What is innovation management? It is similar to content management or content sharing. Maybe it should be called content liberation software since sharing knowledge is the acceptable behavior. How should a company approach innovation since it rarely just happens?

Smart Data Collective brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Innovation Management.” It’s important to clearly define what the organization wants out of the innovation and agree on the process. This will vary by industry.

Creating, storing and accessing information to reach those innovation goals requires a solid structure to ensure findability. Machine assisted indexing is a great feature in any management system and it helps to reduce redundancy, but it is very important to choose a product that makes your content findable – easily and with thoroughness. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies and associated rule bases for machine assisted indexing.
