McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, is pleased to announce that OppenheimerFunds, one of the nation’s largest and most respected investment management companies, has selected conceptClassifier for SharePoint, to improve search, classify content and manage the content to achieve more effective management of unstructured knowledge assets across the enterprise.
OppenheimerFunds is standardizing on Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and FAST Search across the enterprise. Working with Project Performance Corporation (PPC), a Concept Searching Partner, OppenheimerFunds evaluated several solutions. They selected conceptClassifier for SharePoint because of its ability to meet their requirements. Their key requirements were the ability to tag unstructured content, manage the content through taxonomies, and have a tool that integrated natively with the SharePoint 2010 term store and was capable of using metadata to drive migration from file shares to SharePoint 2010.
“We are delighted that OppenheimerFunds has selected conceptClassifier for SharePoint. They were very thorough in the selection process, and their requirements were very explicit and well thought out,” said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching. “We are pleased that conceptClassifier for SharePoint was selected based on its ability to address all of their needs. We look forward to having OppenheimerFunds as another client for whom we have been able to solve unstructured content challenges.”
Going beyond a technology solution, Concept Searching’s Smart Content Framework™ for information governance is a toolset based on conceptClassifier for SharePoint and provides the enterprise framework to mitigate risk, automate processes, manage information, protect privacy, and address compliance issues. Underlying the Smart Content Framework™, conceptClassifier for SharePoint provides the ability to transparently tag content, classify it to organizational taxonomies, preserve and protect information through the automatic identification of records and privacy data, and as a migration tool. The result is one set of technologies, running natively in SharePoint, that improves search, provides an enterprise metadata repository, automates records management, ensures compliance, protects and secures data, and facilitates migration.
“The unique quality of our Smart Content Framework™, coupled with our technology, allows clients to address specific challenges they are trying to solve. In the case of OppenheimerFunds, they are implementing two of the initial building blocks of the framework for information governance, including metadata management and insight for search,” said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching. “conceptClassifier is unique in the industry as it can address a wide range of challenges facing organizations. As our clients solve initial challenges, such as search insight and management of unstructured content, they can use the same technology to improve records management, compliance, and data privacy and security issues with the same technology in the future.”
