Organizing your data in a database is a key step in ultimately finding it again when the time comes. In between there, your data can provide intelligence through analytics and predict trends, etc., but only if it is properly organized. This is where a taxonomy comes in handy. This interesting topic came to us from Software Development Times in their article, “Databases should work for us, not the other way around.”

Databases are supposed to be an aid for us, rather than a demand of our time and energy. With the explosion in the volume of data, this has never been truer.

Machine assisted indexing of data against a solid custom taxonomy is the key to any data management system’s success. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies that can help clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies to manage their content.
