Concept Searching

McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB) March 03, 2014– Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, has completed its annual SharePoint Metadata Survey and based on responses although search is important, it is not viewed as a key component in Information Governance.


The Concept Searching second annual survey was completed by close to 400 organizations using SharePoint and the objective was to determine how organizations are using metadata and/or the SharePoint Term Store to manage unstructured content. The survey questions sought to solicit feedback on how, or if, organizations were using metadata to drive applications such as search, records management, protection of privacy and confidential information, migration, and to a lesser extent applications such as text analytics, collaboration, and social content. The white paper containing the detailed results will be published in late March. Read more
