Many organizations are struggling to manage large and complex sets of data flowing into their organization at a rate they can’t possibly manage with traditional technology. There is typically a mechanism to capture and manage structured information, however much of today’s information is unstructured and stored in separate silos. DATAVERSITY brought this information to us in their article, “The ROI of Content Intelligence and Semantics.

Content intelligence is required to reduce risk and secure the bottom line. Not understanding the content and context of your information can expose you a number of risks – discovery risk, non-compliance risk, the risk of wasted time and effort by staff who need information as well as the risk of managing and storing the information.

One of the basic needs for data, both structured and unstructured, is to be searchable. Without strong taxonomies and standardized methods to manage your data, a difficult situation can get worse. Choose the right product and professionals to provide taxonomy services and help you manage your content.
