The traditional use of Taxonomy is still valid and tremendously significant – enabling precise and complete search returns.

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.
