ScioSphere was a web-based text analysis tool created by Sapio Systems ApS, but neither the website for ScioSphere nor the Sapio Systems website are available.[1] A profile of Sapio Systems by Bloomberg Businessweek described how the company was founded in 2004 by Thomas Eskebæk in Denmark, and the company produced ScioShere, a "software tool designed for text analysis."[1]

Even though the website for ScioSphere is no longer available, a screenshot of the website from June 29, 2009 by the Internet Archive Wayback Machine illustrates the types of documents that the system could analyze:[2]

  • Research - Process large amounts of scientific documents.
  • Patents - Analyze large collections of patent documentation.
  • Intelligence - Analyze industries or markets.
  • Legal - Overview of relevant precedence in legal research.

The PIUG website describes how ScioSphere offered "a unique online workflow and key word reference database."[3]
