Prestigious 2013 KWorld Reality Award Recognizes NASA Safety Center for Business and Technical Excellence in Knowledge Management
McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK – January 30, 2014
Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, and Triune Group, developer of KnowledgeNow (KN) and specialists in knowledge management solutions, collaboration, research, and information technology, are pleased to announce that the joint solution developed and deployed for the NASA Safety Center (NSC) has received the 2013 KMWorld Reality award.
According to KMWorld, “This award recognizes an organization in which knowledge management is a positive reality. The recipient of the KM Reality award is an organization demonstrating leadership in the implementation of knowledge management practices and processes by realizing measurable business benefits.”
“The NASA Safety Center is a role model for the successful deployment of a robust knowledge management solution and selecting world class technologies to support the initiative,” said Douglas Brooks, President /CEO of Triune Group. “Their foresight enables them to achieve their objectives and make a positive impact in organizational performance by providing the business users with the appropriate tools to accomplish their day-to-day goals,” he concluded.
For the solution, the NASA Safety Center turned to Triune Group based on their expertise in the field of knowledge management, to replace their legacy collaboration platform. NSC’s objective was to effectively share and disseminate mission critical information and provide technical excellence.
According to a KMWorld article, “NSC chose a robust, scalable, integrated collaboration and search solution, with the unique ability to extract concepts from content, significantly improving search results. The application provides both jump-start capabilities (roadmaps/guides) and fingertip-benchmarking tools (a window on how other NASA project managers have implemented assurance processes). But more importantly, virtual collaboration enables people to connect across the enterprise who may not have engaged otherwise.
The KnowledgeNow application provides capabilities such as document management, discussion forums, wikis, blogs, program management tools and professional networking through a community of practice model, and concept search [Concept Searching’s conceptSearch] enables the discovery of internal content.”
With regard to the award, Martin Garland, President Concept Searching commented, “We knew that Triune Group and our enterprise search engine, conceptSearch, enabled the client to overachieve their objective, and it is gratifying to know that the fully deployed solution is making a difference to how the NSC can leverage their content assets to drive the mission success they were seeking.”

conceptSearch is a key component in the Concept Searching technology platform. The highly scalable search engine is not restricted to keyword identification, and compound term metadata can be automatically generated either when the content is created or ingested. The generation of metadata based on concepts extracts compound terms and keywords from a document, or a corpus of documents, that are highly correlated to a particular concept. By identifying the most significant patterns in any text, these compound terms can then be used to generate non-subjective metadata based on an understanding of conceptual meaning.
