Beyond The Polar Webinar

ASIS&T Presents …
Beyond the Polar Bear
Webinar Date:  Thursday, May 26, 2011, 11:30am-12:30pm (EDT)

The BBC’s new Food site (bbc.co.uk/food) is completely rebuilt using principles of domain and data modeling. Domain-driven design breaks down complex subjects into the things people usually think about. With food, it’s stuff like ‘dishes’, ‘ingredients’ and ‘chefs’. The parts of the model inter-relate far more organically than a traditional top-down hierarchy. Continue reading

The traditional use of Taxonomy is still valid and tremendously significant – enabling precise and complete search returns. But with the evolution of web and search technologies there are an increasing number of relevant connections that help users discover additional resources, facilitate effective collaboration, and better use the mounds of information available to them. Carefully built taxonomies and intelligent indexing provide the foundation for many of these semantic enhancements. Inspired information architects have built them into portals and web sites that engage users and provide them with new ways to connect. Publishers and others who sell content find these linkages good for business, making it easier for their visitors to identify content valuable to them, and turning them into return visitors.

2010 Taxonomy Webinar Series

(sponsored by ASIS&T and Project Performance Corporation)

Today’s business users work with a range of information management tools designed to capture and provide access to critical business information. However, that information is of little value if users can’t find what they need. Business taxonomies can provide solutions to an organization’s knowledge management challenges. Although the concept of taxonomies is not new, organizations are beginning to focus increased attention on the design and development of intuitive and sustainable taxonomies that will serve their end users by making it easy to find the information they need in a single place. Today’s users have come to expect a simple way to both search and browse for their information, but still many organizations do not know where to begin in the design of such a system.

This webinar series focuses on the design and management of business taxonomies for the storage of information within systems, as well as the overall findability through search and browse of the information your end users seek.
