We like consistency and standards. It might be the reason we do business in taxonomies. Standards and structure are important for organizing a complex and technology-driven society. Without standards, structure, and the existence of language conventions, comprehension suffers regardless of the subject matter. Artificial Lawyer brought this interesting topic to us in their article, “Why It Is Time for the Legal Sector to Mind Its Language.

Standards allow technology to work seamlessly and cultivate trust. Markets can, in turn, operate smoothly utilizing standards-based technologies. Standards provide a common language to measure and evaluate performance, make interoperability of components from multiple manufacturers possible, and ensure safety, durability, and market equity across the board.

A taxonomy is a kind of controlled vocabulary, and standards apply to both. Interoperability standards are important for those controlled vocabularies which are intended to be shared or reused.

Whatever the search, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
