Records management now and in the future will have to be a priority if we want to effectively manage and find our data. Many use SharePoint to achieve this goal. Migrating data for implementation can be a challenge, but from a content management point of view, metadata is the key. CMSWire brought this news to our attention in their article, “Metadata Solves Your SharePoint Content Management Problems.”

Metadata management should be a tier one priority during the object review and cleanup, prior to the records center implementation and the records center retention policies rollout.

Many organizations are scrambling to take advantage of the popularity 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.
