Inxight Launches SmartDiscovery Metadata Management System

Apr 03, 2007

Inxight Software, a provider of enterprise software solutions for information discovery, has launched the Inxight SmartDiscovery Metadata Management System (MMS), designed to allow users to review, cleanse, and augment automatically extracted metadata--the entities, relations, and event data trapped in electronic text.

The Inxight SmartDiscovery Metadata Management System is a data integration platform designed specifically for the collection, exploration, and cleansing of data derived from unstructured sources. It provides data quality assurance--the ability to profile data to discover inconsistencies and other anomalies and perform data cleansing activities (detecting, correcting, or removing inaccurate records)--to improve data quality.

The Inxight Metadata Management System includes three modules: The Metadata Connector, which directs extracted output from Inxight's SmartDiscovery text extraction; The Metadata Repository, which leverages and extends the power of a standard Oracle database to hold Inxight-extracted information; and the thin-client Metadata Editor, which allows users to modify and augment the results of Inxight's SmartDiscovery text extraction.
