Strategic Partnership with In-Q-Tel Will Bring Advanced Document Analytics to the U.S. Intelligence Community

Laguna Hills, Calif., May 31, 2016 – Ephesoft Inc., creators of the industry-leading Smart Capture® advanced document capture platform, today announced a strategic partnership with In-Q-Tel (IQT), the investment organization that identifies innovative technology solutions to support the mission of the U.S. Intelligence Community.

Ephesoft Insight is a powerful Document Analytics platform that utilizes a combination of Hadoop for clustering multiple PCs to act as a single “supercomputer” with Apache Spark, an open source technology that accelerates data processing by loading data from memory. The result is a combination of high-volume and velocity that enables Insight to identify unstructured content faster and more accurately than any other system. Organizations can now unlock the 80 percent of information that is often trapped in an unstructured format

“The Ephesoft solution applies machine learning techniques towards the problem of accurately extracting data from essentially unsearchable documents” said George Hoyem, Partner, Investments at IQT. “This capability may allow the Government to quickly unlock valuable data from millions of documents, save on storage costs, and enable enterprise visibility into trapped data.”

“IQT’s investment in our company and technology platform validates our approach to leverage machine learning to tap into the valuable data trapped in massive unstructured content repositories,” explained Ike Kavas, Ephesoft’s Chief Technology Officer. “Ephesoft Insight changes the information model of amassing content to an innovative model of gaining insight from content through normalization, discovery, mining and predictive analytics.”
