Companies need a taxonomy strategy to organize information and make it easily accessible to enterprise information workers. The WAND Taxonomy Library Portal is a valuable resource that provides the foundation for a corporate taxonomy strategy.” Leher continued, “What most people don’t realize is that there are more than 150 common enterprise information management applications that are designed to leverage taxonomy. We estimate that most large organizations have already invested in 10-20 of those applications. At WAND, our goal is to provide taxonomies that make those applications more effective and increase the return on investment.”
