Looking for an ROI of 38% to 600%?
The role of metadata has been transformed from being an afterthought to a fundamental requirement for organizational growth, profitability, and risk reduction. The term itself is abstract and not widely understood by business users. Yet metadata has played a critical role in IT investments for many years including Knowledge Management, Data Warehousing, Data Mining, Business Intelligence, and Customer Relationship Management.
Creating metadata repositories and taxonomies that are optimized for the organization is challenging, as each participant in the process, and every end user may have a different way of expressing the same or similar descriptors (metadata). The goal is to not only to give people the right information, but distilled from a variety of distinct content making available useable knowledge. The metadata repository should serve as the common framework that delivers knowledge to end users that is pertinent to what they are seeking.
For many organizations, content exists in numerous locations and on diverse sources and data is often replicated across various silos. Most organizations face the challenge of inconsistent tagging of documents and content due to inconsistent human behavior resulting in the inability to find relevant information to support business objectives.
The business imperatives driving these issues are:
- Identification and protection of secure content assets from unauthorized access and in accordance to compliance procedures
- Increased information utilization and reduction of duplication
- Ability to find content assets that are relevant to the query
- Normalization of content across functional and geographic boundaries
- Integration with the organization’s search engine
- Elimination of costs and errors associated with end user tagging
Concept Searching provides robust and industry unique tools that help you build and maintain metadata repositories and taxonomies easily and rapidly. Reducing taxonomy development by up to 80% as compared to traditional tools and also being platform independent, you can quickly achieve your ROI. A radically different solution, the ability to manage content enables your organization to maximize your information capital to deliver business results. The technologies deliver automatic conceptual metadata generation, automated classification, and taxonomy management.
This is the key factor that extends the ability to use your metadata framework for not only improving search outcomes, but records management, compliance, governance, migration, and protection of content security assets.
