WAND Taxonomy Library Now Part of Smartlogic Semaphore Cloud

WAND Pre-built Taxonomies and Smartlogic Semaphore Cloud together is the fastest way for companies to begin tagging enterprise content.

Denver, CO, USA --- WAND, Inc., the world’s leading taxonomy provider, and Smartlogic, the Content Intelligence Company, today announced a partnership that will make the WAND Taxonomy Library available to users directly within Semaphore Cloud.

Companies can add WAND Taxonomies to a Semaphore Cloud subscription directly within the application and immediately begin to use those taxonomies in the Semaphore Cloud hosted environment. WAND Taxonomies can be customized using Semaphore Cloud taxonomy management to tailor them for the specific needs of any company. Pre-built taxonomies dramatically reduce the time and expense of developing an enterprise taxonomy model from scratch.

WAND Taxonomies are available for every major industry vertical and have been enriched with additional synonyms and relationships specifically for Semaphore Cloud Content Classification Server so the automatic classification can be started almost immediately.

Semaphore Cloud works with all major cloud content management services and integrates with on-premise Semaphore installations in hybrid deployments.

According to Mark Leher, WAND’s COO, “The combination of WAND Taxonomies and Semaphore Cloud makes it easier and faster than ever for companies to begin enriching content with taxonomy and metadata.” Leher continued, “The barriers of installing software on premise and then creating a taxonomy from scratch – things which have previously caused significant delays to enterprise content management projects - have been completely eliminated.”

Jeremy Bentley, CEO Smartlogic said “We’re pleased to partner with WAND, the premier source for industry, business and specialty domain taxonomies. Our partnership lets customers accelerate the model building process using a WAND Taxonomy as a starting point and then including concepts that address the unique aspects of their business.”
