Convera Announces Taxonomy Workbench & Five New Industry Taxonomies

Convera announced Taxonomy Workbench, a complete set of tools for organizing large amounts of disparate data. Taxonomy Workbench is designed for use by information managers, librarians, and subject matter experts. The Workbench helps create an easily searched organizational structure for each organization’s own specific online public information. To leverage data organization models that are already in place, users can integrate and modify existing taxonomies or thesauri. Automated import, generation, combination and pruning wizards aid in accelerated taxonomy and classification development. Convera also introduced five new industry-specific taxonomies including Genetics, Finance & Business, General Enterprise, Technology and U.S. Government. The new Convera taxonomies are enhanced versions of taxonomies that contain a controlled vocabulary and classification structure developed by taxonomy builder ProQuest Information and Learning. The ProQuest framework for each industry-specific taxonomy enables precise mapping of data and an exact search of subject fields. Each taxonomy powered by ProQuest is regularly updated. www.convera.com, www.il.proquest.com

Xerox Integrates IBM’s DB2 Technology, Develops DocuShare Records Manager

Xerox Corporation announced it will integrate IBM’s DB2 Records Manager software into Xerox DocuShare. The integrated software, called DocuShare Records Manager, will help businesses comply with government and industry regulations, legislation and standards that relate to the safeguarding of content and documents. Documents of record can remain protected in their original DocuShare locations for ongoing access by a broad audience, or they can be moved to a central archive server for more restricted access. In all cases, once documents are declared as legal records, editing authority is granted only to designated records management administrators. Organizations already using DocuShare will need only minimal training for DocuShare Records Manager because it has the same user interface. While suitable for smaller organizations, DocuShare Records Manager can also be deployed to a large number of users and can be implemented either on the same physical server as DocuShare, or on a separate server for wider use across the enterprise. DocuShare Records Manager is expected to be available during the second half of 2004 through select Xerox resellers. www.xerox.com/docushare
