The Role of Taxonomy in Intelligent Content

Intelligent Content 2011 - Palm Springs, CA 2/16-18Admittedly, taxonomy is probably the farthest thing from your mind if you’re designing an intelligent content application. My conclusion in working with search and enterprise content management technology is that taxonomy development and management is a key success factor in creating effective intelligent content systems. Taxonomy can inform content types and metadata schema, make for consistent tagging, harmonize disparate structured data, and drive dynamic search and navigation user experiences, even with not-so-intelligent legacy content.

Intelligent Content 2010: Making hay from 30 years of legacy content

Join us at Intelligent Content 2010When businesses implement intelligent content, they usually adopt a “day forward” strategy that assures all new content is “intelligent” (in XML and dynamically published), and they minimize the volume of legacy content to convert and migrate. Semiconductor equipment manufacturers – like many other capital equipment manufacturers – support products that last 30 years or more, so legacy technical content is critical to keeping that equipment up, running, and profitable for their customers. In this presentation, we’ll discuss one company’s unique pathway forward to intelligent content. Read more…

ReadWriteEnterprise: IBM Makes Another Commitment To Mashups

Alex Williams posted at ReadWriteEnterprise today on IBM’s latest mash-up offering, the Mash-up Center, which provides connections with web services including Cognos BI through the Cognos 8 Mash-up Service, and allows users to create mash-ups by dragging and dropping Google Gadgets into the Mash-up Center.

I had seen the previous incarnations demo’d at IOD (going back to 2006 and 2007) and the Enterprise 2.0 conference (2007), among other venues. Earlier monikers included Mash-up Toolkit, Mash-up Fabric, Mash-up Framework, etc. Read more…

Webcast: DITA, Metadata Maturity & the Case for Taxonomy

Our research confirms that organizations that use XML authoring are more mature than their peers with respect to the adoption of best practices for search and metadata. However, the use of native DITA metadata capabilities is rare, and many are also missing out on opportunities to use taxonomy for reuse and improved findability. This webcast will explore the metadata capabilities within DITA and component content management systems, discuss two major benefits that can be achieved by using descriptive metadata and taxonomy, and recommend some best practices for getting started with metadata for component-oriented content.
