  • Filing cabinet mentality = works fine for B2C and for information that includes standard classifications that everyone understands, but not for E2EWhy? Nobody trusts search inside the enterprise, because it sucks.But, people only search when they know what they’re looking for. They BROWSE when they don’t. Thus, taxonomy is needed. And it better look remotely familiar, or people will think they landed on Mars.
