The SharePartXXL Taxonomy Extension for WSS/MOSS now integrates Expert System’s Cogito Categorizer to enable knowledge management for SharePoint-based portals:
SharePartXXL integrates Cogito Categorizer, an innovative semantic solution for the automatic classification of information developed by Expert System, leading provider of semantic software, which discovers, classifies and interprets text information. By way of the automatic semantic analysis of the content Cogito Categorizer automatically classifies with high precision large volumes of documents based on the main topic, enabling knowledge workers a more effective way to retrieve relevant information. Integrated in the SharePartXXL Taxonomy Extension for Microsoft SharePoint this categorizer now can be used to enable Knowledge Management in SharePoint portals based on WSS and MOSS.
SharePoint technology is increasingly being used by companies and organizations, especially to simplify browser based collaboration with Microsoft Office over the Internet. With the fast growing amount of collaboration data, the need for additional features to quickly access information items and documents has never been greater.
By far the most common and effective method of finding information is browsing structured classification systems, so called taxonomies, by different navigations. With the SharePartXXL Taxonomy Extension additional navigations, e.g. category trees, A-Z directories, tag clouds, related links or category search can be used to organize documents and list items in a SharePoint-based portal cross-site as part of a connected content network and knowledge model.
The tagging process now can be greatly improved by using the Expert System's Cogito Categorizer to assign with precision and to any kind of text, one or more categories depending on the content. The semantic analysis of contents enables the automatic generation of the metadata map, facilitating a simpler retrieval in the next phase of search.
With the SharePartXXL Taxonomy Extension for Microsoft SharePoint integrating the Cogito Categorizer the WSS/MOSS-based portal becomes a place to share knowledge as well as content.
"We will offer Cogito Categorizer worldwide as part of our solutions in order to support our customers with innovative and proven technology" explains Thomas Boenisch, Managing Director of SharePartXXL. "With Expert System we found a local European partner with a long and successful track record in supplying text analysis solutions to both larger enterprises and software vendors."
Luca Scagliarini, VP Strategy and Business Development of Expert System, adds "We are very pleased to have SharePartXXL joining our partner network. It will allow us to extend the application of semantic technology to innovative solutions based on Microsoft .NET for the Central European market. We look forward to a mutually beneficial cooperation."
