Stratify (formerly Purple Yogi) has released its family of enterprise software solutions: the Stratify Discovery System and the Stratify Classification Server.
The company says its platform automates the process of organizing, classifying and presenting unstructured text-based information. It can be embedded into existing corporate applications, such as enterprise search engines, corporate portals, news aggregation services, customer relationship management solutions, and sales force automation software, as well as content and document management systems.
Stratify reports the Discovery System software automatically organizes, classifies and presents document-based information from a variety of sources. It can either import an existing topic hierarchy or use clustering techniques to organize documents into a new, customized hierarchy. Once a hierarchy is in place, it collects text within documents of common formats (HTML, MS Word, MS PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat and plain text) from designated sources, Stratify says, including corporate repositories, intranets and external Web sites, and classifies these documents into the hierarchy using a combination of statistical, keyword and rule-based classification technologies. Using the resulting classifications, claims Stratify, the Discovery System delivers relevant documents to users by matching them to the documents they read or write and to personalized profiles based on their habits.
Using the same core technology as the Discovery System, the Classification Server allows software application developers or service providers to build products that automatically organize and classify unstructured, text-based information. The server’s classification engine can be used to enhance the performance of applications such as search engines, document and content management systems, corporate portals, and CRM and ERP applications, as well as news syndication services, says Stratify.
