  17. 17. Manual Tagging is a Behavior Modification Problem conceptClassifier automates the tagging process to remove the behavior modification problem of manual tagging for Governance, Findability and Migration • conceptClassifier increases productivity, improves ‘Findability’, automates ‘Governance’, migrates content • Organizes intellectual assets and provides a factor of improvement for end users to find company information with an automated tagging approach for any search platform • Improves ability to target content through EMM/TS with 2013 Search and SharePoint 2010/2013 • Improves SharePoint Portal Adoption • Aligns content with governance polices and federally mandated requirements • Intelligently migrates content into and out of SharePoint • Mitigates Risk • Reduces federal governance, corporate information policy, and personally identifiable information exposures while improving eDiscovery audit capabilities and ensuring alignment with content retention policies • Lowers Cost of Administration • Leverages native integration to Microsoft stack, manages migration of GUIDS • Lowers cost of ownership to build out and administer EMM/Term Store • Intelligent content migration • Intuitive user interface for easy product adoption
  18. 18. A Manual Metadata Approach Will Fail 95%+ Of The Time Issue Organizational Impact Inconsistent Less than 50% of content is correctly indexed, meta-tagged or efficiently searchable rendering it unusable to the organization. (IDC) Risky 59% of middle managers miss valuable information every day because they can’t find it or never see it (Accenture) Cumbersome - expensive Average cost of manually tagging one item runs from $4 - $7 per document and does not factor in the accuracy of the meta tags nor the repercussions from mis-tagged content. (Hoovers) Malicious compliance End users select first value in list. (Perspectives on Metadata, Sarah Courier) No perceived value for end user What’s in it for me? End user does not see value for organization nor risks associated with litigation and non- conformance to policies. Less than 14% of end users receive training. (AIIM) What have you seen Metadata will continue to be a problem due to inconsistent human behavior. The answer to consistent metadata is an automated approach that can extract the meaning from content eliminating manual metadata generation yet still providing the ability to manage knowledge assets in alignment with the unique corporate knowledge infrastructure. Manual Approach Leads to Failure

  20. 20. Benefits • Reduce costs, risks, and time associated with information governance, records management, data privacy, and government mandates • Improve information governance - find trusted and relevant information on health and safety, asset maintenance, compliance guidelines • Effective content identification and classification, regardless of content location in the enterprise • Eliminate the error and cost burdens of identification and management of records • Document knowledge in the context of business process to create tangible knowledge assets • Increase the quality of information for decision making • Automatic migration of content driven by classification of metadata
  21. 21. • Metadata driven application and enforcement of policies - conceptClassifier has been deployed since 2003 to automatically generate metadata and use that metadata to apply and enforce policies. Most clients are using the platform to support their information governance strategy. • Proven, mature functionality out of the box - The platform has been deployed in numerous sites and applications across the enterprise, including SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013, Office 365, Documentum, Hummingbird, SQL Server, Oracle, File Shares, and web sites. Smart Content Framework™ Getting It Right
  22. 22. • Concept Searching’s statistical concept identification underpins all technologies • Multi-word suggestion is explicitly more valuable than single term suggestion algorithms • conceptClassifier will generate conceptual metadata by extracting multi-word terms that identify ‘triple heart bypass’ as a concept as opposed to single keywords • conceptTaxonomyManager uses statistical concept identification to provide real-time feedback during the process of building, testing, refining, and deploying taxonomies • Metadata can be used by any search engine index or any application/process that uses metadata. Concept Searching provides Automatic Concept Term Extraction Triple Baseball Three Heart Organ Center Bypass Highway Avoid Industry Unique Technology
