“What are taxonomies to knowledge management?” contemplates Access Innovations’ CEO, Jay Ven Eman. “They are the core to a well-designed knowledge organization system, or KOS. We have pioneered and perfected the development and deployment of taxonomies that provide knowledge management, observing the essential guiding principles needed for effective and efficient knowledge organization. Without the purpose-built taxonomy, the language of the knowledge contributor (for instance, an author, scientist, or knowledge worker) and the language of the knowledge user (for instance, a customer) will typically fail to be bridged. If you can’t find it, it might as well not be there. A well-built taxonomy—and we have built more successful enterprise taxonomies than anyone—bridges language and usage differences, and provides accurate, consistent, persistent, and precise navigation and retrieval. This truly makes us the leaders in using our experts and our patented, award-winning Data Harmony software to semantically structure and enrich content so knowledge management will actually deliver on its promise.”
