Access Innovations' CEO, Dr. Jay Ven Eman, demystifies a taxonomy: its use, necessity and value in problem-solving and organizing content for a business or organization. Jay stresses the need to first understand taxonomies before planning to build, customize and implement one (or more) for your company.

A taxonomy or thesaurus of any applicable use requires the right tools, available expertise, time and adequate funding toward indexing and implementation.

Analyzing and planning  While obtaining or building a taxonomy does not have to be an expensive proposition, cost can quickly escalate while usefulness can decline or be misdirected.  An understanding must come first, followed by an analysis of your situation, and then an implementation plan.
