In early June, Fynydd was invited to speak at the 2012 Semantic Tech & Business Conference in San Francisco, California. By all accounts, Fynydd’s message was unique, informative, and overall very well received by conference attendees.
The topic “How To Build a Semantic Content Management System From Scratch” garnered much interest even before the conference began. Ron Michael Zettlemoyer, Fynydd’s Chief Innovation Officer, was the main speaker, with support from other members of Fynydd’s team. During Ron’s presentation, he outlined a case study based on a recent Fynydd client engagement. Ron walked through the successes and challenges Fynydd faced in designing and implementing a semantic prototype system for a large financial institution.
Though primarily invited as a speaker, Fynydd also secured a location on the exhibit floor of the conference so that they could present their full breadth of services to conference attendees. Activity at the exhibit was bustling. Attendees remarked about Fynydd's unique set of service offerings, as well as how they worked with other exhibitor products to build holistic solutions for their clients. Conversations focused heavily on user interface design and overall user experience as well as implementation of semantic technologies across a wide variety of industries and projects.
With the success of this conference, Fynydd was asked to present at the SemTechBiz satellite conference in London later this year.
