    • Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 … the bright frontier
    • What is metadata? • Literally, “after data” • In practical usage, it means data about data • For SharePoint, it usually means data that describes or classifies other data (lists) or documents (libraries) (6) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Terminology • Taxonomy – A formal hierarchy of terms and tags, usually centrally administered and defined • Folksonomy - Informal list of ad-hoc tags or terms, usually built up over time through user defined keywords (Thomas Vander Wal – “people’s taxonomy”) • Term Store – A database that houses taxonomies • Term Set – The “second level” of a taxonomy • Term – (a/k/a “tag”) An element of the defined taxonomy (7) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • SharePoint Content Terminology • Content Type – A reusable collection of settings and rules applied to a certain category of content in SharePoint. • Content Type Hub – A site collection which operates as a central source to share content types across the enterprise • Content Type Syndication – Publishing content types across multiple sites, site collections, web application and/or farms.

All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Scenario: Growth of an Information Architecture • In six months, marketing grows to a department, gets its Products Product Information own site Marketing • Document physical Marketing Information storage becomes de facto taxonomy (13) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • IA Questions • “I’m in the marketing group, and I just finished a new product sheet for the X-21 project – do I keep it on my site, or on the products site, or save it to both places?” • “I’m in the product group, and there’s a product information sheet for the X21 Screen Cleaner – is that the most recent version, or do I have to double check on another site?” • “I’m searching for information on the X-21 product – do we call it ‘X21’, or ‘X-21’? Why can’t we use both?” (14) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • IA Solutions • Use MMS to centrally define product tags to be shared across multiple sites and libraries • Create centralized document repositories (Document Center) • Define a term store for all departments • Managed Metadata field in Document Center for Department • Content Type Organizer rule to move new documents tagged as “Departments:Marketing” to a Marketing folder in the Doc Center • Add a new “Departments” Managed Metadata field to Content Types in our collaboration sites and Document Center, and set default to “Departments:Marketing” (15) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Demo • Tag sharing across multiple sites/collections – Products and Screen Cleaners (16) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Folksonomy • Informal list of ad-hoc tags or terms, usually built up over time through user defined keywords • Centrally stored in the MMS application • Included by default in all document libraries (17) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Social tagging • Tagging activities are always available form a common UI • Tags are aggregated to each users profile page • Tags themselves get profile pages (18) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Demo • Adding Managed Keywords to a library • Tagging and terms • Tags on personal profiles • Tag profiles (19) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos

    • Demo • Term sets and terms • Metadata fields • Navigation (21) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Content Type Hubs • Define one master site Managed Metadata Service Application collection to house master content types • Publish and Primary Site Collection Content Type Hub synchronize across multiple farm and or Other Site Collection site collections Local Content Types Subscribed Content Types (22) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC.

    • Design Considerations • Dynamic external tags • Tag security • Openness vs. closed term sets • Federated administration • Content types & site columns - practical guidance (24) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Design – Dynamic External Tags • One way data import limits • BCS provides alternative tag techniques • BCS data source can be maintained externally, or by publishing the source as an External List. – External Lists act almost identically to native SharePoint lists in the UI. (25) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Design - Security • Security is limited to the term set level • All child terms inherit this visibility setting • What you can’t do is this: – Tag (Viewers) • Northwind (Andy & Bob) • Contoso (All Employees) • Oracle (Executive Team Only) (26) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Design - Openness • Folksonomy - Managed Keywords are usually “open”, and allow users to add new terms interactively through tagging. • Taxonomy - Managed term stores are usually closed, and require administrators to add new terms. • Open folksonomies and closed taxonomies is a good practice. – May become a best practice – Watch trends in casual social tags and evaluate “promotion” to formal taxonomy. (27) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Design - Shared Service Applications • The 2007 Shared Services Provider has been broken up. • Each of its elements is now a Shared Service Application • MMS is also a Shared Service Application • Records/librarians/IA can administer metadata without becoming farm admins (28) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Design – Content Types • Use Document ID function uniformly among hub and subscribers – otherwise content types aren't published • Check logs for content publishing if you have questions – Republish and use options & timer jobs to “force” updates • Site columns, especially choice lists, can behave unexpectedly. – Column definitions and lookup values will be copied to each separate site collection – Lookup values can be locally edited and changed. – They reset to master values the next time the content type is published. (29) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
    • Demo – Administration • Central Admin – Federated Administration – Create term sets – Create terms and tags – Dynamic external “tags” • Content Hubs • Search (30) Twitter hashtag: Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitterhashtag: #spsbos
