One tool to do it all
a.k.a. was consciously designed as a product to manage your entire information governance framework.
Your a.k.a. toolkit is entirely customisable to cater for your specific needs. It’s extensible, so can accommodate new requirements as they arise. It’s modular and scalable. And it’s transparent, so it’s easy to understand and doesn’t require programming skills.
This unparalleled versatility makes a.k.a. different to every other information governance product on the market.
With a.k.a. software you can create any metadata elements, entities or relationships and combine them to build any schemes, then deploy them into any information system.
There are no limits to the type of solutions you can create…
Faceted classification schemes
Taxonomies for search
Business classification schemes
the information lifecycle
Information asset registers
Retention & disposal schedules
Vital records registers
a.k.a. is different
a.k.a. software is ubiquitous
a.k.a is designed to integrate with any information system, current or future.
We know that you maintain multiple information systems. a.k.a. provides you with functionality to create schemes for each of your different systems sourcing from standardised data in the a.k.a. Library.
We make it easier for you to standardise and harmonise your language across all of your business systems.
a.k.a. is agile, extensible and scalable
Your organisation is rapidly evolving and your information management needs keep changing. Through mergers and acquisitions you may acquire new terminology, systems and processes, that need to be rapidly harmonised.
We know that you need an agile product that can evolve and change in time and in tune with your information environment.
a.k.a. provides an extensible toolkit enabling you to add and customize fields, forms, lists, captions, tags, properties, controls, relationships and schemes. Any new element can be added into the a.k.a. data model at any point in time enabling you to rapidly respond to change.
a.k.a. connects the past, present and future
With a.k.a. you can manage your information governance framework over time because current and legacy data can co-exist within the same database. You don’t have to throw away your legacy schemes – chances are you will need to reference them some time in the future.
a.k.a. is designed for non-technical users
With a.k.a. you will be able to undertake complex tasks which are normally undertaken by IT specialists. We use code free functionality (mapping tools, wizards, scripts and templates) to simplify technical tasks such generating XML files and publishing interactive reports to the web.
a.k.a. enables automation of information governance
Information governance processes which are heavily dependent on quality metadata are ideal candidates for automation.
With a.k.a. you can design and create taxonomies, ontologies and appraisal models and convert these into machine readable data for upload into the auto-classification platform.
a.k.a. is multi-jurisdictional and multilingual
Companies operating in a global environment need to output their data in multilingual formats.
a.k.a. enables multiple language renditions of each entity and scheme, with reports, imports and exports filtered by language.
a.k.a. manages information where it lives
With a variety of formats available, a.k.a. exchanges schemes and metadata with virtually every information system.
Outputs like XML, RDF, CSV and TXT enable deployment into any information system that will import generic formats.
Customised API-based integrators facilitate regular data exchange with Windows Explorer, SharePoint and HP Records Manager (TRIM).
