McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB) September 17, 2012
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 the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO), the UK government department responsible for promoting British interests overseas and supporting UK citizens and businesses around the world, has selected conceptSearch and conceptClassifier for SharePoint.
“We are delighted that the Foreign & Commonwealth Office has selected conceptSearch and conceptClassifier for SharePoint, which will provide excellent automatic tagging and classification for its large document repositories,” said Paul Billingham, General Manager of Concept Searching. “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 the FCO, it intends to implement two of the initial building blocks of the framework: Metadata to enable the proactive management of content and development of taxonomies, and Insight to rapidly find relevant information for search transparency,” he concluded.
conceptSearch has a unique, language based technology and the ability to deliver both high precision and high recall. This is particularly important for organizations that need sophisticated search and retrieval solutions. By weighting compound terms, or multi-word phrases, instead of the typical single words, or words in proximity, the retrieval experience is extremely accurate and relevant.
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, which improves search, provides an enterprise metadata repository, automates records management, ensures compliance, protects and secures data, and facilitates migration.
