SpringTide’s Tony Moldo explains what Taxonomy is and how using it effectively can benefit your business.

What is Taxonomy?

Taxonomy is defined as a branch of science concerned with the classification of something.  Within a best-in-class organisation, it’s a hierarchical classification of entities of interest to an enterprise.

The value of these structures is not lost on companies that use enterprise-wide taxonomies to organise data, documents and systems, with the goal of enabling workers to find information and complete mission – critical tasks in an efficient and standardised manner.

However, this seemingly simple approach can often become very complex, especially within large corporations with hundreds or even thousands of users in disparate locations with varying requirements.
