June 4, 2010 – Several years ago we heard about ITC Infotech, the India-based services company, and its Metatag+ solution. In 2009, the Gilbane Group published “ITC Infotech Introduces New Solution for the Media and Entertainment Industry.” The product dropped off our radar. Yesterday we fielded an inquiry about Metatag+. Our recollection is that the product combined manual and automated processes and tossed in some repository functions as well. We wanted to provide a snapshot of what the solution delivered:

Metatag+ enables organizations to effectively manage taxonomy, and control vocabulary and schema management across assets. A comprehensive workflow allows ingestion of metadata into the assets, thereby facilitating a productive search environment and enhanced collaboration across assets and related metadata. ITC Infotech also has tailored solutions and services to help customers enhance revenue propensity and reduce total cost of ownership (TCO), while transitioning to the new media world. ITC Infotech has a dedicated media and entertainment practice, focusing on building specific solution accelerators and cost take-out propositions. The practice has developed solution accelerators spanning across areas such as metadata management, asset life cycle management, and intellectual property management, besides cost take-out propositions in digitization, cataloging, technology operations and testing services.
