Most organizations today face challenges as they accumulate volumes of data on premises and in the cloud. How do they begin to locate what’s valuable, sensitive, or relevant when the time comes, and in an expedited manner? Content without access is relatively worthless. Enterprise search is how an organization helps people seek the information they need, in any format, from anywhere inside their company. Technology is almost always a good investment for organizations, especially if they are looking to justify information technology modernization. 

The mission of efficient and effective organizations, and even government agencies, is supported by data strategies and business intelligence priorities. Big data and analytics can be key technologies in support of those programs. A business that wants to keep its customers and maintain its market share invests in technology to keep up with its competition.

A custom taxonomy provides methods to enable needed data elements to be searched fast and also it offers some advantages for adaptable techniques to the same data elements in one classification system such as analysis, statistical forecasting and maintenance.

Taxonomies provide consistency in terms and categories to enable findability in content. This is true regardless of the subject.

Developing a classification system organized into conceptually similar categories can help users gain a better understanding of the taxonomy subject area. It is important to remember the value of a solid taxonomy and its role in the search and more importantly, findability process. How the content is classified impacts the findability of your data. 

Indexing data against a strong thesaurus or taxonomy makes finding data easier and the information more relevant. Professionals should look for an experienced builder of solid standards-based taxonomies to associate content for appropriate machine-assisted indexing.

There are applications for the science of taxonomy in all areas of business. The important thing to remember is a strong standards-based taxonomy is one with true integrity.

Making content findable is important to knowledge management. It is important to remember the value of a solid taxonomy and its role in the search process.
