The need to classify and categorize corporate information has never been greater. The proliferation of information channels, sources and delivery platforms make managing information a complex business challenge. This interesting information came to us from The Knowledge Management Depot in their article, “Taxonomies, Ontologies, and Content Models Oh My!“
The key to managing information is to develop a way to identify, classify and categorize enterprise information. This categorization allows for effective management of content throughout the information lifecycle: capture, storage, retrieval, archival and disposal. The most common way to associate structure around information is to develop and implement a taxonomy.
Metadata makes digital content findable. However, findability works only when a proper taxonomy is in place. Proper indexing against a strong standards-based taxonomy increases the findability of data. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies. Whether you need to upgrade your existing taxonomy or create one from scratch, we work with you on a taxonomy or thesaurus that meets your needs.
