Matching: discovery X
For many organizations, the growing impact of litigation is rapidly becoming one of the most critical issues facing business, reverberating from the legal team through the CEO’s office. With the December 2006 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) accelerating a climate of increased regulatory and compliance requirements, organizations face substantial cost in complying with litigation discovery requirements. At the same time as electronic information and communication are exploding in usage, compliance and discovery requirements are demanding increased discipline in retaining, tracking, discovering and managing all electronic information – challenging even for the most advanced corporate information infrastructures. Worse, organizations are confronted with significant risk, fines and negative public exposure should they lose or mishandle electronic evidence for a case.

IBM announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned IBM in the Leaders Quadrant of its new Magic Quadrant for Information Access Technology*.
Information access technology includes enterprise search software, as well as other software used for content classification, content analytics, categorization, fact and entity extraction, and taxonomy creation and management that make it easier for people to find and use information buried within content and across organizations.
Positions in the Quadrant is based on the combination of its product capabilities, market performance, customer experience and overall vision, according to Gartner.
“IBM's search and content discovery portfolio is helping enterprise customers do more than gather simple search results. Our technology enables them to use information to solve complex business problems by combining advanced analytics, content classification and search capabilities with software, hardware and services," said Ken Bisconti, vice president strategy, IBM Enterprise Content Management Software. "We're pleased that Gartner has placed us in the Leaders Quadrant, which we believe is recognition of IBM's ability to deliver comprehensive information access capabilities to customers via a broad spectrum of offerings built upon more than 10 years of research and development and work with customers worldwide.”
IBM’s portfolio of enterprise search and content discovery software supports the company’s global Information on Demand initiative which is helping clients of all sizes overcome barriers to using information as a strategic asset. IBM’s offerings extend from scaleable, highly secure OmniFind enterprise search, information classification, extraction and analysis software, to the no-cost IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition offering, an enterprise search product developed to eliminate financial and technology barriers to entry-level file and intranet enterprise search.
With its comprehensive approach to enabling enterprise search and content discovery, IBM is delivering new levels of business insight through advanced secure semantic search and rich content mining and visualization. IBM’s software offerings are enabling organizations to improve access to information, gain new business insight, and create new opportunities for the use of information no matter where it is found. The software is based on the Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA) standard to provide an open architecture for connecting applications for entity extraction and text analytics.

Simple keyword or text search is not always effective for quickly finding what you need. IBM® has gone beyond keywords by inventing a fast and accurate semantic search system for personal e-mail.
IBM OmniFind Personal E-mail Search enables semantic searching by extracting and organizing concepts and relationships from personal e-mail. Any business e-mail user who must search in order to accomplish a business purpose will find this tool invaluable. Customization of semantic concepts and the ability to share these concepts with colleagues make this tool especially useful for large enterprise customers.
IBM OmniFind Personal E-mail Search is easy to install and configure and automatically adjusts to desktop load. Users simply type keywords to express their queries. The tool intelligently matches these queries against pre-defined concepts (such as persons, phone numbers, addresses, or schedules) and relationships amongst such concepts (such as a person's phone number or address). In ambiguous situations, the intelligent search engine will interact with the user in order to determine the user's true intention.
Users can create new concepts using the tagger utility and thereby customize their semantic search. Both system tags and user-defined tags are searched during run time.
The tagger utility also enables users to easily share taggers, thereby promoting community search efficiency and cooperation while keeping their e-mail private.

Some analysts estimate that the volume of “unstructured” content – email, presentations, contracts, forms, etc. – will nearly double on a year-to-year basis. If you're having trouble locating information now, what will it be like going forward? IBM Classification Module not only accurately and automatically organizes your information so that it is more readily accessible, but also helps reduce your risk and costs.
This Illustrated demo shows how the IBM Classification Module automatically catalogues your information so that it can be found easily and logically. It can classify new information as it is brought in, or it can sort through content that is already under management.
