Metadata Extraction and Classification; Ontology or Statistically Derived?, by Ann Kelly

Let’s face it, if you’re like most organizations you have more data than you can manage and the amount of data flowing into your systems is increasing at a rate faster than you can handle. You’ve most likely implemented a content management system with the confidence that your problems are solved, another item checked off your list right?

Yet as you begin to organize data, your folder structures become complex. With increased document volumes, accurate and precise manual tagging and classification of your content becomes a burden and is often done in a hurried and imprecise manner (or not at all) which means that not only is it difficult to find content, but the metadata that you depend on for proper information governance is missing.

Why Enterprise Search Doesn't Work, by Charlie Holland

Basic search works by examining the text in a group of documents and building an index of their contents. Then a user comes along and queries that index using a particular word or phrase. Sounds as though it’ll do the job doesn’t it? But what if there are millions of documents which contain the same words, how do you know which document(s) have the information you’re looking for and of those, which are the most relevant? That’s where things get a bit tricky.

Why Information Managment is Important, by Jeremy Bentley

Information is the foundation of every organization. Those with accurate, reliable and timely information have an economic advantage over their competitors. Best practices, found within best-in-class organizations, dictate that information be treated in the same manner as other valuable assets and, regardless of their type, assets require careful management, thoughtful governance, and strategic consideration in their use and control.
