Knowledge Management/TAXONOMY MANAGEMENT
All effective knowledge or information delivery systems are underpinned by a good taxonomy, or classification system. As the ability to leverage data across systems becomes increasingly important for both law firms and in-house departments, so does the management of taxonomies across those systems. Taxonomy management tools work in two ways – either to manage organization-wide taxonomies, enabling the organization to maintain consistency and control over its data, or to manage taxonomies and tagging within a single system. Lexsoft’s T3, for example, provides the ability to tag knowledge content from stored taxonomy lists before it is pulled into a single knowledge delivery system such as enterprise search. By contrast, Synaptica is a solution that allows for the organization and management of taxonomies across multiple systems.
