Intelligent Search Increases Relevant Information Access by 50%
Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, is pleased to announce that the Defence, Development Concepts and Doctrine Centre (DCDC), a Ministry of Defence (MOD) think-tank located in the UK, is using Concept Searching’s conceptSearch engine and Web-Labs’ services and software to manage an archive of military and historical documents, images and recordings.
The DCDC is required to provide research and support decisions in operational and strategic military activity. It needed exhaustive and timely access to all relevant documents in the military archive, but the archive was a classic keyword based system and therefore not intelligently searchable. Concept Searching’s conceptSearch delivered the unique industry ability to automatically generate semantic metadata through concept extraction, significantly improving search results.
According to T Longland CVO OBE, Brigadier (Retd) DCDC, “Our previous system restricted our access to the information by a factor of at least 50%. Something that would have taken weeks is now taking just a few days. Furthermore, the intelligence in the search has meant that sometimes the database will link papers that we wouldn’t have linked in a million years. I am confident that we don’t skip or ignore important information.”
“Using the first two building blocks of the Smart Content Framework™, Metadata and Insight, the DCDC benefits from implementing a framework that offers not only a robust search solution but also provides insight and delivery of relevant information to the right people,” said Martin Garland, President, Concept Searching. “We are delighted to have worked with Web-Labs and the DCDC to solve significant search challenges.
While not dedicated to the Microsoft platform, Concept Searching is Microsoft’s only Managed Partner that delivers taxonomy management and auto-classification technology integrated with SharePoint 2010 that is certified for enterprise deployment across the DoD. Clients such as the US Air Force, the US Army, and the US Army Medical Command have all selected Concept Searching as their solution to manage unstructured content,” he concluded.
