Semantic Booster for AEM
Get automated semantic tags in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) with PoolParty PowerTagging and the Contiem Semantic Booster.
PoolParty has a ready-made integration with our partner, Contiem, to make the tagging processes of Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) more efficient. The Semantic Booster for AEM is our joint solution for implementing smarter tags in an automated way.
AEM is a CMS that builds websites and applications by managing all digital assets and publishing them to front-end sites. Currently, AEM does support tagging to assets; however, the native tagging functionality (AEM Tags) is quite limited.
AEM Tags are not capable of the following:
- Synonyms and alternative labels and terms are not supported by default
- Polyhierarchy is not available
- Tags do not have their own unique ID, meaning if you move tags around or change their details, the system could not identify their relations or redirect them correctly
Enhancing AEM Tags with PoolParty and Contiem
AEM’s tags can be enhanced using the integration set up with PoolParty and the Semantic Booster. Through our strong partnership with Contiem , a typical workflow of PowerTagging with AEM looks like this:
In PoolParty, build and maintain a taxonomy which allows you to easily tag and control your content vocabularies
Using Contiem’s Semantic Booster, sync the taxonomies you built to AEM Tags
The tagging process is made much easier and smarter using PoolParty’s sophisticated classification algorithm
The strengths of this integration lie in the fact that the workflow is supported by a taxonomy that is hosted in the PoolParty Thesaurus Server. A taxonomy allows you to organize your concepts (the semantic tags) into a hierarchical structure where relations between concepts can be easily mapped and categorized, making the context of your terms machine readable. Additionally, the taxonomy supports consistency of semantic tags through a controlled vocabulary.
The tech behind the Semantic Booster for AEM
PoolParty’s easy-to-use interface is designed to help users quickly identify synonyms, alternative labels, definitions, and scope notes under one concept, which helps the search engine retrieve precise results based on this additional information. On its own, AEM is not capable of defining these attributes.
In this screenshot from the PoolParty interface, you can see all the additional information that can be added under one concept in the orange panel. On the left side, you can also see the relationships that can be mapped between concepts in the taxonomy, e.g. a sweater falls under the category “winter clothes” and has a sub category “sweatshirt.”
All this information can by synced to AEM using the Semantic Booster, which in turn helps AEM’s search engine pull results from the added context and synonymous labels. In other words, an ecommerce site whose CMS is stored with the semantic tags can pull products for “sweater” even if the user has entered “jumper” in the field. PoolParty is also set up for multilinguality so that the CMS search engine is not limited by language.
Once this taxonomy is synced to AEM using the Semantic Booster, the user can run auto tagging over the documents and folders in the CMS.
When setting up the auto tagging configuration, the user can define:
The configuration requires a simple copy/paste from the top level URI of the taxonomy (located in PoolParty) to the field in the Semantic Booster (labelled A). This ID is persistent so that any topical changes to the concept or tag does not affect its behavior or relations to other tags. The field labelled B refers to the concept scheme or the facet within the taxonomy, whereas the field labelled C refers to the page link of the folder the user wishes to tag in AEM (copied from the main address bar in AEM Sites).
Once these details have been configured, the user only has to click the AUTO TAGGING button for the semantic tags to appear in the CMS and become finadable in the CMS search engine.
About the PoolParty PowerTagging Approach
From the PoolParty side, the Semantic Booster for AEM is based on our PowerTagging methodology which comprises a rich set of semantic tools that focus on extraction and natural language processing of relevant terms, classification of documents and terms into a taxonomy, and concept mapping in graph-based search.
Benefits of PoolParty PowerTagging
standards-based metadata of high quality
Tagging with PoolParty is not just about extracting important terms from text, but the ability to link data and content to a comprehensive knowledge graph, enriching it with rich contextual information.
