Cortex

Automated categorisation and flexible taxonomy management

Cortex is Flare’s central engine for delivering automated document classification, business rules, taxonomy management and text analytics. Cortex provides the ‘back end’ capability that makes searching for data and information easy and reliable.

The AutoCat functionality allows automated classification of content using the Flare Taxonomies. It makes the cataloguing and/or migration of documents in underlying repositories such as SharePoint or Documentum fast and effective. The resulting classification allows users to search and retrieve information quickly and have trust in the results.
