Taxonomy to the Rescue


Tagged: , , , ,

A lot of clients ask for help explaining to their boss(es) the value of taxonomy. Here are three ways to answer that question:

1. ‘We need to be more efficient finding the information we’ve already created!’ Taxonomies can help people across a corporation find information faster and better.

2. ‘We need to make search work better!’ Better integration of search systems and taxonomy tagging can greatly improve search.

3. ‘We need to get our company intranet portal organized!’ Yes. Taxonomies can help organize the structures of your company’s portal. Done.
