View From the Top by Jay Ven Eman, CEO and Marjorie M.K. Hlava, President
Access Innovations began like many entrepreneurial enterprises—with a great idea, a few energetic people, and a little bit of capital. Incorporated in October 1978, the company’s first headquarters was the kitchen of President Marjorie M.K. Hlava’s Albuquerque home. The original product was to be a database of solar energy information and resources. It soon became clear, however, that the database building process was of more value to potential customers than the database itself.
“Over the past 35 years, we’ve helped a lot of prestigious companies build their databases, knowledge management systems, and intranets,” says Jay Ven Eman, CEO. “We’ve worked on projects from huge SGML-based corporate intranets to sole proprietors’ customer records. We avail ourselves of every conceivable software, and we’ve converted data on nearly every platform. It’s been very exciting, yet in some ways I feel like this is just the beginning.”
Access Innovations stays on the cutting edge of knowledge management by continuously adding new services based on client needs and industry demands through implementation of more than 2,000 engagements. The services of the company now include a complete line of information management support services and the award-winning Data Harmony software suite.
The Data Harmony software suite provides knowledge management solutions to organize information resources, based on a well-built and systematically applied thesaurus. Data Harmony’s software tools enable construction of a logical framework of topics, reflecting the vocabulary of businesses or subject areas—and then apply these topic terms to resources precisely and consistently.
Data Harmony software integrates with numerous content management systems, exports taxonomy files in XML and 13 other file formats, handles taxonomies in virtually all languages and character sets, and utilizes concept categorization for precise tagging and smarter search.
