When it comes to content management, each organization is unique. However, while the business entities and types of content may change between clients, typically the pattern and approach is familiar. Learning to recognize those patterns and being able to leverage them is key to increasing the success of your content management projects. CMS Wire brought this interesting topic to us in their article, “Using Content Patterns to Improve Content Management.”

Content management has always been supported by a taxonomy. It gave context to each piece of content. The taxonomy indirectly provided metadata for the content and grouped related content together. Eventually, content systems grew from departmental solutions into broader enterprise solutions.

A solid, custom taxonomy enables and supports both internal processes such as content management and externally-facing features like navigation, search and personalization. All this creates the perfect environment for findability.

Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
