Automatic Document Categorisation and Tagging

Auto-classification is the ability to scan the contents of a document and automatically assign categories and keywords found in the document contents. 

Within Office 365, applying classification labels to content greatly improves an organisation’s ability to find information, whilst enabling information managers to control how content is managed and used however, labelling relies on the user remembering to tag an item and apply the correct classification label. As a result, the auto-classification of content is becoming increasingly popular, particularly as the scale of corporate content and storage options grow. 

There are different approaches to implementing auto-classification, but the method preferred by our clients is to use a rules based engine that is taught the language used in your organisation which is then used to tag your content against one or more business taxonomies.
