EMC Corporation announced a new generation of its Content Intelligence Services (CIS), EMC Documentum CIS 5.3, an add-on to the EMC Documentum 5.3 platform. EMC Documentum CIS 5.3 offers classification capabilities that can organize content based on information extraction and business rules, and categorize the content for easier navigation. Distributed competence management is a new capability to Documentum CIS 5.3 that enables customers to leverage human competence of individuals in various functions and distribute the categorization responsibilities across departments within an organization to classify content. A built-in role and user interface allows category owners or experts to manually make a classification decision in cases where the automated rules cannot classify the content with sufficient confidence. Documentum CIS 5.3 supports classification of multi-lingual content by enabling content classification in native languages against native taxonomies. Among the new supported languages are English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, and Finnish. Documentum CIS 5.3 now includes automotive, chemicals, drug and disease, energy, engineering, energy, legislation, financial, healthcare, high tech, military, and pharmaceutical industry taxonomies, and CRM, HR, IT, legal, marketing and other functional taxonomies. It also provides content classification for any text-based content type including documents, Web content, XML, OCRed images and other content types. http://www.emc.com
