Business Problem

Building business intelligence requires more than simply searching for and finding vast amounts of information. The ability to perform accurate, large-scale and rapid detection of key information trapped in the enterprise, electronic or social media is vital. Businesses need to automatically identify entities filtering out the noise in unstructured text sources and provide structure for use in routing, search and business intelligence applications.

Who: people, job titles and national identification numbers

What: companies, organizations, financial indexes and products

Where: addresses, cities, states, countries, facilities, internet addresses and phone numbers

When: dates, days, holidays, months, years, times and time periods

How much: currencies and units of measures
