Access to information is something we take for granted more and more every day. The Internet has changed our ability to find information and locate data, close or remote. Smart phones have taken that availability to unimagined realms. In the corporate world, there are still two groups – those who have findability of their data  and those who do not.

We found this interesting viewpoint on KMWorld in their article, “SharePoint: Transforming the information have-nots into the haves.” Those who do have findability most likely employ some version of SharePoint. Access Innovations’ Data Harmony suite of content enrichment and thesaurus management tools can be fully integrated with Microsoft SharePoint 2010. Data Harmony fills semantic gaps in SharePoint to help users take full advantage of their metadata through auto-classification, enterprise taxonomy management, entity extraction, and search enhancements. The end result is information assets that are more searchable and more accessible.
