28 Single User Taxonomy Group Subject Matter Experts Editing and Review Review and Consolidation of Feedback Feedback must be consolidated first. Review is not streamlined. The two groups are disconnected. Consolidation of input may require weeks, even months, before input is returned to the taxonomy group

30 SharePoint Taxonomy Management Export an existing taxonomy from Data Harmony into a CSV Import new taxonomy as a Term set into SharePoint Term store management Use the taxonomy for assisted searches and indexing 29

31 Automated Indexing for SharePoint User adds a document to the SharePoint space and M.A.I. attaches indexing terms to the document. A new version is saved on the SharePoint 2010 server with edited properties Batch upload documentation to SharePoint 30

32 SharePoint and Data Harmony SharePoint 2010 – Features and new additions Integration with automated indexing (M.A.I.) Search Implementation – (FAST Lucene or Perfect Search) Site management with assistance from Thesaurus Master / MAIstro. 31

33 Data Harmony Machine-Aided Indexing (M.A.I.) Automatically parses a document for taxonomy terms based on a set of user- created rules. – Is able to batch process an entire corpus of documents Suggests a list of terms based on the frequency of rules generated. Attaches suggested terms as subject metadata (indexing terms). 32

34 Incorporating Data Harmony into SharePoint Add an EventHandler to Document Library After a user uploads a file, EventHandler will send the file content to the Data Harmony server Data Harmony server creates metadata by adding suggested terms from M.A.I. SharePoint updates metadata fields 33

35 Automated Indexing for SharePoint User adds a document to the SharePoint space and M.A.I. attaches indexing terms to the document. A new version is saved on the SharePoint 2010 server with edited properties Batch upload documentation to SharePoint 34

36 Machine-Aided Indexing (M.A.I.) Automatically populate Keywords, Descriptors, Indexing terms, etc. Allow for manual review of auto- tagging for quality assurance. 35
