Integrate and search across any relational database or spreadsheet without centralizing your data


Who We Are

Incubated out of the University of Texas at Austin, Capsenta increases the value of companies’ data by enriching it to become a knowledge graph (semantics). Semantics improve search, analysis, and interpretation. Capsenta’s patented technology is the only complete turnkey solution to making existing SQL, and SQL data warehouse infrastructure, upward compatible with semantics. The approach assures scalability and robustness. Traditional applications seamlessly coexist with semantically enriched applications.

By enriching data with semantics, Capsenta is able to accelerate the provisioning process from months to days. Capsenta’s technology starts with standards compliance and is able to integrate the result with any existing database infrastructure. Thus, Capsenta customers benefit from the power of semantics from day one, and with low risk.

NoETL - Power of Integrating Disparate Databases

NoETL (Extract Transform Load)

NoETL White Paper – Realize the Potential of NoETL

80% of the time and cost associated with big data is consumed by data integration. Capsenta solutions address this problem by enabling the integration of multiple data sources, across any relational database, without the inefficiency of ETL. Source data is never moved from its original location yet disparate databases are tied together creating a virtual analytics layer. All this without sacrificing accessibility and performance

  • Deliver data integration projects in days instead of months
  • Deploy on premise and in the cloud

Ultrawrap™ by Capsenta Inc. is middleware that integrates and enriches disparate databases with semantic technology, enabling next generation search across all data simultaneously. Learn how organizations such as Google Ideas, the United Nations and the healthcare industry is using Ultrawrap to reduce IT overhead while enabling improved speed to market.

Austin MedTech Showcased at SXSW

“Capsenta, which spun out of the University of Texas at Austin, also put its technology on display at the expo. Daniel Miranker, professor of computer science at UT and Juan Sequeda, graduate student, founded the company. It is based on the trademarked “ultrawrap” software that Sequeda invented. The software automatically compiles disparate data using keywords and phrases.”

The App That Helps You Draft a Constitution




Ultrawrap™ by Capsenta dynamically integrates data, regardless of database platform, without the need for data warehousing.

The processes automatically compile disparate data using keywords and phrases to yield actionable insight. Ultrawrap™ software makes useful observations available to the client in a fraction of the time compared to other methods.


Ultrawrap has been crafted to make maximal use of existing SQL infrastructure, particularly the databases own metadata and its SQL optimizer. Across benchmarks and relational database platforms, the scalability of Ultrawrap consistently matches the scalability of the underlying relational database system.

Ultrawrap consists of two parts: Compile and Server. Ultrawrap Compile processes the mapping and generates RDF and OWL. Ultrawrap Server executes SPARQL queries by pushing all optimizations to the SQL engine.

  • SPARQL execution as fast as SQL
  • Customizable mapping through a GUI and SQL
  • W3C RDB2RDF Standard Compliant
  • Publication of the SQL Schema as OWL

Capsenta's Ultrawrap is an enterprise software that virtualizes a Relational Databases as a Semantic Web datasource. Ultrawrap supports the latest W3C standards such as Relational Databases to RDF (RDB2RDF) standards: Direct Mapping and R2RML, and SPARQL 1.1. A key feature of Ultrawrap is that SPARQL query execution is pushed into the reliable SQL optimizer. Therefore, Ultrawrap executes SPARQL as fast as SQL.

D2RQ is an academic open source alternative with a small developer community.

The following table highlights the differences between Ultrawrap and D2RQ.

Category Feature Ultrawrap D2RQ
Deployment ETL: Dump Relational Data to RDF
Wrapper: Execute SPARQL on Relational Databases
Mappings Support for W3C Direct Mapping standard
Generate Ontology from relational schema and data
Support for W3C R2RML standard
Queries and Performance Leverage Internal Database Optimizers for Improved Performance
Improved SPARQL query execution
SPARQL 1.1. Aggregates
SPARQL 1.1 Subqueries

What our Clients are saying

  • In supporting the development of Constitute, we relied heavily on the processing of constitutional data. We were incredibly impressed with Capsenta’s founder’s leadership and knowledge of semantic integration.

    Google Ideas Team

    • The professionalism and technical acumen of the Capsenta team is first rate. If not for the differentiated ability of the Capsenta’s Ultrawrap(TM) solution to enrich the data with semantics, the integration and faceted search of disparate constitutional data would have not been possible.” Dr Zachary Elkins, PhD, Comparative Constitutions Project Lead and Professor of Government, University of Texas

      Dr Zach Elkins
    • “Two major reasons we chose Ultrawrap, the first is the coverage of standards and support of those standards. The second is that it provided the means to migrate our D2RQ mapping into our R2RML Mappings.”

      “Nothing would give us the performance increase that Ultrawrap does.”

      Dr Barry Norton, PhD; Development Manager at The British Museum
