Make Content Findable

Auto-Classify Content Accurately

Automatically Generate MetaData For Findability

Metadata is critical in making content findable. BA Insight’s Classification software uses text analytics to create metadata, leveraging SharePoint’s Managed Metadata Service (MMS). Learn more about how to use SharePoint metadata to make content findable.

Key capabilities:


assigns concepts from a taxonomy or ontology to content automatically, providing high quality, consistent metadata. Content is tagged based on clear rules that are easy to understand and manage; rules are automatically generated and also provide very precise control. For example: content can be tagged when it matches particular concepts and also has specified metadata; matching can be hierarchical to disambiguate terms that may have different meanings in different contexts.

Automatic Content Types

designates a content type to a document. For example, if documents have the term "invoice" in them, you can set the content type to "Invoice" using Automatic Content Types. This also helps in maintaining governance and compliance by ensuring proper use of content types.

Entity Extraction

recognizes terms, phrases and regular expressions within content and assigns them to a managed property or managed metadata column. You can extract, for example, part numbers, project names, or customer names from a document. This can also be used for detection of PII, or for similar compliance and content auditing applications.

Smart Tagging

uses a rules-based approach, with a powerful yet familiar full-text query language complete with Boolean, proximity and fielded search capabilities. There are no ‘black box’ algorithms, so you can understand and control how content is enriched and classified.  Rule generation is scriptable and starts with intelligent defaults, minimizing the effort needed to maintain rules. A Test Bench lets you preview categorization results in real time against your documents.

Taxonomy Management

create and modify multiple taxonomies or ontologies, with drag-and-drop simplicity for rearranging categories and editing category rules. Taxonomy information is stored and managed in the native SharePoint format, while also being enhanced with new features to allow auto-tagging. You can import and export taxonomies from industry formats such as SKOS, RDF, CSV, and the SharePoint term store interchange format, so you have the flexibility to use other taxonomy and ontology tools in combination with the BAI Software Portfolio.

DataSet Connectors

connect to external systems or processes and enrich content by adding relevant metadata and/or normalizing terms. For example, people names can be matched to a master directory using a fuzzy match, so that misspellings can be cleaned up and different name formats can be normalized. Custom dataset connectors can be built to any enrichment process, for example domain-specific processing to recognize chemical names, protein sequences, etc.


supports complex content and metadata gathering using familiar VBscript. You can solve the trickiest problems most demanding scenarios; modify content, metadata, and mappings in any way desired, and combine multiple metadata fields together using scripting.

Automatic Property Mapping

removes the effort of assigning source system metadata field names to crawled properties and managed properties and maintaining these associations. You can also script or manually assign names and associations, giving you precise control when you need it. Smart Mapping includes dataset connectors, scripting, automatic property mapping, and more to provide sophisticated content enrichment. Metadata can be created and mapped based on other metadata – giving you the ability to flag content flexibly according to the needs of specific groups.  For example, you can create a tag that indicates that an organization or project spans multiple countries and has more than a specified number of people associated with it.
