Many more types of content and information need to be governed, but the volume, velocity and variety of it makes it virtually impossible to manually maintain the all-important metadata and so automation is a critical requirement.

Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, is pleased to have co-sponsored an industry watch white paper with AIIM, entitled Automating Information Governance – Assuring Compliance. The report, released on May 20th, provides in-depth information from over 500 survey respondents on information governance and associated applications, such as data privacy and records management. The report indicates that companies are aware of the importance of information governance, yet few have chosen to actively develop and enforce an information governance plan.

According to Doug Miles, Director of Market Intelligence at AIIM, “The reality for organizations now is that many more types of content and information need to be governed, but the volume, velocity and variety of it makes it virtually impossible to manually maintain the all-important metadata and so automation is a critical requirement. We would encourage any organization to get senior buy-in around their information governance policy. It is a business issue, not an IT one, and CEOs must be aware of the requirements and the best ways of meeting those.”

Concept Searching has been focused on these challenges and has developed solutions that address information governance for the past four years. The Smart Content Framework™ was developed to provide a roadmap for organizations using Concept Searching product platforms to solve growing information governance issues, specifically in the areas of data privacy and security, records management, search, content management, eDiscovery and litigation support, and FOIA.

Concept Searching’s Smart Content Framework™ and flexible technologies result in intelligent metadata enabled solutions. Clients are able to utilize the same software to solve multiple information governance challenges. The ability to reuse the technology not only achieves the business benefits of addressing information governance but also provides clients with a long term, integrated business and technology solution that has been proven to save money and time.

“We are proud to have co-sponsored the AIIM survey”, said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching. “For the past four years we have been focused on information governance, and understand the issues clients are facing.
