Semandex Announces Partnership to Bring Polling Data to Operational Users

PRINCETON, NJ--(Marketwire - February 7, 2011) - Semandex Networks Inc., today announced a new partnership with Pechter Middle East Polls (PMEP), to bring polling data to operational users in powerful new ways. Semandex develops web applications that allow users to quickly combine multiple datasets, interact with the data and produce a variety of visualizations. PMEP is breaking new ground in polling data from the Middle East and beyond that has caught the attention of policy makers interested in the region. Together, the partnership intends to provide operational users better data than ever before available with an easy-to-use tool that combines this data with other operational views.

Semandex's President and CEO, Dan Reininger, commented, "Our semantics-based connected intelligence technology is driven by scalability, flexibility and ease of use. We provide a new way to link high-value datasets into specialized actionable information faster and easier than ever before. The partnership with PMEP can now deliver both the data and the capability to use it."

For operational users focused on the perception of populations around the world, Semandex delivers a powerful new way to quickly combine and assess high-value datasets from many sources and in many formats. PMEP brings high-value, scientifically valid polling data on topics and regions of interest, and their methodology for assessing data enables users to combine this polling data with previously collected information. Semandex uses the combined information to show changes in perception over time and provides a path to Measures of Effectiveness for operational actions.
