Concept Searching: conceptClassifier for SharePoint
Conceptual Metadata Generation, Auto-classification, and Taxonomy Management in SharePoint
Transforming content into usable business assets requires transparent and accurate metadata tagging, the ability to classify content, and powerful taxonomy tools. Without these capabilities the inability to improve search, records management, data privacy, compliance, or any application that uses metadata prohibits the organization from improving business processes and maximizing the value of knowledge assets. These capabilities are the fundamental building blocks that transform content challenges into quantifiable business benefits. conceptClassifier is the only statistical based classification and taxonomy solution to use Compound Term Processing to automatically generate conceptual metadata as content is created or ingested. Eliminating insufficient, ambiguous, and subjective metadata coupled with auto-classification and taxonomy tools results in a proven approach to solve traditional knowledge management challenges. The robust taxonomy features expedite the development of metadata models, offer sophisticated refinement capabilities, and significantly reduce on-going maintenance.
The technologies run natively in SharePoint 2007 and 2010, FAST, Windows Server 2008 R2 FCI, and in Microsoft Office applications. The metadata can be used by any Microsoft enterprise search engine index to deliver more precise and relevant information. conceptClassifier is also used to identify and declare documents of record in SharePoint and across file shares, and tag with appropriate retention codes based on the vocabulary and specific content. Where a record refers to multiple retention policies it will automatically invoke a Content Type change that will route the record for processing appropriate to both disposition and sensitivity. This same process can be used to identify and secure confidential or sensitive information.
Founded in 2002, Concept Searching’s software products deliver conceptual metadata generation, auto-classification, and powerful taxonomy management from the desktop to the enterprise. Concept Searching is the only statistical metadata generation and classification software company in the world that uses concept extraction and compound term processing to significantly improve access to unstructured information. Headquartered in the U.K. with offices in the U.S. and South Africa, Concept Searching solves the problem of finding, organizing, and managing information capital.
