ZapNote: Scientio
While XML data is fundamentally tree-based and hierarchical, most data that is currently mined is table-based and relational. Many existing data mining algorithms deal don’t well with sparse data, and XML is a great example of such sparse data. Scientio has taken an approach to create data mining applications that deal well with the requirements of XML documents. [hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: Mozquito
Mozquito Technologies AG produces a suite of development tools targeted at advanced interactive "form" development using XForms , XHTML, and their Forms Markup Language (FML) in its Mozquito Factory and Matrix product lines. This is important, since like XML, forms represent a structured interchange of data. Forms provide additional specific features such as workflow, auto-fill, and pre-fill form applications that are supported through the use of instance data.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: Autonomy
While a human can identify the similarity between XML tags such as "PO", "PurchaseOrder", and "PurchOrd", an automated system would identify them as differently as "green", "car", and "jump". To address these issues of meaning, or "semantics", Autonomy has developed a set of products that aim to simplify the process of context-aware categorization and tag-set matching. While not a "Semantic Web" technology in the strict sense, it plays in that general environment.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: PRISM
As companies increasingly partner and syndicate their content to other locations, the need to locate, reuse, and repurpose content in different forms and in real-time is becoming increasingly important. Today, repurposing consists mostly of cutting and pasting different content components. This simplistic mechanism has been the main way of accomplishing this goal not out of efficiency but out of necessity — there simply are no reliable ways to automatically retrieve, aggregate, and reuse similar types of content. One of the efforts to solve these publishing issues is the Publishing Requirements for Industry Standard Metadata (PRISM) Working Group, which seeks to provide an extensible XML metadata standard for syndicating, aggregating, post-processing and multi-purposing content in both traditional and electronic publishing contexts.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…
