Concept Searching presents Expertise in Automatic Metadata Driven Application of Policies

Automatic Application of Polices critical to dealing effectively with compliance and information governance initiatives - address the business problem and not the behavior.
By: Nicola Barnes
Nov. 1, 2011 - PRLog -- An increasing amount of unstructured and structured data presents an ongoing challenge to organizations, and the ability to apply an automatic, consistent enterprise-wide policy is a prerequisite for success.

In most organizations that use SharePoint, documents are often incorrectly located and have inappropriate metadata applied, and there are no measures to control access and rights management for individual data assets.

Content types in SharePoint 2010 enable organizations to take advantage of the workflow capabilities that can enhance organizational performance while driving down costs. The obstacle with content type application is that individuals have to decide which content type applies to every document inside SharePoint.  

Concept Searching’s contentTypeUpdater works with conceptClassifier for SharePoint to automatically apply correct content types when organizationally defined descriptors and vocabulary reside within documents. It has been designed to work with SharePoint 2010 to provide site collection administrators with the ability to automatically apply access, information management, information rights management, records management, and workflow policies.

By effectively and accurately applying policy across applications and content repositories, Concept Searching’s technology enables organizations to significantly improve their compliance and information governance initiatives.

“We are seeing a number of vendors starting to talk about these issues. The difference is that Concept Searching has been deploying these solutions for two years, and is an expert in truly effective deployments of secure enterprise collaboration and knowledge sharing,” says Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching. “Our offerings enable clients to drive down cost and mitigate risk. And in the last month alone a global financial services organization, a global life sciences organization and arguably the largest Department of Defense SharePoint implementation have chosen Concept Searching to apply metadata driven policies as an integral part of their enterprise infrastructure.”

Many offerings focus simply on findability, whereas Concept Searching’s platform moves beyond findability, enabling automatically generated metadata to drive application of policies, delivering true ROI for enterprises. Clients are able to automatically lock down sensitive information, declare documents of record and thereby comply with federal regulations and reduce organizational risk.

Garland will be co-presenting at this year’s KMWorld with Lt Col David Sanchez, USAF, Deputy PM, USAF Pilot Physician Program, who on Wednesday November 2nd will discuss his experiences of integrating secure collaboration into program management activities in the United States Air Force (USAF).

Additionally, Lt Col Sanchez will be presenting on Wednesday 2nd at 3.30pm on the subject of metadata driven application of policies delivering a secure collaborative knowledge environment, and finally, Garland will present a thought provoking briefing on Thursday 3rd at 11.45am on the subject of scalability and what that means in a secure collaborative environment.
