the RMDA have realized the value of the Smart Content Framework™ to control their content assets and maximize the value of unstructured content to meet business objectives.
McLean, VA and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB) May 07, 2012
Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, has been honored in KMWorld’s Hall of Distinction for its thought leadership in the information management and analytics industry.
Concept Searching is the only platform independent statistical metadata generation and classification software company in the world that uses concept extraction and compound term processing to significantly improve access to unstructured information.
A significant problem with unstructured content is the inability to capture meaningful metadata. This often places the burden on the knowledge professional, and it is still at best highly subjective, rendering the metadata meaningless and without context. Without the ability to identify and capture ‘concepts within content’, provide auto-classification and manage the content with powerful taxonomy tools, the improvement of search, records management, data privacy, and compliance cannot be accomplished.
To achieve this ability to manage unstructured content, a framework to incorporate the logical progression of managing these assets needs to be implemented, which Concept Searching calls the Smart Content Framework™. This approach is at its core knowledge management, but is extensible to information governance focusing on unstructured content. An Enterprise Metadata Repository is the center of the framework that enables the proactive management of content. This is an enterprise infrastructure component tightly integrated with the management of the lifecycle of content. From this, enterprise search, compliance, records management, and data privacy issues can be addressed and managed.
“The evolution of knowledge management now requires a more sophisticated approach to solve unstructured content challenges, which for many organizations is now becoming a high priority”, said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching. “The ability to integrate not only strategy, process and measurement, but also proven technology that is powerful yet flexible, is a solution that positions an organization to gain control of its unstructured content. Concept Searching’s clients, such as Market Research.com, the NASA Safety Center, OppenheimerFunds, Perkins+Will, the US Army Medical Command, and the US Army – Records Management and Declassification Agency have realized the value of the Smart Content Framework™ to control their content assets and maximize the value of unstructured content to meet business objectives,” he concluded.
