McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB UK) 26 September 2012

Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework, is pleased to announce that LDiscovery, a leader in end to end e-Discovery Management Solutions, has selected conceptSearch to improve findability, records management and classification of content in order to achieve more effective management of unstructured knowledge for its clients. LDiscovery will embed Concept Searchings Smart Content Framework, with its automatic metadata generation search and automatic classification technologies, into its suite of e-Discovery and forensic solutions.

Integrating conceptSearch with its existing review tool enables LDiscovery to deliver advanced searching methodologies, to provide more accurate datasets for support to law firms, corporations and government agencies. The ability to automatically generate concepts from content allows us to enhance e-Discovery and take it to a new level, in areas such as data collection and forensic investigations, Early Case Assessment, ESI processing, web based document review and production through trial support, said Brian Wolfinger, LDiscoverys Vice President of Operations and Technology. After an evaluation of technologies available, Concept Searchings technology stack offered us the most comprehensive and scalable solution for our needs.

We are delighted that LDiscovery has selected conceptSearch, with its unique, language based technology and its ability to deliver both high precision and high recall. This is particularly important for organizations that need sophisticated search and retrieval solutions. By weighting compound terms, or multi-word phrases, instead of the typical single words, or words in proximity, the retrieval experience for LDiscovery and its clients is significantly more accurate and relevant than before, said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching.

We are excited about having LDiscovery as another client joining the ranks of industry leading legal and e-Discovery firms where we have been able to solve unstructured content challenges, by leveraging our technologies abilities in classification and best terms analysis.

Going beyond a technology solution, Concept Searchings Smart Content Framework for information governance is a toolset based on conceptClassifier for SharePoint and provides the enterprise framework to mitigate risk, automate processes, manage information, protect privacy, and address compliance issues.

Underlying the Smart Content Framework, conceptClassifier for SharePoint provides the ability to transparently tag content, classify it to organizational taxonomies, preserve and protect information through the automatic identification of records and privacy data, and as a migration tool. The result is one set of technologies, running natively in SharePoint, which improves search, provides an enterprise metadata repository, automates records management, ensures compliance, protects and secures data, and facilitates migration.
