SAN FRANCISCO September 14 ,2012 - SAP presented its "SAP Big Data Startup of the Year" award to Tweather after evaluating 70 companies at TechCrunch Disrupt 2012 in San Francisco, held September 10-12. The award is given to a company who understands and demonstrates its ability to process Big Data through innovation. Tweather analyzes Twitter's streaming content and reveals emerging patterns and trends about any topic.
Tweather is a Minnesota-based start-up founded in April of 2012. The company showcased for the first time its website www.tweather.co as a sponsor and exhibitor during the TechCrunch Disrupt event. The company’s site reveals the emerging headlines from Twitter's streaming content through visualizing their correlation, emergence, and relevance, thus bringing discovery and awareness to its users. Tweather captured the attention of the attendees, technology analysts and the press with its innovative way to consume tweets.
Tweather’s co-founder and CEO of Darwin Ecosystem Inc., Thierry Hubert, accepted the award on the behalf of his team mentioning his surprise and appreciation given that the company is only five months old. Tweather.co is powered by Darwin Ecosystem’s Awareness Engine.
Darwin Ecosystem’s Awareness Engine™ has been chosen by KM World as Trend-Setting Product for 2011. This marks the second year in a row we have been designated with this honor. It is much appreciated. Each year, KMWorld editors review the previous year’s technology advancements, with particular attention toward those products that represent new or business-critical direction for the industry at large. These are then called "Trend-Setting Products of the Year."
The KMWorld Trend-Setting Product list was first published in 2003. The selected products "demonstrate thoughtful, well-reasoned innovation and execution for the most important constituency of them all: the customer".

We are very pleased that the Darwin Awareness Engine™ received the 2010 KM Promise Award today at KM World. It is a great honor. Here is the description of the award from the KM World site.
“Many companies promise that their technology is the best knowledge management solution. One of the greatest challenges for organizations purchasing these technologies is to determine which of these companies will deliver on this promise. This award is given to the organization that is delivering this promise to its customers by providing innovative technology solutions for implementing and integrating knowledge management practices into their business processes. The award-winning organization demonstrates how it goes beyond simply delivering technology to working with clients to ensure that both the technology and knowledge processes are imbedded into the work processes. In other words, it helps organizations realize positive business results.”
We are in great company. Last year’s winner was Inmagic and the 2008 winner was Attivio. Both are great companies that I have covered several times (for most recent see Inmagic Presto 3.5 Broadens Its Collaboration Capabilities and Attivio Aligns with Traction and Releases New Features). Here is a conversation I had this year with Sid Probstein, Attivio CTO.
Here is a video of the award presentation created by Kurt Kragh Serenson of IntraTeam.
KM World is a great event that is currently in its 14ht year. I remember going to the first three and many since then. I am now covering a number of this year’s sessions on this blog. Here is a complete listing of my KM World 2009 Session Notes.
We have recently released a series of themed Darwin Editions¬ powered by the Awareness Engine™ that focus on specific topics to better demonstrate its capabilities and as a service to our readers. These can each be accessed at no cost. You only have to go through a brief registration process and we promise you that no sales person will contact you as a result.
Here are links to a series of posts going into more detail on the first three Darwin Editions and how to use them:
You can either look at the general buzz from these sites or choose attractors to focus on specific topics of interest. The default shows you what has happened in the target content sources in the last hour. You can expand it to the last two hours, 24 hours and even last 200 hours. You can focus on the more formal sources or the informal ones (bloggers) or look across both. Again, details instructions can be found in our post on instructions.
We hope that you find these Darwin Editions useful and will certainly appreciate any feedback. Please contact us at feedback@DarwinEco.com. We will also be happy to discussion the various business options for a fully functional Darwin edition with all administration rights. You can create your own Darwin Editions on the topics of your choice with the target content of your selection. There are both individual and enterprise options.
The growing volume of Web 2.0 information causes search engines to rethink their outdated popularity-ranking algorithms by bringing timely social media content to the foreground in an attempt to increase relevance for users. In the recent FaceBook privacy controversy, Web users made it clear that they are not so eager to allow search engines to mine their communities’ content for the benefit of search engine companies and other third parties. As a result, many believe social media content is not rescuing search engine companies’ quest for intimate relevance.
To that end, Darwin Ecosystem (darwineco.com) has unveiled its Awareness Engine. The technology reveals emerging patterns and correlations that accelerate the user’s understanding of what is happening about a given theme of interest regardless of popularity ranking.
Darwin Ecosystem believes this organic and self-organizing model is best adapted to the evolution of today’s Web when compared with the increasing limitation of page ranking offered by search engines. Although not a replacement for search engines, Darwin’s Awareness Engine highlights a new and missing perspective. The Darwin interface provides an intuitive, interactive ScanCloud (patent pending) that reveals correlated themes for contextual content filtering around users’ topics of interest, a BuzzTape that displays themes that have high content acceleration within the last 24 hours, and the ability to save attractors to monitor the evolution of favorite topics.
Company founder and CEO Thierry Hubert feels that Darwin’s Awareness Engine will power a new model of information consumption that will benefit Web and enterprise users alike while allowing Web 2.0 authors to be noticed in a timely and relevant context. Darwin Ecosystem’s product roadmap extends beyond its Web Awareness Engine as Darwin intends to empower its user community. Its solutions and API are designed to allow meaningful discovery to be accessible, useable and beneficial to users seeking to favor the voice and movement of the Web, instead of being subjected to sites that determine what matters according to popularity.
