We're drowning in information and starving for knowledge.
Rutherford D. Rogers
The explosive growth of digital information in recent decades calls for a new generation of technologies to effectively manage information and information flows. The amount of digitally available information has become so big that it has almost become impossible for human knowledge worker to handle it manually and in its entirety. Organizations are increasingly faced with the problem that, although sufficient digital information is present, tools are lacking to make this information quickly and fully accessible. Robotic Information Integration overcomes this problem by providing a flexible framework that virtually connects all these information sources allowing the available information to be queried as if it were one big information source.
