NEWBURYPORT, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2012) - Entagen, a fast-growing software company providing Big Data analytics and collaboration solutions across the enterprise, was named a winner in the Mass Technology Leadership Council (MassTLC) 2012 Technology Leadership Awards. Entagen won the "Innovative Technology of the Year: Big Data" award for its TripleMap platform at the awards ceremony last night.

"We are thrilled to be recognized by MassTLC for our innovative technology," said Christopher Bouton, CEO of Entagen. "We are in an exciting position at the intersection of Big Data and semantic technology, and are able to offer businesses across many sectors a powerful solution to connect the dots between the enormous amounts of data they are handling."

TripleMap helps companies identify opportunities and uncover patterns by connecting data from a variety of sources. Users search and analyze data entities and their associations in Entagen's proprietary high-performance Semantic Data Core technology, which aggregates structured and unstructured data and continuously scans both internal and external data sources. Users share this information visually by creating dynamic knowledge maps that capture associations between entities. TripleMap can be securely deployed within an organization's firewall or hosted in the cloud.

A study by IBM shows that we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day, which means that 90 percent of the data in the world has been created in the past two years alone. While that number may seem daunting, the amount of data that is readily accessible provides opportunities for companies to gain more from their data thereby driving more effective decision-making. For example, TripleMap can be used by legal firms to connect information relevant to cases; by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in their research and development efforts to discover unexpected associations and by healthcare organizations to identify specific patient cohorts, detect fraud and analyze trends.

The MassTLC Awards celebrate the top people and companies in technology, and a committee of over 40 industry executives, thought leaders and media were involved with the selection process for the nominees and determined the winners.
