About US

Syl. Find simplicity.

Our goal is the development of technologies and solutions that deliver 'Information Intelligence' - the ability for companies to access and extract value, meaning and learning from information, and make well-informed decisions for the benefit of their customers and their business.

We do this with an enterprise semantic technology platform designed to provide an array of outcomes such as search, discovery, cataloguing and reporting of unstructured information.

Our clients include high profile public and private sector organisations that use Syl to manage large, complex information repositories and legally sensitive information.
