Ryma Licenses Coginov’s Semantic Technology

Add-on for FeaturePlan will provide deeper insight into volumes of data coming from customer feedback

MONTREAL, Québec – March 6, 2012 – Ryma Technology Solutions Inc., the leader in product management solutions, and Coginov Inc., a leader in semantic -based products and technologies, today announced a partnership that will see Coginov’s application programming interface (API) made available as an add-on for Ryma’s industry-leading product management software solution, FeaturePlan. 

“In today’s world, Product Managers are overloaded by data flow coming from too many sources – they need a better way to sort through all this information,” said Michel Besner, President and CEO of Ryma. “By integrating Coginov’s API into FeaturePlan, users will be able to implement intelligent categorization processes to better manage their product-related information and generate insight from unstructured data.”

Specializing in business solutions related to knowledge management, Coginov’s Natural Language Processing (NLP) & semantic technology is designed to identify and extract key concepts from documents in order to give meaning to data. Following the discovery and extraction of key phrases, concepts, and relationships found within documents’ unstructured text, the API organizes, categorizes and summarizes the information for the end-user so it can be effectively leveraged.

FeaturePlan’s Coginov add-on will provide key insight to information throughout the entire product lifecycle. From conducting market research to analyzing customer feedback, categorization and analysis of this information will allow product managers to efficiently and effectively determine the wants and needs of the market and develop innovative products that delight customers.

“The Coginov API is a powerful semantic analysis tool that provides unique insight into volumes of internal data by extracting, organizing and categorizing information,” said Jeannot Chapdelaine, CEO and co-founder of Coginov. “By partnering with Ryma, we will be able to build on an industry-leading solution and provide product managers with an optimized way of analyzing internally-held information.”Pricing and availability for FeaturePlan’s Coginov-API add-on will be announced at a future date.
