Putting taxonomies to work

This InformationWorld Review article (requires free registration) summarizes what the TFPL found in interviews of businesses conducted to discover how they were using business taxonomies. Taxonomies for Business: access and connectivity in a wired world was the title of a conference organised by TFPL to launch the results of an international research project into how large corporations are using – and are intending to use – taxonomies. The research, jointly funded by BrightStation software company, Smartlogik, was conducted in the summer of 2000 and presents six in-depth case studies which resulted from visits and in-depth interviews, along with 16 telephone- interview ‘caselets’.
