We are klarso

Let us make one thing clear: your data.

The problem with most complex data is that it’s not smart, neither its representation, nor its maintenance. It needs to be ready for smart applications like deep search, logical conclusions, artificial intelligence thinking and natural language processing. Klarso’s unique semantic network database environment lets you naturally represent data with unprecedented flexibility and makes maintenance a breeze. The result: Smart data for powerful data interactions and intelligent documents.

klar:suite for smart data

  • Comprehensive representation in a semantic network

  • Flexible processing through continuous abstraction

  • Efficient maintenance with workflows, automation, editors

  • Meaningful explanation of complex real-world dependencies

  • Individualized insights reflecting the knowledge logically

  • Intelligent text understanding and generation

  • Natural language processing for AI applications

The klar:suite as an agile and intelligent software environment for customized solutions is used in two application areas for customers from industry, media and publishing

Smart Content

Klar:suite manages your extensive and complex content such as scientific texts, contracts and technical documentation and makes it smart, usable and future-proof for your applications.

Klar:suite facilitates data maintenance, workflow, rights, translation, media management and versioning. Intelligent search functions and other demand-oriented, flexible and quickly adapted editors and viewers process new questions depending on the context. Due to the natural data representation, which no XML-based editing system can offer you, new contexts, structural analogies and contradictions are generated and output visibly and dynamically and flexibly in terms of content. So you benefit more from your content. klar:suite is future-proof with extended language support with grammar decomposition also for AI applications.

Smart Products

Highly complex products need product data that know: Which product and accessory options are compatible? Which product data is aimed at which target group? Which features are particularly important for which area of application? The klar:suite makes your product data smart.

Klar:suite combines, harmonizes and networks thematically all product information from marketing, ERP (e.g. Baan) and sales systems, reduces the effort for product data maintenance, allows consistent and up-to-date product communication across all sales and marketing channels, helps with flexible configuration and combination of products, with quotation and order validation and can finally be used for high-quality recommendations.

Semantic networks and knowledge management — context does the trick

Johannes Munk

Semantic networks combine functions of ontologies, topic maps, taxonomies and thesauri. They model complex relationships and directly transform large amounts of structured and unstructured content into networked units of knowledge. In this way, computer-readable and -usable knowledge bases are created. The creation and maintenance of semantic networks is demand-driven and interactive between humans and computers. With adapted editors, NLP, semantic classification and self-learning processes, context and text comprehension mature gradually and increasingly. Such semantic networks deliver explainable and comprehensible results. They are of great value to researchers and companies in any industry, and open the door for innovative applications – user-oriented, context- and demand-driven – both in-house and for customers.

tekom Spring Conference 2022

Date: 06/07 April
Location: Potsdam + live streaming & showrooms

United under the focus topic “User Experience – the “new normal”?”, a two-day diversified programme of expert presentations, tutorials and workshops awaits you on-site in Potsdam. This means plenty of knowledge transfer from industry experts, professional and personal development, exciting presentations, lively exchanges and diverse networking opportunities. In addition, you can purchase an online ticket to follow the lectures live. All on-site and online visitors will have access to the respective recordings for three months.

Our colleagues Johannes Munk and Dr. Katharina Munk are happy to invite you to the lecture on “Semantic Knowledge Networks as the Basis for Innovative Services for User Information” on 7 April at 14:50-16:30.


Documentation in mechanical engineering

Date: 02 June
Venue: Neue Stadthalle Langen, Südliche Ringstraße 77, 63225 Langen, Germany.
Duration: 1 day

“The focus of this year’s conference with the topic, Outsourcing strategies for future-proof technical documentation, is the question of how technical documentation can be digitalised and kept up to date with the latest technology so that regulatory requirements are met and the company’s own products and services continue to be attractive to customers.”

We invite you to the Klarso booth. You can expect a presentation of the klar:suite as an editorial system for technical documentation with new innovative solutions for the special requirements of complex technical documentation in plant engineering. We will show you how your content can be linked with data from other company areas such as marketing and ERP and how you can model natural relations in a flexible and expandable way. For individual product configurations, machines and plants, the relevant information units can be automatically composed and exported according to requirements.

Semantic knowledge networks – trustworthy AI for innovative business applications

Katharina Munk, 2022

Semantic software technologies transform large quantities of structured and unstructured data into computer-readable and computer-usable knowledge networks. The creation and maintenance of knowledge networks are achieved through agile interaction between humans and computers. With customized editors, Natural Language Processing, semantic classification and self-learning processes, context and text understanding gradually and increasingly mature.

Such knowledge networks deliver explainable and comprehensible results. They are of great value for research and companies in every industry and open the door to innovative applications both within companies and for customers: Examples include editorial systems and product information systems with content and formal support for new digital information services and products, 360° input for business decisions and search and aggregation of semantic connections in existing content.

What do we actually understand by “smart data”? This article provides answers: Information and data are linked to form a knowledge network. From this, new information products can be created or mapped in a portal, for example to facilitate deep search.
