5 Key Steps: Integrate Knowledge Extraction with Popular Business Applications

Knowledge extraction automatically extracts structured information from unstructured or semi-structured data sources, such as text documents, websites, or databases. Knowledge extraction involves identifying and converting relevant pieces of information into a format that can be easily analyzed, organized, and stored. This process employs natural language processing (NLP), machine learning (ML), and data mining techniques to extract valuable insights, facts, or relationships from a large volume of data.

Knowledge extraction can be used in various applications, including information retrieval, text summarization, sentiment analysis, etc.

Another great thing for corporations wanting to use knowledge extraction for their information-finding is that they can integrate capable technologies into their existing applications and platforms – such as Salesforce, SharePoint, Office 365, chat applications like Microsoft Teams, and more.


Here are the 5 key steps businesses need to take.


1. Define Objectives

Clearly define your objectives for knowledge extraction. Understand what kind of information you want to extract and why.

  • Do you need to give sales teams knowledge of customers?
  • Do you need to provide product teams with market developments?
  • Do you need to offer R&D teams with relevant information sources?
  • Do you need to empower marketing teams with quick access to campaign statistics?

Or is it all the above and more?
