McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, has been awarded KMWorld Trend-Setting Product of 2012 status for its Smart Content Framework™. This year, more than 700 products were assessed by the judging panel, which comprised KMWorld editors, analysts, system integrators, vendors themselves, line-of-business managers and users. All products selected demonstrate clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs that serve the vendors’ full spectrum of constituencies, especially their customers.
“Each company whose product has been selected helped to define and enhance a market critically important to our readership, by listening to and working with customers. They all represent a commitment to both innovation and their customers,” said Hugh McKellar, Editor in Chief, KMWorld Magazine.
For the past three years Concept Searching’s flagship product conceptClassifier for SharePoint has been chosen by KMWorld as a Trend-Setting product, and this year sees the Smart Content Framework™ achieve that accolade. This demonstrates Concept Searching’s growth and development, and its standing and significance in the information governance arena.
The Smart Content Framework™ was developed by Concept Searching to address the need for information governance as it applies to unstructured content, and includes and builds on the award winning conceptClassifier for SharePoint. It provides an established enterprise framework to mitigate risk, automate processes, manage information, protect privacy, and address compliance issues.
“The selection of the Smart Content Framework™ in KMWorld’s Trend-Setting Products of 2012 is a great honor for Concept Searching,” said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching, “and the award recognizes our continued investment in developing our infrastructure platform to apply intelligent metadata tagging to address a wide range of enterprise content management challenges, and utilize the strengths of the SharePoint platform to deliver real value to our clients. It is very rewarding that for the fourth year in a row, Concept Searching’s products have been recognized as best in class.”
The framework has proven to be a flexible infrastructure solution to address recurring problems for organizations from diverse industries, including the US Army, NASA Safety Center, OppenheimerFunds, Point B, Perkins+Will, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Burns & McDonnell, and MarketResearch.com.
“As our clients have implemented our technology suite to solve many and varied organizational challenges, we realized that what we solve goes far beyond delivering enhancements to enterprise search. Our clients are using the Smart Content Framework™ as a key infrastructure component in their information governance plan. Since the technologies are flexible, we are able to solve search, records management, compliance, migration, and data privacy challenges with a single solution. This leverages enterprise information assets, increases organizational performance and protects our clients’ investment in technology,” concluded Garland.
Underlying the framework are technology building blocks that provide the ability to transparently identify and tag content with semantic metadata then classify it to organizational taxonomies, aligned to business goals, enabling not only the effective management of content but also the use of metadata to drive enforcement around many information governance issues. The building blocks include: Metadata, Insight, Governance, Policy, Privacy, and Enterprise and Web 2.0.
