TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions for the Enterprise, today announced that its Luxid for SharePoint 2013 integration will become commercially available as of today. Luxid for SharePoint 2013 is an integration of TEMIS’ flagship Luxid Content Enrichment Platform into SharePoint 2013.

Based on patented and award-winning technology, Luxid Content Enrichment Platform is a powerful and scalable content enrichment solution that natively supports 20 languages and exploits specialized engines called Skill Cartridges to automatically extract relevant topics, entities, facts, sentiments, or categories from documents and generate rich metadata. This semantic metadata, stored in SharePoint 2013 columns, is then freely available for use by any application, opening new perspectives for content management, archival, business process automation, analytics and search. Luxid includes a library of off-the shelf Skill Cartridges that address areas of recurring interest, as well as a suite of productivity tools that help customize them and create new ones that are relevant to customer business areas.

“This second-generation integration will help enable our customers to deploy semantic enrichment industrially on their SharePoint 2013 farms”, said Michaël Domanski, Alliances and Channel Manager, TEMIS. “The domain-specific metadata produced by Luxid is now available for search services, for the Term Store as well as the entire application layer.”

Luxid for SharePoint 2013 is a second-generation integration that builds on the same foundations as the TEMIS’ Luxid for SharePoint 2010 integration, with significant extensions in key functional areas based on customer feedback:

Seamless integration with SharePoint 2013
Luxid for SharePoint 2013 is a server application that is seamlessly accessed through Web Services, reads documents, extracts relevant metadata based on their Content Type and feeds it into the corresponding SharePoint 2013 columns. This alleviates end-user manual contribution efforts and enhances the quantity and quality of metadata. Depending on governance policies, metadata may remain accessible for end user modification thanks to habitual SharePoint 2013 views.

Industrial configuration and deployment
Thanks to a rich set of configuration interfaces, all relevant Luxid content enrichment service parameters – such as Content Type definitions, corresponding Managed Metadata and Managed Properties – can be configured through Luxid for SharePoint 2013 menus, streamlining to a matter of minutes the mechanics of deployment to an entire SharePoint 2013 farm. Luxid for SharePoint 2013 also preserves the history of manual metadata modifications for audit purposes.

Advanced Term Store integration
Luxid for SharePoint 2013 enables full, two-way integration with the SharePoint Term Store. When implemented in the context of a closed Term Set, Luxid applies the Term Set to content, enabling precise institutional governance over – managed – metadata through an Enterprise taxonomy. In the case of open Term Sets, Luxid identifies concepts beyond a pre-ordained list, as they appear in the content, a process that supports the enrichment or feeding of an enterprise taxonomy based on actual enterprise content.

Native application integration
Stored in SharePoint columns, the metadata produced by Luxid for SharePoint 2013 becomes natively accessible to any application – in particular for content management, business process automation, information access or analytical tasks. As an example, exploiting Managed Properties or Managed Metadata, any SharePoint 2013 search service may seamlessly index this metadata and present rich faceted navigation interfaces structured according to end-users’ enterprise taxonomy. Other features that can be built include contextual navigation, content recommendation engines and analytical widgets.   

Luxid for SharePoint 2013 will be made available through TEMIS directly and its network of partners and system integrators as of today.
