Semantify’s platform makes it easier for companies to gather actionable insights from their data by allowing users to ask questions written in plain English, not code. VP of Product Strategy Arjun Dutt said the company’s use of cutting-edge tech has helped it appeal to both enterprise customers and young tech companies alike.
What is your company’s approach to evaluating and incorporating new technologies?
We view everything through the lens of our customers’ problems and focus on a subset of relevant technologies and avoid distraction from our core mission. To achieve this, we monitor developments within our area of interest and adjacent spaces and constantly explore how new technologies in artificial intelligence, business intelligence, search and semantic modeling can help address the key problems our customers face. Once a key potential customer problem is identified, we classify the new technology as either a core product enhancement or an opportunity to create solutions in partnership. This results in a win-win for both us as a product company and our customers.
“Adapting new technologies has helped keep Semantify ahead of the curve in solving customer problems.“
How has embracing cutting-edge technologies impacted your business and the products you build?
Adapting new technologies has helped keep Semantify ahead of the curve in solving customer problems through innovative approaches that combine robust enterprise-level solutions with state-of-the-art semantic technology, which is relatively recent. This has allowed us to stay relevant to established enterprise customers with mission-critical applications and to an emerging group of young technology companies who are addressing what has traditionally been a white space in the field of information analysis and discovery via semantics.
What technologies have you recently adopted and what are you keeping your eye on?
We’re monitoring the AI space, including language processing and conversational analytics, visualization, business intelligence and semantic modeling. We also contribute significantly to the industry innovation in these spaces.
