  • Search Engine Integration

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier

    conceptClassifier is platform agnostic. Automatic generation of compound term metadata, auto-classification, and taxonomy tools. Functionality is provided via the conceptClassifier platform with search engines and can perform on the fly classification with search engines calling the classify API.

    Intelligent Document Classification

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier

    Functionality is provided via conceptClassifier, 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 SharePoint, File Shares, Exchange Public Folders, and websites. All content can be classified on the fly and classified to one or more taxonomies.

    Taxonomy Management

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier conceptTaxonomyWorkflow (Optional)

    conceptTaxonomyManager has the capability to automatically group unstructured content together based on an understanding of the concepts and ideas that share mutual attributes while separating dissimilar concepts. This approach is instrumental in delivering relevant information via the taxonomy structure as well as using the semantic metadata in any business application that requires metadata. Using one or more taxonomies, unstructured content can be leveraged to improve any application that uses metadata.

    Intelligent Records Management

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier conceptTaxonomyWorkflow

    The ability to intelligently identify, tag, and route documents of record to either a staging library and/or a records management solution is a key component to driving and managing an effective information governance strategy. Taxonomy management, automatic generation of record descriptor and verbiage, auto-classification, and semantic metadata generation are provided via conceptClassifier and conceptTaxonomyWorkflow.

    Intelligent Migration

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier conceptTaxonomyWorkflow conceptSQL (Optional)

    Using conceptClassifier, an intelligent approach to migration can be achieved. As content is migrated it is analyzed for organizationally defined descriptors and vocabularies, which will automatically classify the content to taxonomies, and automatically apply organizationally defined workflows to process the content to the appropriate repository for review and disposition.

    Data Privacy

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier conceptTaxonomyWorkflow conceptSQL (Optional)

    Fully customizable to identify organizationally unique or industry standard descriptors, content is automatically meta-tagged and classified based upon the presence of the descriptors, phrases, or keywords from within the content. Once tagged and classified the content can be managed according to organizational guidelines. Includes the proactive identification and protection of unknown privacy exposures before they occur, as well as monitoring in real time as content is created or ingested.

    eDiscovery, Litigation Support, and FOIA Requests

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier conceptTaxonomyWorkflow (Optional) conceptSQL (Optional)

    Taxonomy, classification, and metadata generation are provided via conceptClassifier. This is highly useful when relevance, identification of related concepts, vocabulary normalization are required to reduce time and improve quality of search results. Taxonomies can be built on the fly and can be configured to be as granular or broad as needed. Automatically identifies the contextual and conceptual meaning of word strings in unstructured content, eliminating end user tagging. Supports navigational, location, and exploratory search.

    Text Mining and Analytics

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier conceptSQL (Optional)

    Taxonomy, classification, and metadata generation are provided via the conceptClassifier. This is useful to cleanse the data sources before using text analytics to remove content noise, irrelevant content, and identify any content that should be removed from the analysis. Taxonomies are rapidly deployed and can be as granular or broad as desired. Access to diverse repositories and environments is standard, providing a complete view of content regardless of where it resides.

    Secure Collaboration

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier conceptTaxonomyWorkflow (Optional)

    conceptClassifier can be used to protect information that should not be shared either internally or externally. It provides automatic identification of information assets relevant to the project. The additional identification of the relationships between similar topics provides the organization access to items that previously would not have been found and inadvertently shared. Rules determining information access for third parties are easily created and can prevent access, portability and transmission of unauthorized content to internal and external stakeholders.

    Compliance and Information Governance

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier conceptTaxonomyWorkflow

    Provides the ability to create rules that consist of descriptors and multi-word terms (concepts) that are associated with a compliance requirement. When content is auto-classified, it identifies the potential infraction and automatically routes the information to the appropriate staff member and can prohibit access to the record until it has been corrected. Once an infraction has been identified, it will automatically flag the record for noncompliance and disposition.

    Content Optimization

    Required Products:

    conceptClassifier

    Content Optimization is an ongoing and practical approach to eliminate content you don’t need, and perform content lifecycle management, including archive on the remainder. conceptClassifier can identify the near duplicates, documents not used before or after a specific date, search for security exposures, and the list goes on. Content Optimization is about lowering organizational risk and as content is eliminated, the appropriate owner can participate in the process.
