Managing data in a content management system presents its own set of challenges. Entering the data is easy. Storing the data is done efficiently. However, finding the data with obvious searches does not always happen with ease. Use of data based on metatagging and indexing is essential to improve this process. Search Content Management brought this interesting news to our attention in their article, “SharePoint 2013 search, metadata-driven navigation simplify structure.”

The physical hierarchy of the data represents a logical path for search queries. SharePoint provides for this feature and can help users achieve findability.

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.
