|Stellent, Inc., a provider of enterprise content management solutions,
has announced the release of Stellent Content Categorizer 6.0. This new
version enables Web administrators and content contributors to automatically,
uniformly, and intelligently categorize content as it is checked into the
Stellent Content Server. Content Categorizer is based on an open architecture
that integrates with industry-leading categorization technologies to provide
maximum flexibility for customers.
Stellent Content Categorizer 6.0 automatically maps contributed content
to a metadata model and suggests appropriate metadata for that content.
According to the announcement, this automation frees users from having
to manually assign metadata to individual content items yet enables them
to review, approve, or modify the recommended metadata selections.
"Content-based applications require that content be categorized and
tagged with descriptive metadata. Yet, the volume of information and its
rate of change is too great for this to remain a manual process," said
Robert Perry, senior analyst for The Yankee Group. "By automating metadata
assignment and content categorization, software vendors like Stellent are
bringing a new level of ease of contribution and efficiency to this critical
content management function. Stellent's strategy of integrating with leading
search and categorization engines gives customers the convenience of using
the taxonomy and categorization products of their choice."
Stellent Content Categorizer 6.0 also provides the following:
An interactive check-in process for content contributors
A batch-categorization process to immediately extract metadata for thousands
The ability to re-categorize subsections or the entire repository of managed
content by refining the taxonomy
The ability to automatically assign metadata values to existing content
in the repository when new metadata fields are added to the system
An open-application programming interface and documentation to allow third-party
classification or categorization engines to easily integrate with the Stellent
The ability to import and navigate through the defined taxonomy within
the Stellent Content Server interface
