“Our TopBraid EVN Tagger brings structure to unstructured data,” said Irene Polikoff, CEO and co-founder of TopQuadrant. “This along with the flexibility of TopBraid EVN will allow this organization to provide better, more relevant search and content navigation.”
TopBraid EVN is a flexible, web-based system for managing semantic information models. It supports business stakeholders who need to collaborate on defining and linking enterprise vocabularies, taxonomies, thesauri and ontologies used for information integration, navigation and search. TopBraid EVN lets organizations create, connect and use:
- Taxonomies – Vocabularies that are based on SKOS, the W3C standard for managing taxonomies and thesauri. These information models contain hierarchies of terms connected using broader/narrower relationships. In addition to standard SKOS attributes, they can contain custom attributes and relationships.
- Ontologies – Non-SKOS-based vocabularies. Some may contain schema-level information only—that is, definitions of classes and properties. Other ontologies may also contain instances of classes. Instance data can be hierarchical, but these hierarchies use custom relationships such as “part of” instead of broader/narrower. Using “include,” one can combine ontologies with SKOS-based taxonomies.
- Content tag sets – Datasets that link information in one dataset with the information in another one. Typically, one of the datasets is a vocabulary whose values are used to tag information in another dataset. The dataset containing items to be tagged is often a view into a content management repository such as Microsoft SharePoint.
