Factiva Teams-Up with TFPL on Information Architecture Study; "Taxonomy In Context" Study

Factiva announced that it will sponsor the "Taxonomy In Context" research project with information organization consultant and recruiter, TFPL. (Also available on ZDnet.) The research project will seek to identify how organisations are using taxonomies to construct their "Information Architecture". TFPL defines "Information Architecture" as a coherent set of strategies and plans for information access and delivery inside organisations. The research - based on case studies of organizations, and vendor questionnaires and interviews - will examine the balance between software and human intervention related to the application of taxonomies within content management systems, and whether customer needs are being met by vendor offerings.
