WAND taxonomies provide strong value because they make information more findable and actionable.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 15, 2008
Mark Leher, Vice President of Business Development for WAND, Inc., recently participated in an exclusive interview with Ron Powell and the Business Intelligence Network (http://www.BeyeNETWORK.com). In this interview, Leher describes WAND's extensive taxonomy with vocabulary for classifying products and services and talks about why taxonomies in general are valuable business assets.
"Taxonomy is simply becoming a critical component to discovering information that is locked in unstructured textual information within the enterprise," noted Leher. "Taxonomy can help identify key concepts within the text and put context around that content so knowledge workers can find answers. Business intelligence professionals should examine taxonomy with a long term strategy in mind."
"Unstructured data is having a huge impact on business intelligence," says Ron Powell, Cofounder and Editorial Director of the Business Intelligence Network. "WAND taxonomies provide strong value because they make information more findable and actionable."
