Method and System for Extracting Meta -data for Interactions over Collaborative Applications

Disclosed is a method and system extracting meta-data for interactions between multiple users over different collaborative applications. The method and system involves capturing meta-data corresponding to an interaction performed by a user with one or more other users over a collaborative application. The collaborative application may be an e-mail client, a chatting application, document libraries, or a social network. The meta-data includes details corresponding to the interaction, such as names of the users involved in the interaction, time/date of the interaction, subject of the interaction, and so forth. For example, consider an interaction in which User A sends an e-mail to User B. Meta-data corresponding to this interaction is captured and details, such as names of the two users, date, time, and subject of the interaction is recorded. In another example, consider a user commenting on a document in a document library. In this case, the captured meta-data may include details, such as name of the user, author of the document, title of the document and a link to the document. The meta-data may also include a summary of an interaction, which is prepared based on other details corresponding to the interaction which are captured.

The meta-data captured for multiple interactions over different collaborative applications is stored in a database which may be locally available...
