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.

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

    • “By using Ultrawrap, we are able to significantly reduce complexity in the queries we use to extract data while making the solution more portable. Ultrawrap allows us to separate the design of the algorithm used to search for patients from the source data schema and then link the two together using Ultrawrap’s computer aided mapping tool.  This allowed us to significantly reduce time to build and test to a fraction of the time it would typically take,”

      Russell Buchanan
      Terminology Practice Lead
      Gevity Consulting

      •  The opportunities to more easily and efficiently identify these patients are profound. We can save thousands of lives every year through the right data intelligence capabilities.”

        Sitaramesh Emani, MD
        Assistant Professor of Medicine
        Advanced Heart Failure & Cardiac Transplant
        The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

        • 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

        Capsenta Launches, Delivering Game Changing Innovation to Big Data Market, Spin Out of the University of Texas

        Patented Semantic Technology Brings Smart Data Access Across All Structured Data Without ETL; Healthcare and MedTech Company’s First Focused Verticals

        Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 30, 2015 — Capsenta, Inc., the Smart Data company, today launched its business, built on its patented UltrawrapTM technology, invented and incubated at UT Austin. Ultrawrap creates a virtualized data platform giving semantic access to all databases, spreadsheets and other data stores. Capsenta’s semantic search capability is bringing amazing value to its early adopter customers by delivering business intelligence and insights. Capsenta’s initial customers are in the healthcare and medical technology vertical, but all major industry verticals will benefit from this compelling new way to turn data into actionable intelligence simply by asking a question.

        READ MORE

        Current “Data Warehouse” and “Big Data” approaches require enterprises to invest valuable time and money to Extract (E) data from current locations, Transform (T) the data so that it is consistent and searchable, and Load (L) the data into a newly created warehouse or repository before any value can be realized. Ultrawrap is the first and only fully standards compliant software that enables data to be integrated and searched without the need to Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) disparate data into a centralized data store. Capsenta has termed this “game changing” capability NoETLTM.
        The company was founded by a collaboration between world-renown data scientists, Drs. Daniel Miranker and Juan Sequeda, and executive advisor and former director at the UT Austin Technology Incubator (ATI), Kyle Cox. The innovation is the result of research released by the UT Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) to the data scientists. In July, 2014, Capsenta recruited David Arnold, most recently VP of IT at Blue Shield of California, to be its CEO. Capsenta has since grown to a team of seven working on continuing to refine and deploy this unique technology.

        “Capsenta’s software powers the interconnectivity of disparate data sources across businesses,” said Dan Sharp, associate vice president of research and director of the UT Office of Technology Commercialization. “This technology delivers disruptive semantic web database technologies and services that improve business knowledge and efficiencies, reduces technical overhead, and demonstrates the impact of academic research and collaboration from the University of Texas at Austin.”

        Capsenta’s technology is based on its patented Ultrawrap software that compiles and integrates disparate data to create semantic graphs which dramatically improve search, analysis, and interpretation. Through Capsenta technologies, its users are accelerating data integration and search, finding better data for provider management, improving population health management, making clinical trials more efficient and effective, as some examples.

        Capsenta’s patented technology is the only complete, standards compliant turnkey solution to making existing SQL, and SQL data warehouse infrastructure, upward compatible with semantics. Semantic technologies are a combination of standards and software systems that encode and exploit meaning. The approach enables machines to share and reason with data, content and application code in a manner better understood by people. It also introduces power and efficiency into IT implementations. Semantic technologies provide an abstraction layer above existing IT technologies. With semantic technologies, adding or changing relationships among data and/or programs can be as simple as changing a shared, external, semantic model.

        The problem with traditional techniques is they often employ ETL methods that take excessive time and resources, and include hidden costs that are not apparent at the beginning of a project. Capsenta uses a NoETL approach for integrating and searching across enterprise data. In an article titled, “The True Cost of Integration in the World of BI,” David Linthicum states: “When it comes to the cost of a BI deployment, it’s not the software that will get you; it’s the miscellany — the miscellaneous integration work, in particular. ”

        “Ultrawrap is the bridge between relational database technology and semantic technology,” said Juan Sequeda, Capsenta founder and Ultrawrap inventor. “By connecting semantics with your database, you are enriching your data with extra knowledge and making it smarter. When your data is smarter, you can improve search, analysis and interpretation. Ultrawrap’s unique feature allows it to integrate data without having to go through any costly ETL processes, hence NoETL.”
