Many turn to auto-classification systems to find some level of consistency and scalability, especially when (and this is very common) more than one indexer is tagging content. There seems to be a feeling that moving to auto-classification systems requires a sacrifice of rich and quality indexing.

We found this interesting topic on CMS Wire in their article, “Auto-Classification: Friend or Foe of Taxonomy Management?” In some situations, this fear made be very real and founded. Taxonomies and thesauri are the foundation of an auto-indexer and like building homes, a solid foundation is needed to provide comprehensive and dynamic findability.

This makes it very important to choose a professional to help you build dynamic, solid standards-based taxonomies. 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.
