Whilst SharePoint Idol is an innovative event at SharePoint Conferences, this is the third time in twelve months that Pingar has been selected as Best New Product in Show by conference delegates.

Pingar, a leading provider of unstructured data management solutions, today announced that it had received the accolade of SharePoint Idol at the 2012 Australia SharePoint Conference held in Melbourne 20-21 March, 2012. At the conference, Pingar demonstrated its patent-pending API components to augment SharePoint's capabilities by automatically adding metadata to documents; giving organizations the ability to search, share and summarize previously unstructured data.

Peter Wren-Hilton, Pingar CEO, said, “Whilst SharePoint Idol is an innovative event at SharePoint Conferences, this is the third time in twelve months that Pingar has been selected as Best New Product in Show by conference delegates. Given the delegate mix of seasoned business leaders and SharePoint architects and developers, this represents once again a significant endorsement of Pingar’s API technology from the global SharePoint community.”

The importance of metadata lies in its role as a data management enabler of diverse business and IT processes. Metadata is the fundamental concept that enables organizations to manage big data—very large data stores that cannot be handled successfully with traditional tools. Putting Metadata Management to Work: Automated Tools that Tame the Global Data Explosion is a new resource from Pingar, describing how metadata management can help enterprises retrieve value from unstructured and semi-structured data and how commercial software can provide solutions to big data-related management problems.

The Pingar SharePoint 2010 Metadata Add-on Module uses Pingar Entity Extraction technology to enable named entities to be extracted from documents sitting inside SharePoint 2010 document sets. These entities are then automatically assigned as metadata values to the document’s metadata property fields. Pingar SharePoint 2010 Metadata Add-on Module can integrate easily into custom taxonomies, allowing enterprises to more easily find and categorize information within their SharePoint environment. Bulk processing can also be accomplished, instantly adding metadata to whole document libraries at one time.

Pingar components such as Invoice Analyser make it easy for SharePoint developers to add the ability to detect entities in invoices for metadata tagging, and automatically add consistent, content-specific metadata to documents as they are loaded into the SharePoint system. Additionally, Pingar provides image-capture solutions with the ability to instantly add metadata as documents are being scanned.

Today’s endorsement in Melbourne follows recent announcements of major API & OEM partnerships across Europe, India, Hong Kong, North America and Australasia.

Mr. Wren-Hilton, said: “By providing SharePoint IT administrators with the opportunity to assign multiple metadata values—including terms and keywords from custom taxonomies—to documents as they are scanned or via a web service, Pingar has completely revolutionised how metadata can be assigned to documents inside SharePoint 2010. Categorising and finding information is now easier than ever”.
