"Leveraging the semantic-driven technology platform of Thetus Publisher 2.6 allows us to use a service-oriented architecture (SOA) approach in creating a centralized knowledge management system to enable powerful collaboration and information sharing between government agencies," said Kenneth Bartee, ManTech MBI president. "We have no doubt that this innovative software platform, with its proven interoperability, policy and reporting mechanisms, and ease of deployment, will seamlessly accommodate a full spectrum of complex government data. Thetus helps us create fully accessible, actionable knowledge from disparate databases and evolving systems."

Designed to support operational security assessments, the force protection assessment system will allow users to seamlessly search, analyze, and fuse knowledge from various defense-related databases. MMBI selected Thetus Publisher 2.6 to power this system because of the software's ability to combine the vital factors of context and lineage, enabling a depth and relevance of knowledge for fast and accurate decision making. Wrapping dynamic, semantically-driven capabilities within layers of information lineage and policy controls, the Thetus platform enhances positive outcomes by delivering the right content and services to the right users at the right time.

"The Thetus Publisher delivers conceptual models of complex, interrelated sources and systems, making it an ideal solution for government applications — such as threat and risk modeling — that depend on rapid analysis and dissemination of critical knowledge," said Danielle Forsyth, CEO and co-founder of Thetus Corporation. "Our software's innovative semantic architecture enables information contextualization and lineage, providing analysts and decision makers with the knowledge to confidently identify, anticipate and act upon opportunities and threats."

Thetus Publisher 2.6

Building upon the success of previous versions, Thetus Publisher 2.6 enterprise software provides new features and enhanced functionality:

— Improved search filters enable searches with expanded breadth and accuracy. — Resource lineage is parsed, policy-filtered and associated with individual assertions, providing decision makers with more complete information and richer context for evaluation. — New reification capabilities allow metadata about a particular assertion to measure confidence in an assertion, why an assertion was added or modified, or to clarify information about the assertion. — Updated task management model and task development support enables more consistent task representation, simplified configuration of task network inputs and outputs, and increased search network integration. — Unmanaged metadata support enables the user to link to data in relational databases to present a fused view, eliminating data replication and ensuring flexibility and scalability of the overall deployment. — Easy upgrades are performed through an automated setup program that manages migration routines, performs error detection and correction, and handles updates and addition of ontology elements.
