The RMDA can now easily load millions of records and automatically classify these against multiple taxonomies simultaneously, while having the ability to easily expand the system configuration through its modular and scalable architecture.

Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, along with COMPU-DATA International, LLC, provider of repository management product DigitalAsset Finder™ (DAF), has deployed Concept Searching’s conceptSearch, conceptClassifier, and conceptTaxonomyManager for the US Army - Records Management and Declassification Agency (RMDA).

As part of the office of the Administrative Assistant to the Secretary of the Army, the Records Management and Declassification Agency (RMDA) is responsible for the entire spectrum of Army-wide interrelated records management programs and associated functional automation systems which have significant interest by the Executive Branch, Congress, DoD/Army leadership, soldiers, veterans and the public.

The Joint Services Records Research Center (JSRRC) in Washington DC serves as the DoD executive agent for matters pertaining to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) claims and Agent Orange research and in support of individual veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and veterans' service organizations.

The RMDA needed easy access to millions of records for research purposes, in order to support any of the PTSD researcher’s case research and development. Classification of documents and system scalability were essential, as the broad source and range of Army records is held is many different data repositories, in many different formats.

The solution chosen by the RMDA to support PTSD research comprised Concept Searching’s conceptSearch, conceptClassifier and conceptTaxonomyManager, integrated with COMPU-DATA International LLC’s repository management product, DigitalAsset Finder™ (DAF). Built on top of Concept Searching’s enterprise technology and the DAF product, the integrated solution provides a tremendous increased capacity for accessing very large volumes of data, regardless of their location in the network.

“Using the first three building blocks of the Smart Content Framework™, Metadata, Insight and Governance, the RMDA can now easily load millions of records and automatically classify these against multiple taxonomies simultaneously, while having the ability to easily expand the system configuration through its modular and scalable architecture,” said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching. “We are delighted to have worked with business partner COMPU-DATA International, LLC and the RMDA to deliver a scalable search and information management solution to provide centralized data standardization and terabyte size data store support, resulting in increased findability and productivity.”
