I’m thrilled to share that I’ve just joined Connotate as Vice President, Product Strategy.
Connotate is the leader in the web content extraction space. Publishers, ecommerce retailers, financial institutions, government agencies and others rely upon Connotate to aggregate, organize, analyze and distribute web data at scale.
Connotate agents can mine content from websites, extracting critical pieces of data, then structure, aggregate and organize that information for use in analytical applications. Clients use Connotate to monitor prices on tens of thousands of items, run background checks on potential new hires, and aggregate data to update information services.
In many ways, Connotate is the perfect home for me. I’ve spent much of the past fifteen years helping publishers and media companies create content-driven products. Extracting insights from the web has been a big part of that - from my early days at semantic pioneer ClearForest to harvesting and tagging news and social media content at Alacra.
While many technology companies have latched onto the big data theme, Connotate has been focused on extracting data at scale since the start. Whether you’re automating background checks, analyzing the sentiment of customer comments or pulling pricing data from competitor websites, Connotate can deliver highly accurate results across a wide range of disparate sources.
Last year, Connotate acquired Fetch, its largest direct competitor, and is currently positioned for strong growth. There are a number of interesting market opportunities which we’ll be exploring in the coming weeks and months. If you have web data challenges, I’d love to get your thoughts on areas where we might focus. You can reach me at bgraubart-at-connotate-dot-com.
