Concept Searching Metadata Survey Results Indicate Search is Not an Information Governance Consideration

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

Drupal 7 And The Linked Data Connection: Making For Smarter Web Experiences

As Linked Data matures across the web – courtesy of efforts such as that underway by the Linked Data Platform Working Group to mandate publishing data in RDF and to use the HTTP protocol, (see our story here) – anyone running a website is going to need to know how to manage it. That, says Geoffrey Bock, principal at strategic marketing and insight services firm  Bock & Company, is going to make the popular Drupal platform for managing web content even more important.

Drupal 7 brought to the platform the ability to manage semantic metadata by incorporating RDF as a core capability, in a module that outputs RDFa. From the end user’s point of view the task of managing the metadata is made very easy through the familiar editing environment, says Bock. He will be co-hosting the session, How Drupal 7 Manages Linked Data for Smart Web Experiences, at the SemTechBiz conference in San Francisco in June. He’ll be joined by Stéphane Corlosquet, software enginner at Acquia Inc., the company co-founded by Drupal creator Dries Buytaert, which provides cloud, SaaS, and other services to organizations building websites on Drupal. Corlosquet was a critical force in bringing semantic web capabilities to Drupal’s core, with roles including being the maintainer of the RDF module in Drupal 7 a member of the Drupal security team.

Facebook’s Open Graph Continues to Surge

Sean Creeley of Embedly recently commented on the rise of Facebook’s Open Graph: “42% of all URLs that Embedly processes have one or more Open Graph tags. If you aren’t familiar with Open Graph, it’s the semantic metadata that Facebook introduced in 2010. Initially, it could only provide the title, image, and description for links and a few other objects, but it’s been extended to power pretty much every third-party application in the stream. Yes, the special sauce that allowed Viddy and SocialCam to amass millions of users in days is Open Graph.” Read more
