PoolParty Thesaurus Manager

Build the foundation for your knowledge management strategy with an award-winning taxonomy tool.

Manage taxonomies in a user-friendly editor. Easily create concepts and drag/drop them in the taxonomy tree. 
Extend your taxonomies in the Ontology Editor.

Generate different views on your taxonomy.

The PoolParty Thesaurus Manager is regarded as a premium taxonomy and ontology management tool by industry publishers such as KMWorld and Gartner. Not only is PoolParty easy-to-use despite its powerful capabilities, it covers all the components needed to maintain taxonomies and later leverage the knowledge model with machine learning and AI in order to further scale your enterprise business processes. 

Without a taxonomy management tool like PoolParty, the alternative is trying to fix the problem with unstructured data in siloed CMS and applications – in other words, the PoolParty Thesaurus Manager gets rid of headaches from a time, money, and resource perspective.

Enterprise Taxonomy Management: Link and manage your taxonomies in a centralized tool.

The PoolParty Thesaurus Manager helps customers achieve the first steps needed in having structured knowledge and data management. The taxonomy ensures that data is more accessible to users, that machines can understand the hierarchy of information, and at a later point, the relations within your data.

Build and manage hierarchical taxonomies, faceted taxonomies, thesauri, classification schemes, controlled metadata term lists, and terminologies

Manage vocabularies compliant with W3C standards for vocabularies, with all SKOS features and import/export interoperability in CSV and multiple RDF serializations
Link and map multiple vocabularies across the enterprise
Customize quality settings, including for thesaurus construction guidelines, and ensure import quality with the data validator
Implement APIs to integrate with other systems
Support full multilingual vocabularies, including non-Roman scripts

Add an expressive layer with ontologies and custom schemes.

Using PoolParty’s standards-based ontologies, machines can more accurately process the meaning of data based on complex business rules in an automated way. It’s with ontology creation and management that data (and not just content) is leveraged, linked, and turned into knowledge.
Extend your taxonomies with semantic relations and custom attributes
Import your data to build custom ontologies from importing spreadsheets
Easily design ontologies with with a UI that guides non-ontologists through the steps of creatinting standards-compliant ontology models
Import, reused and link from other ontologies based on open W3C standards

Enhance your thesaurus with corpus analysis.

Based on advanced text mining, PoolParty Corpus Analysis extracts candidate terms from a document or web source and automatically suggests how to include them into the existing knowledge graph. It grants knowledge architects and subject matter experts the ability to extend a taxonomy so that all “gaps” in the domain are filled.
Extract candidate terms to extend your taxonomies semi-automatically with NLP-based term extraction from content sources
Extract a high volume of concepts at once. PoolParty rates a “healthy” extraction at 1 million plus terms
Crawl various sources such as documents, pasted text, websites, rss feeds, and DBpedia
Avoid using general language in the taxonomy by scoring the corpus based on relevancy of concepts
Harvest linked data sources and create SKOS taxonomies by crawling DBpedia to generate rich seed taxonomies
