HTML, or hypertext markup language, was a remarkable breakthrough that led to the widespread promulgation of the world
wide web (WWW). What was ingenious was its simplicity and universality. The new territory of cyberspace became a land
rush of web development and technologies designed to exploit the new terrain.
A whole panoply of browsers were developed, as well as new search engines for cataloging and finding the vast quantities
of information now being deposited on the Internet. The power of search was impressive, but with increased quantities
of data and the varied forms in which it was being presented, it created limitations for utilizing the actual text and
data found on the web.
In recent years new kinds of technologies have evolved in order to scrape data from the web and re-assemble it in timely,
useful forms. Mozenda is one of the companies which has developed a proprietary screen scraping tool
which not only scrapes HTML, but also scrapes website text, downloads images, and repackages/formats the data into CSV or XML
turning a target website into a virtual data feed.
Mozenda makes an HTML Scrape Easy
The purpose and intent of web scraping is to simulate the human browsing experience by replicating
computer commands to browse, search, navigate, and ultimately extract specific data fields from a
web page. The benefit and value of web scraping lies in the automation of the data collection and
the transformation of the data itself from an unstructured format to a structured format such as
CSV, TSV, or XML where it can be uploaded, stored and analyzed.
Mozenda is a Software as a Service (SaaS) company that enables users of all types to easily and affordably extract and manage web data. With Mozenda, users can set up agents that routinely extract data, store data, and publish data to multiple destinations. Once information is in the Mozenda systems users can format, repurpose, and mashup the data to be used in other online/offline applications or as intelligence. All data in the Mozenda system is secure and is hosted in class A data warehouses but can be accessed over the web securely via the Mozenda Web Console. With the addition of a fully featured REST API, Companies can now seamlessly integrate their data automation with the Mozenda application.
