conceptCEWS for SharePoint

Content continues to grow exponentially. There are a myriad of ways that this growth impacts business performance unless it is proactively managed. One of the issues is the continual degradation of search. The impact of poor search is immediate and impacts productivity, decision making, speed to market, sales, and customer support. For years, it has been virtually ignored. The time has come when search results do matter.

The Content Enrichment Web Services (CEWS) is a content processing framework for search that supports both Content Enrichment Web Service (CEWS) in SharePoint 2013/2016 and the Pipeline Extensibility feature in FAST Search for SharePoint 2010. Using CEWS, custom processing of documents occurs as they are indexed. conceptClassifier for SharePoint’s automatically generated multi-term metadata is classified providing rich compound terms to the search engine index. The resulting classifications are stored directly in the search index and are available in the SharePoint search refinement panel as navigational aids.
