Content Collection, Email Archiving and Records Management
One segment of customers who are very interested in the value of automatic classification are compliance customers. With this in mind we've integrated the Classification Module directly into our new content collection and archiving product, IBM Content Collector. As customers use IBM Content Collector to archive their email or collect file system content, they can use the Classification Module to analyze those emails, attachments and documents and determine automatically what should be included in the repository, and how to organize it.Similarly, we've integrated the Classification Module to IBM FileNet Records Manager. Now the Classification Module, through a few simple configuration steps in our workbench tool, can be used to automatically analyze, identify and declare content as records.
By applying automated, advanced content classification methods to their information, our customers can rely upon consistent classification logic, at high levels of accuracy. And they know that their automated solution will always (happily) participate -- reducing risk and increasing the effective accuracy of the classification decision making (because what good is a human based classification approach if no one actually participates? This is a blog posting for another time). With volumes of content growing every year, automating these tasks is increasingly a necessity.
