West Point Underwriters has chosen some new technology to manage metadata to address the specific needs of the insurance selling process. KMWorld brought this news to our attention in their article, “Addressing the challenges of metadata.”

Concept Searching’s conceptClassifier for SharePoint and conceptTaxonomyWorkflow are the catalyst of Web technologies designed to help reduce unnecessary costs and increase efficiency. Concept Searching reports that the taxonomy component gives users an easy-to-use set of tools to develop an enterprise metadata framework. This is specially designed for subject matter experts and will improve search results.

Having a defined taxonomy can help promote collaboration and connections. The taxonomy is a hierarchical view of a controlled vocabulary or a list of terms in their preferred form. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies. By focusing on making information findable, we produce knowledge organization that works.
