What is text analytics?
Text analytics leverages and learns from massive quantities of textual data to reveal customer intentions and sentiment, driving enterprise decisions and providing strategic insights. It is a set of analytical methods designed to operate across the written word, including call center notes, blogs, tweets, web pages, newspaper articles and much more. This kind of data is strongly distinct from that stored uniformly in database tables, and demands unique technology that integrates linguistics, grammar, math and knowledge engineering.

Solutions: Which are the best text analytics solution providers, what do they do and how do they compare?
Is this a “data mining” conference?
Partially – text analytics can be used to turn unstructured text into data. Depending on one’s definition of “data mining” – a subjective area – text analytics is distinct in that it may be employed for wider variety of value-driving applications by adding structure to the 90% of business information that is unstructured.
Is Text Analytics World run by a software vendor?
No. Text Analytics World provides a balanced view of text analytics methods and tools across software vendors and solution providers.
Does Text Analytics World cover natural language processing or computational linguistics research?
No. Text Analytics World is focused on today’s commercial deployment of text analytics, and while we might cover potential applications of this academic research into computational linguistics or NLP, but not the research issues directly.
