Series Discusses Metadata Management in SharePoint and Office 365
Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, is pleased to announce a new webcast series focusing on metadata management in SharePoint and Office 365. The series was developed to provide viewers with an understanding of the issues of metadata management in Microsoft products, and how to leverage the native features from a best practices point of view.
The bulk of the series is non-product related, and offers viewers an understanding of both the business and technical approaches that must be understood to fully leverage metadata in either an on-premise or a cloud environment, specifically Office 365. These webcasts fill a need in the marketplace to educate viewers on the best approaches and pitfalls relating to enterprise metadata management.
Organizations are now realizing the importance of metadata and how capture, reuse, and management can drive search, records management, security, intelligent migration, text analytics, social networking, collaboration, and eDiscovery, FOIA, and litigation support.
Concept Searching will be adding to the series on an ongoing basis. The webcasts currently available include:
