Oct. 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Knowledge sharing and collaboration are essential to success, no matter what your area of business is. Lt Col David Sanchez, USAF, Deputy PM, USAF Pilot Physician Program, will follow up his keynote at KMWorld 2010 with an updated briefing, where he will share his extensive experiences on integrating secure collaboration into program management activities in the United States Air Force (USAF), at this year’s KMWorld event on November 2nd.

The leader in developing automatic conceptual metadata generation, automated classification, and taxonomy management software, Concept Searching, and its partners and customers, such as the USAF and NASA, have no fewer than 15 presentations at this year’s KMWorld. They cover topics such as Taxonomy development and management best practices, enterprise wide search deployments, SharePoint integration and knowledge driven collaboration.

A hot topic this year will be the ‘automatic application of Policies’. For two years Concept Searching has been deploying solutions that automatically apply policies, with clients using its unique technology to apply policies that drive intelligent migration, enable effective records management, identify and lock down sensitive information and enhance governance, thereby reducing risk.

Unique in its ability to integrate natively with the SharePoint 2010 Term Store, the Concept Searching platform fully supports managed metadata properties; an important point when harnessing metadata to automatically apply policies.

This topic is discussed in a thought provoking article by Concept Searching’s President, Martin Garland, focusing on why using the Term Store is so important, published recently by KMWorld Magazine

“With eight years’ experience in the metadata generation, search, classification and taxonomy management space, Concept Searching is no newcomer to the enterprise collaboration and knowledge sharing scene. When our competitors have been focusing on findability, we at Concept Searching have moved far beyond findability, enabling automatically generated metadata to drive application of policies, delivering real, hard ROI for enterprises. Our clients are now able to automatically lock down sensitive information, declare documents of record and thereby comply with federal regulations and reduce organizational risk,” said Garland. “We see our competitors talking about these topics now, in the later part of 2011. The difference is that we have been deploying these solutions since 2009.”

Part of any strategic decision to standardize on SharePoint 2010 must be to take full advantage of the Term Store - Microsoft’s building block to enable organizations to natively build taxonomy structures and facilitate content management of strategic or high value.

Concept Searching is Microsoft’s only Managed Partner within the SharePoint ecosystem delivering taxonomy management and auto-classification.
