In the digital world, semantic technologies and procedures automate the classification of digital content and enable the assignment of content to specific topic areas. Semantic methods find a profitable business application in the spot where optimal management, in this case of a constantly growing amount of online content, contributes to the strategic goals of an organization.

Using taxonomies and semantic tagging of articles to enable subject browsing and to improve search are two of the most popular reasons why publishers invest in semantic technology, but the potential benefits are not limited to those applications. 

Taxonomies play a crucial role in a digital world by organizing and categorizing information in a structured and meaningful way. In the context of a digital environment, such as websites, databases or content management systems, taxonomies provide a hierarchical framework that facilitates information retrieval, navigation, and discovery.

For any content-intensive organization, using a taxonomy increases findability, which in turn leads to greater utility and value for the organization’s content assets. Within the enterprise, this translates into hours and dollars saved by reducing the time required to find things, as well as the time and expense of duplicating research or other finished work that cannot be found.  

A taxonomy, coupled with improved search and discovery, provides a new level of engagement with site visitors – helping them discover articles that match their interests and informing them of the full scope of benefits and activities that come with greater involvement in the organization.

Access Innovations makes heavy use of semantic modeling and digital design along with automation to mark up content whether in the conversion process from print to digital or from word processing formats to digital knowledge assets.

While rapid growth in the Internet, digitization, and compression have reduced the cost and time for content production, processing, storage, and distribution, they have also introduced far greater challenges in monitoring and controlling media piracy. No technology is ever foolproof, and digital fingerprinting is no exception. As fingerprinting algorithms become more mature to quickly detect copyright infringement, content pirates work overtime to find techniques for evading detection.

Taxonomies enhance search and discovery capabilities in digital environments. They can be used to tag or classify content, enabling more accurate and targeted search results. By associating relevant keywords or terms with specific categories, taxonomies improve search relevance and increase the chances of users discovering related content that they might not otherwise have encountered.

Access Innovations’ Data Harmony Hub™ is a cloud-based platform that provides fully automated content tagging using expertly curated taxonomies. The Data Harmony Hub is the result of working with clients over many years to understand their goal to integrate a tagging and semantic enrichment process into their workflow. The low-code integration allows organizations to easily connect their content management system or document store to Data Harmony Hub. Once integrated, the managed service works behind the scenes 24/7 to improve the findability and discoverability of content.
