Promethium Announces Issuance of a U.S. Patent for Natural Language Processing Technology

Patented technology automates the complex process of finding and preparing data, making true data democratization a reality

MENLO PARK, Calif., November 23, 2021 -- Augmented data management and analytics innovator Promethium today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a new patent No. 11,074,252, (the ‘252 patent) further strengthening the company’s intellectual property position and capabilities in the data analytics and management industry.

The ‘252 patent titled, “Using Stored Execution Plans for Efficient Execution of Natural Language Questions,” was awarded to Kaycee Lai, CEO of Promethium and is jointly owned by the company.

A major step toward true data democratization

The underlying technology of the patent takes the search-based data analytics experience to a new level of automation. Unlike other data analytics search solutions, this technology doesn’t require data to be in a centralized repository or for SQL to be pre-defined. Taking a question written in natural language, the patented technology automates the process of finding the best fit data across disparate data sources, preparing the data, generating the SQL, executing the federated query and returning the results. As this groundbreaking technology is applied, thousands of hours that would typically be spent on manual tasks and moving data can be saved.

“This issued patent demonstrates our commitment to democratize data by making the steps in the data analytics processes faster and easier,” said Kaycee Lai, CEO of Promethium. “Technology innovations like this are essential for speeding up data-driven decisions as data volumes and data complexity skyrocket .”

Innovative technology has received industry accolades

Recognition includes CRN Emerging Vendors 2021, Big Innovation Award 2021, 2021 SIIA CODiE Finalist, AI Excellence Award 2021, inclusion on the CRN Big data 100 list, IDC Innovators and Best New Product CDO Recommended.

“The CDO Magazine Best New Products CDO Recommended for 2021 recognition honors forward-thinking technology suppliers that are redefining data analytics by focusing on innovative products that help CDOs overcome the complex and ever-changing data analytics demands,” said Steve Wanamaker, CEO of The CDO Magazine. “Promethium was judged by a panel of 10 CDOs as solving real world problems for CDOs and data leaders in new and innovative ways.”
