ApexKB is Enterprise 2.0 software that empowers users to compile and share collaborative bookmarks by crowdsourcing their knowledge, experience and insights using knowledge tags. Users tag, link, and rate structured data and unstructured data sources, including relational databases, flat file databases, medical imaging, content management systems, and any network file system. It is an interactive, user-submitted recommendation engine which uses peer and social-networking principles to reference any information located in distributed storage devices, either inside or outside the firewall, and capture the collective knowledge about that content, media, or data
ApexKB is enterprise web-infrastructure for tagging and linking information resources. ApexKB lets you search and share high-value content, media, or data across remote locations using knowledge tags to capture knowledge about the information in distributed storage. It collects these tags in a tag profile. The tag profiles are stored in an interactive knowledge base and search engine.
The software represents a fundamentally new approach to searching structured and semi-structured data using a Web 2.0 front-end where user-created tag profiles bookmark quality information resources, user contributed experiences add real-world knowledge about the information resources, and user-created reviews sort out the worthy resources from the inadequate
ApexKB is free software under the GPLv2 license. Users can purchase installation and support contracts under commercial, educational, or nonprofit licenses.
Users access ApexKB via any industry standard browser; including Windows Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, and Opera. The Search Engine in Jumper is the first thing users see when they access the Jumper Intranet portal. Access to Jumper can be open to the public or controlled by requiring log-in to view some or all of the tag profiles. By clicking on a search result users can view the full tag profile. The ‘tag profile’ is a reference to an information resource located in a remote storage device. The tag profile captures knowledge about this resource using social tagging. The full tag profile is returned with the search results. Much like a card in a card catalog it is a central reference point to collect and discover information associated with and about distributed information resources. With certain privileges a user can add a comment to the tag profile, expand upon the description, add new knowledge, or link the profile to another information resource. In addition, viewers can rate the value, accuracy or completeness of the tag profile. They can also choose to create a new tag profile that references content, media, or data regardless of format or location.
