COLUMBIA SC – September 4, 2008 – Collexis Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: CLXS), a leading developer of semantic search and knowledge discovery software, announced today that it has been named one of KMWorld magazine’s Trend-Setting Products of 2008. This marks the second consecutive year Collexis has been recognized for its groundbreaking and innovative technology. This is the sixth year of the KMWorld selection process.
“This year’s edition has been compiled through briefings with vendors themselves, along with conversations with analysts, users and system integrators,” said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor-in-chief. “Our mission selecting this year’s products has been deceptively simple: select those that deliver robust customer value.”
Collexis technology is based on the ability to identify and map ideas from data using vocabularies, like a thesaurus. The process is called Collexis Fingerprinting. It allows for expert profiling systems and a broad range of knowledge discovery applications and visualizations. Collexis also empowers the user to view their research results in a more productive manner and provides new insights or fields of study, which would never be revealed using conventional search or knowledge management approaches.
“We are honored that KMWorld has selected Collexis’ technology as a ‘Trend-Setting Product’ for the second consecutive year,” said Chief Executive Officer Bill Kirkland. “Since our last selection, in 2007, the market has validated what KMWorld saw first – that Collexis is a leader in Knowledge Discovery. Our new engagements with Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, the National Institutes of Health and other leading life science institutions, have been complimented with similar growth in defense, intelligence and legal markets. We greatly appreciate the recognition of such a hallmark institution in Information Management.”
