Simply put is stands for Semiotic Parsing Language. But, more importantly it is the core of our technology.

We’re in the midst of finalizing a case study featuring how one of our customers used Glassbeam to make it’s support organization more efficient. Will be sure to update you when we launch the case study, but can share some key findings,

One that results fairly often is the need for SPL Maintenance. We work with manufacturers of complex technology platforms whose products get upgraded frequently — resulting in newer versions of call-home data and support bundles. These now have to be parsed and compiled; and our engineers routinely work with customers to update definitions that accurately reflect he nature of incoming data..
