What is metadata?
The metadata approach organizes information by what it is versus where it’s stored, so organizations can simplify the ability to search, retrieve, process and archive documents, which in turn improves productivity, enhances employee collaboration and speeds up the decision-making process.
When compared to traditional folder-based approaches, metadata-driven search provides a vastly superior alternative to traditional folders by presenting content in “dynamic views” that are generated from metadata based on the context or need. In this way, a unique document can be found in different “locations” with no duplication of data.
The Intelligent Metadata Layer
A powerful, new metadata-based approach creates an “Intelligent Metadata Layer” that unifies multiple systems and repositories based on context, while the actual content and data remains in place, leaving existing systems and processes undisturbed.
Using artificial intelligence, information is classified and organized automatically, and the system adapts and improves over time by leveraging best-in-class analytics, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning.
