Enterprise Use of Semantic Technology - A Presentation for SemTech and on YouTube
Mike Delaney and I have produced a set of videos focused on When to Consider Semantic Technology for Your Enterprise. A brief blog post describes the videos. You can view the series playlist or view the individual videos linked below.
The videos are based on presentations that Mike and I delivered at the New York City and San Francisco SemTechBiz conferences in 2013.
This talk is for people who want to understand Semantic Technology in the context of enterprise architectures and application development. We compare the strengths (and weaknesses) of RDBMS, NoSQL, and Graphs (Triple-Stores) and look at the types of problems which truly benefit from the use of this new technology.
We also discuss some of the challenges, victories, and lessons learned from a real-world project where we used semantic technology to assist a MAC (Medicare Administrative Contractor) with their Medical Review process. How was Semantics integrated into a traditional infrastructure? What gains have been realized and how have Semantics impacted their day-to-day business? How are they using analytics to deal with a real-world Big Data problem? How is it being used to aid the skilled medical reviewers - and how is that information being fed back to providers to improve the claims submitted?
Key topics we address include:
- What are the strengths of Semantic Technologies?
- How does the use of semantic technology compare to (more) traditional paradigms?
- What are some success stories from real implementations?
- Describe first-hand use of semantic technology to help with medical claim review
