The Layer2 Knowledge Management Suite for SharePoint makes it as easy as possible to manage the SharePoint Term Store, to classify content and to use content classification for knowledge browsing, navigation, content discovery and search.

100% based on the Microsoft SharePoint Server Enterprise Metadata Management API. No external or legacy code –just SharePoint.

Auto Tagger: Assigns managed metadata automatically to items and documents without any user interaction. Bulk-Tagging (e.g. after migration) and real-time tagging (on item change or document upload) supported.

Taxonomy Manager: Advanced features to manage the SharePoint Term Store including import, export, update and deployment. Support for several term formats including SKOS. Additional managed metadata properties (e.g. classification rules).

High quality of subject classification using a high performance Microsoft .NET Framework based content classification engine. Installed IFilters are used to access the documentcontent. RegEx support for more complex content classification rules.

Tag Suggester: While manually assigning managed meta data to items or documents, tag suggestions are provided based on given term sets, classification rules, item properties, context and file content.

Tag Navigation Web Part: Harvest the value of content classification by using the SharePoint managed metadata taxonomy tree directly for content discovery and navigation. Flexible link building, e.g. link to the Term Profile Page or directly to the Term ID search result list. The Web Part optionally displays additional information, e.g. term description. Template-based design.
