Wolters Kluwer: Data, Information and Knowledge—when you have to be right

June 30, 2017

Founded and headquartered in the Netherlands, Wolters Kluwer is a global information service provider with a rich heritage of more than 180 years in innovation and technology. We are proud and honored to act as the main industry sponsor for SEMANTiCS 2017 in Amsterdam.

Data, information and knowledge is our business—and our main asset in helping professionals in more than 180 countries around the world make critical decisions with confidence. The decisions our customers make help save lives, improve the way business is done, shape better global systems and contribute to a more just society. So they have to be right.

And so, understandably, we engage deeply with the semantic web, linked data, data science in general, and open data initiatives. SEMANTiCS is a great fit with Wolters Kluwer, and we are happy to build on our long-lasting relationship by offering an opening keynote from Sandeep Sacheti on the strategic implications of semantic technologies in our industry; an industry workshop covering application areas of semantic technologies in health, compliance, legal and tax sectors. We also have a booth, where students and professionals can find out more about positions with, partnerships and collaborations with Wolters Kluwer. And of course, we have a number of conference attendees who will share their personal experience with semantic web technologies.

The semantic web is an important enabler both for us as a company, and for the information industry as a whole, to be able to build and run and extend data intensive information systems on a global scale. As business models—even entire industries—continue to be disrupted, fundamental change is required to manage, survive and thrive. The continual evolution of data, information and knowledge is crucial. We look forward to sharing our experience and insights at SEMANTiCS 2017.
