About Us

The KAPS Group is a network of text analytics, taxonomy, and knowledge architect consultants headed up by Tom Reamy who has over 20 years of experience and is the author of the book, Deep Text: Using Text Analytics to Conquer Information Overload, Get Real Value from Social Media, and Add Big(ger) Text to Big Data.

The company maintains a network of consultants with a wide range of skills in text analytics, taxonomy, search, knowledge management, and other information science topics. This enables us to utilize a flexible number of resources to scale solutions from simple strategy papers to full-scale enterprise application development.

We have experience with and partner relationships with multiple text analytics platforms such as SAS, IBM, Smartlogic, Expert System, Lexalytics, BA Insight, and others, as well as search and taxonomy software. In addition, we have developed a number of our own proprietary software tools and methods

Our current focus is on using text analytics as a foundation for applications such as:

  • Enterprise search and Info Apps that actually work by adding structure to unstructured documents of all kinds
  • Social Media and sentiment analysis that goes beyond counting positive and negative words
  • Big Data applications that adds depth, context, and intelligence to machine learning

The Theoretical and the Practical

We approach the practical application of text analytics from a deep theoretical foundation grounded in cognitive science, language, and meaning. This involves paying attention to the intricacies of the meaning of sentences and to the social and psychological dimensions of communities and their information behaviors.

We feel that, based on extensive and varied experience, that this theoretical foundation is the necessary ingredient for building truly practical applications.
