Concept Searching Article on the Importance of Metadata in SharePoint and Office 365
Concept Searching is pleased to announce the publication, in the KMWorld Best Practices in Enhancing SharePoint White Paper, of the article ‘Don’t Enhance SharePoint – Transform it through Metadata.’
Metadata is, and has been for some time, the source of business challenges impacting search, eDiscovery, records management, data security, migration, social tagging, collaboration, and text analytics. SharePoint does not provide the ability to generate metadata, nor classify it to the Term Store.
This article, based on the results of a Concept Searching ‘SharePoint and Office 365 Metadata Survey’, offers a unique view on how SharePoint organizations are using, and would like to use, SharePoint and Office 365. Organizations are looking to solve business problems and the crux of these problems is metadata. Achieving organizational objectives and transforming SharePoint into a solid business solution delivering quantifiable business results is unobtainable until metadata generation and management are addressed.

How to Get Started and Why: Information Governance for SharePoint and Office 365 Webinar on August 19th
Concept Searching is hosting the webinar, ‘How to get started and why: Information Governance for SharePoint and Office 365,’ on Tuesday, August 19th at 11:30am-12:30pm EDT.
Information Governance is a popular topic in the press, but presents very real challenges to SharePoint and Office 365 organizations that would like to implement it. The recent AIIM survey, ‘Automating Information Governance – Assuring Compliance,’ co-sponsored by Concept Searching, showed that only 10% of organizations have a workable Information Governance policy.
This webinar is highly recommended for those who are responsible for any aspect of Information Governance, or would like to learn more about the topic. Attendees will take away an understanding of the business challenges, the justification and ROI, and the technology issues that need to be answered, even if approaching Information Governance a step at a time. The audience will learn, from a best practices perspective, how to develop a framework for Information Governance that can be accomplished incrementally.
