Data Harmony Products

The Data Harmony software line is produced by Access Innovations to assist in information management and retrieval. We feature a wide variety of Data Harmony products designed to assist with taxonomy construction, automatic indexing, database records management, information retrieval, and much more!



MAIstro is the unique combination of Thesaurus Master, Machine Aided Indexing, and TestMAI.  This powerful tool simplifies taxonomy management for document indexing. MAIstro, using the Java-based Data Harmony platform, integrates into any content pipeline to help structure content. MAIstro provides fast and accurate document indexing, whether used as an automatic indexing system for large volumes of content, or to speed human indexers’ productivity, all while maintaining editor control and consistency. M.A.I. facilitates the selection of indexing terms from controlled vocabularies, authority files, or full thesauri. MAIstro’s TestMAI feature presents a list of approved terms to the editor for selection, which saves time looking up terms manually and speeds processing time; this, in turn, saves money and increases productivity. Customers have experienced up to a seven-fold increase in productivity using MAIstro for document indexing, while measurably improving consistency and coverage of individual records. MAIstro improves consistency by suggesting the same term in the same conditions every time, preventing editorial drift.


XIS is a versatile XML based content records management system that seamlessly links to other modules. By using the Data Harmony engine, XIS allows users to not only store their content, but index it against multiple vocabularies simultaneously. With XIS, you have total control over all the data you need to capture. A user-friendly schema allows database customization to capture any data element, including legacy data. Object-oriented versatility enables you to specify which data elements are used in your forward-flow. Link each field in your XIS database to authority files or your Data Harmony thesaurus to normalize and enrich each record at point of creation. With robust search, a handy administration module, and full integration with MAIstro, XIS is an easy-to-use, but remarkably handy tool for organizing your content.

Inline Tagging

Inline Tagging uses Data Harmony to automatically find and highlight text strings from within documents based on a controlled vocabulary, thesaurus or taxonomy.  Data Harmony inserts an XML wrapper around matched words, finding and labeling concepts from your taxonomy in full-text documents. The inline wrapper can be configured so the interface presents functions that the user can activate at the exact spot where M.A.I. suggests a relevant subject term. Inline Tagging retrieves any element from the thesaurus term record to offer relevant information at the precise location of matching content on the fly. This makes it convenient for a developer to implement customized functions for the user – exactly where the terms match.

Search Harmony

Search Harmony enhances search using a controlled vocabulary, thesaurus or taxonomy to launch queries for improved information retrieval. Powered by your controlled vocabulary and rule base in Data Harmony, Search Harmony opens doors to relevant and related information during a user’s search and retrieval. It uses a navigation tree software with an organization’s Data Harmony thesaurus hierarchy to launch search queries. Search Harmony additionally comes complete with a recommender function links concepts in your controlled vocabulary with a searcher’s query, to return other articles that were indexed in a similar way. Content-based filtering from the recommender makes it possible to implement “Find More Articles Like This” and other options for engaging user interest in related information.

Smart Submit

Smart Submit maximizes the benefits of Data Harmony’s automatic indexing by integrating author generated metadata into document submission. Smart Submit facilitates the addition of taxonomy terms by the document’s author. With Smart Submit, each author provides subject keywords from the publisher’s taxonomy to accompany the item for submission. This extension supports early categorization, selection of peer reviewers and trend analysis. It additionally presents a handy way to elicit metadata information from publishing contributors.

Semantic Fingerprinting

Disambiguates author names and affiliations and captures author profiles to improve metadata. It suggests the most appropriate subject terms from a controlled vocabulary to describe a contributing author, their affiliated institutions and other relevant information – based on analysis of document text.


TopiCluster allows users to organize their content by subject heading and view it with dynamic visualizations. This is done using your controlled vocabulary within Data Harmony. These clusters facilitate conference tracking, organization, and planning, while having the ability to view your data in new and exciting ways.


When constructing a controlled vocabulary, it is crucial to use terms that actually exist in the data. With TermSpy in Data Harmony, you can analyze any size of data set to find the terms and concepts that appear most often in the content. TermSpy helps keep thesaurus or taxonomy editors focused on what is truly relevant in the data


Using a controlled vocabulary within Data Harmony, SwiftSumm quickly and effortlessly allows users to take a full, complete manuscript – or any type of text content – and summarize it for abstracting or simply to get a quick appraisal about the subjects discussed in a single document or in a massive amount of information. SwiftSumm facilitates the understanding of your content without the necessity to read every single page of the documents.


Now more than ever, business intelligence demands detailed analysis of social media. Using SentiScore within Data Harmony, users can cut through the massive amounts of information to see the sentiment that any given message relays. Positive, negative, or in between, SentiScore allows you to identify trends about a particular subject, making actions to act on that subject easier to decide upon and to understand the way an audience feels about a certain topic.
