Classification is the means by which we can build a structured metadata model around our unstructured information, enabling us to identify, find, provide access, protect, retain and dispose of it, rigorously and consistently.
This one day workshop is designed to equip you with the knowledge to build classification schemes (metadata, taxonomies and ontologies) that are fit for current and future information management systems.
It is designed to provide pathways for information managers to incorporate current classification schemes and schedules into more flexible data models that will support automation, integration and interoperability between systems including SharePoint and contemporary eCM systems.
Metadata is fundamental to information governance. It is used to identify, describe, organize, sort, filter, search, validate, utilize, migrate, preserve and dispose of information assets.
- Defining and scoping metadata requirements
- Considering the purpose of metadata
- Metadata for facetted classification
- Using metadata in SharePoint for better business outcomes
Information governance solutions can’t work without metadata. But without standardisation, poor quality metadata will worsen existing problems and even create new ones.
- The impact of poor quality metadata and the importance of standards
- Working with different types of metadata standards
- Best practice in developing managed metadata for the SharePoint Term Store
A spectrum of taxonomies
Different schemes suit different purposes. It’s all about metadata and how it’s connected.
- Understanding different taxonomy models and their uses
- Using metadata to build ontologies and taxonomies
- Working with different taxonomy standards
Auto-classification is a set of technologies that make it possible for documents to be categorized without human intervention.
- Defining the outcomes you want from auto-classification
- Reviewing the techniques used in auto-classification
- Designing ontologies and taxonomies for auto-classification
Integration and Interoperability
The ability to share, transfer and exchange digital information is essential in every way – for collaboration, for preservation, for digital continuity.
- Recognising different types of interoperability
- Enabling integration between SharePoint and eCM systems
Her ambition is to align information governance with information technology through common language and shared objectives – achieving business value and performance.
