Concept Searching’s Smart Content Framework™ Infrastructure Cloud Ready – Read the White Paper

Knowledge is a corporate asset. Being able to maximize its value and manage it in any environment enables relevant information to be presented to different audiences.

Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, is pleased to announce that its technologies are available on both Microsoft Office 365 Software as a service (SaaS) platform and Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform as a service (PaaS) and will be demonstrated at the SharePoint Conference 2012, November 12th-15th, in Las Vegas, Nevada, at booth 957.

Concept Searching has now deployed its technology platform on both the Microsoft Office 365 and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform, and is able to offer clients a single code base to deploy offerings with increased flexibility whilst mitigating risk. Find full details in the ‘Managing Unstructured Content in the Cloud’ White Paper.

A key new capability is the ability to deploy Concept Searching technologies in any environment and optionally simultaneously in an on-premise, cloud, or a hybrid environment. Concept Searching’s technologies provide solutions for unstructured content management challenges across heterogeneous environments. They bring the benefit of a comprehensive enterprise approach that protects, secures, and maximizes the value of knowledge assets regardless of where they reside.

“Knowledge is a corporate asset. Being able to maximize its value and manage it in any environment enables relevant information to be presented to different audiences, which effectively improves collaboration and information dissemination, and can also drive return on investment,” said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching. “We are able to provide our clients with a choice of environment, and guarantee the same functionality regardless of that environment, offering a flexible solution.”

Since Concept Searching technologies are platform independent, the integration of on-premise and cloud solutions removes many of the obstacles facing organizations. Concept Searching’s Smart Content Framework™ and technologies improve the ability to manage unstructured content in either or both environments, and address the concerns of security, compliance, privacy protection, managing big data, and synchronization of content from within the technology.

In a Web 2.0 environment, the intelligence being harnessed is unstructured. Social media applications tend to have no formal structure, are usually ad hoc, controlled by end users, and although managed for input are typically not optimized for search or for future analytics. The ability to capture key phrases, or concepts, is a valuable tool for organizations that are reaching out to diverse audiences, and would like to deploy sentiment analysis, text analytics, and real time understanding of the pulse of the their audience. This results in increased responsiveness and the ability to address comments and feedback as they arise.

Specific applications for social media applications, internally or externally, provide structure to unstructured content, such as:

  • Collaboration portals - internal, shared, external - and enhance retrieval of relevant and precise information
  • Aggregation and organization for any application that relies on documentation - training, procedures, HR
  • Gain insight through classification of blog entries to identify key trends, common threads, and pulse of audience feedback
  • Manage wikis and reduce the overhead resource to vet all entries through auto-classification and concept extraction
  • Automatically identify any type of organizationally defined confidential or privacy information before it is posted and route to an appropriate repository for disposition

And last, but not least, Concept Searching is a proud sponsor of the ‘SharePoint City’ Party, to be hosted by Axceler exclusively for attendees at the SharePoint 2012 Conference, on November 14th in Las Vegas. Excited to be a part of this community experience, the Concept Searching team looks forward to seeing its friends, customers and partners at what promises to be a spectacular event. Space is limited so attendees should register now to be part of this SharePoint experience.
