Concept Searching is pleased to announce the deployment of conceptClassifier for SharePoint at the Medical Council of Canada (MCC). The MCC strives to achieve the highest level of medical care for Canadians through excellence in evaluation of physicians. It assesses over 11,000 medical students and graduates each year through its examinations. Its exams are offered in both official languages in sites across Canada, and in the case of the MCCEE, in over 500 locations in 80 countries. The Medical Council of Canada wanted a solution to improve search to support their business users leveraging their SharePoint 2010 environment. Based on the results, the results were immediate enabling business users to quickly access relevant and precise information based on their search query.
Concept Searching is pleased to announce that the annual metadata survey for 2013 has been published. The SharePoint and Office 365 Metadata Survey was conducted from November 2013 to February 2014. Three hundred and ninety six unique surveys were completed by organizations that currently have one or more versions of SharePoint in use. The survey was undertaken to determine the pulse of the marketplace in regard to metadata, classification, and the use of the SharePoint Managed Metadata Services, the Term Store, and term sets to improve access to information. An additional objective was to determine the current or projected use of Office 365.
The survey itself was made available via the Concept Searching website and participants were reached via social postings and news items. The survey was not sent to the Concept Searching client base or prospects. This was done to ensure unbiased results from a random group of participants, who chose to answer the survey. Best efforts have been made to ensure neutrality in the analysis of the results of the survey and that it is void of Concept Searching product information.
Although the survey sought to determine how SharePoint organizations were using the native tools delivered via the Managed Metadata Services, on a deeper level it sought to identify what were key organizational drivers in leveraging SharePoint to develop and deploy intelligent metadata enabled solutions. Intelligent metadata enabled solutions leverage metadata to improve business outcomes. The questions covered a wide variety of probable challenges and the responses solicited provided a framework to rank those challenges organizations are seeking to transform into solutions.
Some of the results surprised the research team. Statistics generated included the highest priority being placed on applications such as text analytics and social networking, which was not expected. The more traditional applications, such as eDiscovery and legal, records management, and information governance, all garnered significant interest.
The survey is an excellent source of information on the business priorities and challenges on which SharePoint and Office 365 organizations are focusing. The results are informative and provide a broad-based view on how metadata is being used, devoid of product bias.
