Feb. 24, 2011 - PRLog -- Concept Searching, developers of concept based search, semantic and compound term metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software has been named for the third year in a row to the 2011 KMWorld’s 100 ‘Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management’.  

The list, in its eleventh year, is compiled by KM practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors and their customers and colleagues.  In the selection of the companies to the list Hugh McKellar, Editor in Chief of KMWorld stated, “Concept Searching’s inclusion on the list is based on the breadth and impact of its innovations to meet specific customer needs while adding true value to its entire chain of constituencies.”

Utilizing Concept Searching’s unique open conceptual tagging framework, the core technologies deliver a set of outcomes that are not achieved by any other solution.  The open conceptual tagging framework means that Concept Searching’s statistical engine can understand, out-of-the-box, the incremental value of keywords, multi-word fragments, and compound terms and as a result identify concepts resident within an organization’s own information repositories that are highly correlated to particular topics.  With the identification of these highly correlated topics in the form of keywords, multi-word fragments and compound terms the result is automatically generated metadata that is unique to that particular organization’s corpus of information.  Coupled with auto-classification and powerful enterprise taxonomy management the innovative technologies improve a wide range of business processes within an organization.

The products are currently being used by clients as an Enterprise Search, Classification, and Taxonomy Solution; as a Call Center tool; to identify unknown Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Protected Health Information (PHI) data exposures; in Records Management; in eDiscovery and litigation support; and Enterprise 2.0.  The software is fully integrated with Microsoft™ SharePoint but utilizes SOA compliant web services architecture to support applications developed on any platform.

“We are honored to be recognized by our industry peers as a leader in delivering Knowledge Management solutions.  Managing knowledge assets and maximizing the inherent value of content to drive business efficiencies is increasingly challenging for many organizations.  Our ability to generate concepts as opposed to traditional single word classification creates more accurate metadata that can be deployed in a variety of scenarios to deliver business value,” said John Challis, CTO/CEO.  “To be acknowledged as a software company that can help organizations solve these challenges is very rewarding.”
