New Application, CatExec Decreases IT Spending; Enables Content Managers To

Swiftly, Easily Build Categories for Web Content

    WASHINGTON, DC, EGov 2001 Conference, April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Inxight(R)
 Software Inc., the leading provider of unstructured data management software
 used to analyze, organize and navigate Internet and enterprise content, today
 announced Inxight Categorizer Executive(TM), an application that accelerates
 government and corporate portal deployment by up to sixty percent by
 simplifying the first and most important step:  organizing content into its
 appropriate categories.
     In the past, corporations were forced to rely on XML programmers and
 engineers for this function; with CatExec it can now be accomplished by the
 content managers themselves.
     "Categorizer Executive is based on Inxight's proven linguistic
 platform that provides a solution for categorizing documents, thus
 significantly increasing the effectiveness of portals and data mining," said
 Brian McDonough, Research Manager, Knowledge Management Software, IDC. "Based
 on years of linguistic research, Inxight products understand language and how
 words work together to form different meanings. This language-aware element
 enhances the results of data or text management."
     "The effective categorization of content is crucial because it affects how
 information is later searched and retrieved by end users," said Ian Hersey,
 Inxight's vice president of linguistic products. "Initial testing suggests
 that with CatExec, the categorization of documents can be done more than
 sixty percent faster -- and by the actual content editors themselves, not the
 IT staff. They are the most familiar with the content and have strong opinions
 about how it should be arranged. We've created an easy to use 'wizard' that
 enables them to fully own the process, making corporate portal deployment
 easier and more efficient."
     Used in conjunction with the Inxight Categorizer(TM), the new CatExec
 provides a powerful, user-friendly and highly interactive application. It
 guides the user to quickly develop a "training set," which is a set of
 examples the Inxight Categorizer will then use to determine how documents
 should be classified and into which categories they should be placed.
 
     A Word About Accuracy
     Accuracy is essential when cataloguing documents. What makes the Inxight
 Categorizer more accurate than other software is that it is both language
 aware and context rich. Other systems rely solely on statistical language
 analysis or brief document abstracts only. The Inxight approach, which is
 based on more than 20 years of linguistic research at the world renowned Xerox
 PARC, uses entire documents to ensure highly relevant context, as well as an
 array of patented natural language processing and machine learning techniques
 that offer the highest possible level of accuracy. Inxight Categorizer's
 advanced machine learning architecture scales to thousands of categories while
 maintaining accuracy and adapting automatically to user feedback.

     Categorizer Executive is in limited availability immediately; general
 availability is slated for June 2001. Contact Inxight sales at 888-414-4949 to
 arrange for a preview.
