Access Innovations, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Version 3.10 of its Data Harmony Suite of software tools.
The Data Harmony Suite provides content management solutions to improve information organization by systematically applying a taxonomy or thesaurus in total integration, with patented content extraction methods. MAIstro™, the award-winning flagship software module of the Data Harmony product line, combines Thesaurus Master® (for taxonomy creation and maintenance) with M.A.I.™ (Machine Aided Indexer) for interactive text analysis and better subject tagging. XIS® (XML Intranet System) offers powerful content management and metadata creation tools and completes the Data Harmony Suite.
Data Harmony Version 3.10 features significant enhancements and new features throughout the software suite. These features greatly improve editorial efficiency through changes to functionality and overall clarity.
Most significantly, Data Harmony Version 3.10 now allows much easier use of the software from non-Java based platforms, such as PHP, .NET, etc. It has always been possible to connect to the software using a non-Java platform, but this allows a broader base of users easy access to the Data Harmony software.
“It is exciting for me to see these changes put into action,” said Lamine Idjeraoui, the lead software engineer of the Access Innovations programming team. “Data Harmony 3.10 has so much that will make our clients’ work easier and more efficient.”
System-wide improvements include:
- expanded API options, including JSON as a format for the getSuggestedTerms API
- an improved, modernized look and feel to the GUI, including the ability to change font style and size for improved customizability
- updated notifications
Improvements to M.A.I. include:
- color-coding and line numbering in the Rule Building screen, greatly increasing manageability of long rules
- a new dropdown suggested syntax code menu, making rule building easier and more viewable

Thesaurus Master includes the following improvements:
- assignment of multiple facet notations to a single thesaurus term
- drag-and-drop functionality in the thesaurus view
- ability to double-click a term in the thesaurus view to change the term
XIS improvements include the following:
- unlimited search parameter fields for unlimited granularity

“These changes to Data Harmony are outstanding!

We continue to embrace OWL, SKOS, RDF, and other formats even as the platform broadens its base.”
