Taxonomy

Taxonomy Development, Maintenance, and Support

Knowledge Management at FireOak StrategiesMost organizations have several taxonomies in place without realizing it. However, with content management systems such as SharePoint, Salesforce Knowledge, Drupal, and WordPress that heavily rely on taxonomies, it is necessary for organizations to consider their approach to information architecture and determine the best course of action for developing a single taxonomy that best meets today's needs.

At FireOak Strategies, our information management experience is deep; we've worked with organizations of all types and sizes to develop new taxonomies; enhance, manage,  or revise existing taxonomies; and plan for the long-term maintenance and administration of organizational taxonomies.

What is a taxonomy?

A taxonomy is a system for organizing and codifying content for a particular entity such as an organization, company, or body of knowledge. Taxonomy work includes defining the structure for organizing information, specifying individual terms used for classification, and defining the relationships among terms.

How are taxonomies used? 

Taxonomies are most often used for web sites and other types of content management such as document management, digital asset management, libraries, and archives.
