Concept Searching and C/D/H Form Strategic Partnership
Focus on Midwest Software and Services Solutions with Concept Searching and C/D/H Collaboration
McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK – 31st October 2016
Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, is pleased to announce that the technology consulting company C/D/H and Concept Searching have entered into a partnership agreement, developing a more strategic relationship in the Midwestern United States.
C/D/H is a Michigan-based technology consulting company, solving organizational challenges through technology in collaboration, infrastructure, unified communications, project management, mobility, and user-centric software design and development.
This arrangement brings together Concept Searching’s expertise in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management, and C/D/H’s expertise and experience in building content intelligence search platforms.
Concept Searching and C/D/H have a number of established joint client developments in the financial services, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries. A prime example of this successful collaboration was when the companies joined forces to deliver the world’s first Office 365 Hybrid Search Service Application for one of the largest global automotive parts manufacturers.
The team from C/D/H provided the knowledge, planning, optimization, and ingenuity to intelligently migrate the manufacturer’s content from on-premises Search 2013 to the Office 365 Hybrid Search platform, using Concept Searching’s new utility, conceptClassifier for Hybrid Search. The solution allows any of the 40,000 users to search 20 million documents from over 30 content sources, securely and within seconds. The solution leveraged the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, which reduced the required infrastructure tenfold, while improving performance and reducing complexity in the digital workplace.
Mark Becker, Partner at C/D/H, stated, “We are thrilled to enter into this partnership with Concept Searching. Our passion for solving search problems, combined with Concept Searching’s unique software, is a perfect fit to meet our clients’ needs. It is a win-win-win for clients, C/D/H, and Concept Searching.”
Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching, added, “C/D/H is one of our most innovative and talented partners. The combination of our unique technology and C/D/H’s expertise delivers innovative search solutions to clients. It was only natural to build on this successful teaming and to have C/D/H become a strategic partner and an extension of our sales, marketing, and service delivery capability in the Midwest. We look forward to building on solutions created with best-of-breed teams and technologies.”
