, Nervana and Ingenuity IPA.
