Do you have a taxonomy strategy for your business? Did your company setup SharePoint sites, lists, and libraries without metadata? Do you have a strategy but want to measure it against industry best practices? If your answer was "yes" to any of these questions - this is the session for you; one which helps define your taxonomy and information management strategy.

This session is designed to walk through effective quantification and qualification for creating the right taxonomy for your business, including ways to enhance social and Enterprise 2.0 technologies. We will discuss how to determine relationships amongst information and the incremental collective benefits from tagging documents with the right data. This is more than just a how-to; it's a roadmap to defining corporate information and knowledge in your organization to ensure that your SharePoint content is well structured, in order to provide better access, improved productivity, and more reliable information.

You will learn:

  • Introduction to taxonomy definition and creation
