Convera, a provider of search and categorization software for enterprises and government agencies, has announced its new Taxonomy Workbench and five new industry-specific taxonomies. The Taxonomy Workbench is designed to help deliver more accurate search results within corporate intranets, providing geographically scattered employees access to diverse information, or on an external Web site for customer service and product information. A complete set of tools for organizing large amounts of disparate data, the Taxonomy Workbench reduces the time to build effective taxonomies. The interactive Workbench is designed for use by information managers, librarians, and subject matter experts. The new product facilitates taxonomy creation by: developing completely new taxonomies; importing existing taxonomies and thesauri; and testing, benchmarking, and tuning taxonomies and classifications.
