Verity's knowledge app has taxonomic features

Verity Inc. has updated its knowledge management platform with several new taxonomic features.

The Verity K2 Enterprise 4.5 application lets users import standard taxonomies, make their own or combine both approaches, said Rajat Mukherjee, principal architect at the Sunnyvale, Calif., company.

An auto-initialization feature imports information in Extensible Markup Language from existing internal sources, such as a customer relationship management application, to make it easier for new users to start with K2 Enterprise, Mukherjee said.

Make your own

K2 Enterprise 4.5 comes with the LexisNexis Content Organizer, a Verity tool that lets users import taxonomies developed by LexisNexis Group of Atlanta. Users can also create taxonomies to meet their own needs using K2's thematic mapping feature, Mukherjee said.

A gateway developer kit provides Java and Component Object Model application programming interfaces to open the K2 infrastructure to other applications, Mukherjee said.

The software has document-level security, 'so if you don't have access to a particular document, you don't know that it exists,' Mukherjee said. 'We believe that if you don't have access to the information, it shouldn't come up in your list of results.'

Average installation cost for K2 Enterprise is $170,000 to $200,000.
