What is an “ECM suite” and which approach makes the most sense?”, “The proliferation of content applications and repositories has created a huge integration challenge. How and when will this get resolved?”, “How will blog, wiki, and RSS technology affect content management applications?”, “Will taxonomies or “folksonomy” tagging technologies have a major impact on CMS applications?”, “Are Portals dead for good?”, How will open-source content management software affect future content management implementations?”, and “How will compliance requirements affect content technology, or digital/enterprise rights management products?”. The public is invited to post their own suggested questions to the panel on the Gilbane blog at . The Gilbane Conference on Content Management is being held in conjunction with Tech 2005 (formerly XML Europe). Gilbane Conference attendees will receive four free session passes to attend sessions at XTech 2005. https://gilbane.com/conferences/Amsterdam_05_program.html, ,
Teragram announced the general availability of Teragram TK240 for Collaborative Development version 2.0. This optional add-on software module, based on Teragram’s taxonomy management software and categorization engine, enables teams of specialists in an organization to collaboratively create, manage, and implement taxonomies in real time. TK240 for Collaborative Development uses Teragram’s categorization technology to analyze document contents and organize them into flat or hierarchical taxonomies that facilitate and accelerate the retrieval of information. At the same time, the software enables more than one developer to modify the taxonomy and categorization rules for the same project, enabling users to work simultaneously while individually accessing the specific portion of the taxonomy that is most appropriate. Multiple information workers using TK240 for Collaborative Development to organize large corporate archives, for instance, can work simultaneously on specialized portions of the master taxonomy without conflicting with or overwriting the other’s work. http://www.teragram.com

Verity, Inc. announced a technology alliance with A2iA Corporation. The partnership brings together two applications for automatic data capture on forms, including the recognition of cursive handwriting. Verity will offer A2iA FieldReader as an add-on recognition engine that works with Verity TeleForm 9.0 content capture software. Combining OCR, ICR and IWR in a single engine, A2iA FieldReader expands Verity TeleForm’s capabilities by enabling users to convert complex cursive, natural or freeform handwriting on paper forms into computer-useable data. A2iA FieldReader contains multiple recognition engines using artificial intelligence and neural network technology to locate, clean, de-slant and segment writing into words and characters. Because it recognizes entire words and phrases, and utilizes predefined field attributes and vocabularies, A2iA FieldReader improves overall accuracy for TeleForm users who previously could only capture data character-by-character. http://www.a2ia.com,
