conceptClassifier is Concept Searching’s technology platform deployed in a non-SharePoint environment using our published API’s. The technology is used in a heterogeneous environment and the API’s are provided to supply the automatically generated semantic metadata to any search engine index to enable concept based searching. The API’s are also used to integrate with any other system or application that uses metadata, such as content management systems and applications such as records management, data protection, and migration.
The conceptClassifier platform is based on our Smart Content Framework™ for information governance and incorporates best practices for developing an enterprise framework to mitigate risk, automate processes, manage information, protect privacy, and address compliance issues. Underlying the framework is the technology to:
- Automatically generate semantic metadata
- Auto-classify content from diverse repositories
- Easily develop, deploy, and manage taxonomies
The framework is being used to enable Intelligent Metadata Enabled Solutions to improve search, records management, enterprise metadata management, text analytics, migration, enterprise social networking, and data security.
Incorporating our industry recognized Smart Content Framework™ and our intelligent metadata enabled solutions, conceptClassifier provides the technology for organizations who want to implement automatic semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management, in a non-SharePoint environment.

|Base Components in conceptClassifier Platform
Both automated and manual classification is supported to one or more taxonomies.
This is an advanced enterprise class, easy-to-use taxonomy development and management tool. conceptTaxonomyManager is a robust and powerful taxonomy management tool that is still unique in the industry. Developed under the premise that a taxonomy solution should be used by business professionals, and not IT or librarians, the end result is a highly interactive and powerful tool that has been proven to reduce taxonomy development by up to 80%.
Licensed for the sole use of building and refining the taxonomy the engine provides automatic semantic metadata generation that extracts multi-word terms or concepts along with keywords and acronyms.
Typical Recommended Base Configuration
The technology supplied in the base conceptClassifier platform includes the automatic semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management. The key advantage of the software is to deploy once and use multiple times to solve varied challenges. The key applications deployed by our clients are listed below.
Search Engine Integration
Functionality is provided via the conceptClassifier platform with search engines and can perform on the fly classification with search engines calling the classify API. Search engine support includes SharePoint, the former FAST products, Solr, Google Search Appliance, Autonomy, and IBM Vivisimo.
Required Products: conceptClassifier Platform
Intelligent Document Classification
Functionality is provided via the conceptClassifier Platform, to classify documents based upon concepts and multi-word terms that form a concept. Automatic and/or manual classification is included. Knowledge workers with the appropriate security can also classify content in real time. Content can be classified from diverse repositories including File Shares, Exchange Public Folders, and websites. All content can be classified on the fly and classified to one or more taxonomies.
