Taxonomy and Information Architecture:
One of the key success factors in a information and knowledge management system is the organizational structure of that information. Information that is well organized and structured is easily found by those that seek it. With our skills in Portals, Collaboration and Content Management and our experience in building taxonomies, we will provide your organization a intranet that enables information workers to search and discover critical organizational information.
A corporate intranet serves as the framework from which all corporate information can be accessed. We can help your organization with the taxonomy of your corporate intranet, and the capacity planning, infrastructure requirements, load balancing and fault tolerance needed to serve the user of your intranet. We can advise you on the best way to leverage your existing toolset to get the most out of the tools that you purchased. We can also help organizations build a sound technical architecture for any code-base solutions required to customize your intranet to fit exactly what you are looking to accomplish.
Searching for information is obviously crucial to finding that information when the taxonomy cannot readily present it. However, ineffective searching techniques often lead information workers to abandon those searching tools because they either do not return enough results or they inundate the user with too many results. We understand the fine line between too many and not enough search results. Our consultants can help your organization create efficient and effective searching structures so your information workers can find the information for which they are seeking.
Information workers need to work with others and often times the tools used to facilitate this collaboration can hinder the communication. Collaboration spaces must be light, easy to use, and readily accessible. We can aid your organization in implementing a collaboration solution including the technical know-how to administer and secure collaboration spaces as well as offer best practices to ensure that your collaboration solution stays within your control.
Embedding process flows in to your technology solutions is both a blessing and a curse. By enabling your knowledge management solution to understand what needs to happen to a document or a process when a step is accomplished your information workers gain the flexibility of passing that information on without having to remember to do so. However, the more process and workflows that are embedded in to your systems, the more open you become as an organization to losing the understanding of why the process or workflow was there to begin with. We can help you not only create the necessary workflows, but also document the existing workflows for compliance and legal reasons.
