Pingar Announces Availability of Pingar Metadata Extractor for SharePoint 2010

Pingar, a provider of unstructured data management solutions, has introduced Pingar Metadata Extractor for SharePoint 2010.

Officials with Pingar said that the solution automates the assignment of metadata to documents, making it easier to search and organize large amounts of unstructured data.

“Tagging documents to assign metadata is a laborious process, and often suffers within a typical enterprise from a lack of consistency, a lack of quality, and a lack of completeness. Automatically tagging SharePoint documents with relevant metadata ensures complete, consistent information and enhances the most common searches,” said Jeff Freid, CTO, BA Insight, in a statement.

Company officials said that the Metadata Extractor for SharePoint 2010 installs directly into the SharePoint 2010 environment and can access the Pingar entity extraction API via the cloud or via an on-premise installation. The Metadata Extractor for SharePoint 2010 processes documents in a SharePoint document library and assigns metadata into the document library columns.

"By unlocking the unstructured content within documents and returning relevant keywords and business entities, Pingar helps manage the overwhelming amount of data being created by enterprises on a daily basis,” said Peter Wren-Hilton, CEO of Pingar.

According to company officials, Pingar’s API can also be integrated with an organization or industry’s proprietary taxonomies, ensuring that all applicable information is searched, saved and stored systematically. By integrating these taxonomies, Pingar customizes enterprise content management systems and maximizes return on enterprise information management investments.

Earlier in July, Pingar announced that two Pingar applications are now available in the new Microsoft (News - Alert) Office Store: Pingar Summaries App for Word 2013 and Pingar Metadata Extraction App for SharePoint 2013.

The apps, among the first third-party developed available which support Office 365, will help Word and SharePoint users increase business productivity by making it easier to find documents and information within large information stores.
