If you are planning to attend the upcoming SLA Annual Conference in Washington, DC, then you won't want to miss the SLA Tech Zone workshop Taxonomy and SharePoint--A Powerful Combination.
SharePoint helps your organization connect people to business critical information and expertise in order to increase productivity and reduce information overload. It achieves this by providing your employees with the ability to find relevant content in a wide range of repositories and formats. Understanding and using taxonomies within a SharePoint implementation to help users find content, is an essential part of ensuring a successful SharePoint deployment. Taxonomies can range from quite simple to very complex. In this session, we will cover the basics of evaluating what you can do to create a simple taxonomy that will yield the most benefits for your SharePoint implementations. You will have a chance to learn a range of Best Practices, from the basics of building a taxonomy to the hands-on skills of deploying that taxonomy within a SharePoint site.
This workshop is a suitable as either a quick-start or refresher in taxonomy managment for SharePoint. There are three sessions:
- Monday, 15 June 2009 9:00AM - 10:30AM (Ticketed Event #640)
- Monday, 15 June 2009 3:30PM - 5:00PM (Ticketed Event #660)

Based on feedback from our colleagues in Asia Pacific that SharePoint is taking off in their region which has prompted a lot of questions on taxonomy, we coordinated another live session last night specifically for that local audience with my colleague K Biju.
We are now pleased to also provide you with a recorded version of the learning session (view full screen below). These are the live exercises that i went through during yesterdays webinar as well as the download sheet of the exercises we recommend you download and follow along to learn about how to implement taxonomies in SharePoint in your own environment.
We hope you find this video and exercises useful and look forward to your feedback. Please feel free to leave you comments below or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Last fall our Taxonomy Services group conducted a very successful Webinar focused on Taxonomy and SharePoint. Based on requests from our customers, next week we are conducting a similar session for our customers in Asia Pacific. Much like what my North American and European colleagues share with me about their regions, SharePoint adoption seems to have reached a tipping point in Asia Pacific and thus, this session will be timely and very relevant to our Asia Pacific customers.
So if you are located in the Asia Pacific region and would like an introduction to Dow Jones’ taxonomy services and a better understanding of the use and benefits of taxonomies within SharePoint, you can attend our upcoming Webinar. This practical session will demonstrate ways in which you can combine the simplicity of Sharepoint and richness of taxonomy to solve your complex information challenges.
During this session you will learn some of the basic ways to manage controlled vocabularies using standard out of the box features that you can use immediately as well as learn about our Synaptica integration into SharePoint .
Date: Wednesday 25th March
Time: 10.00am Singapore, Hong Kong
2.00pm New Zealand
We welcome everyone who has implemented or is looking to implement a SharePoint solution or in fact anyone who is keen on this subject to join us by registering for this session by sending an email to email@example.com
I look forward to 'seeing' you there!
Our Synaptica product enhancement strategy is to continuously develop useful and innovative ways for our clients to use Synaptica for their taxonomy and metadata management needs. So it wasn't a surprise when some of our clients asked us to provide an 'out-of-the-box' integration point into SharePoint- we know first hand about the issues with managing taxonomies in Sharepoint from our own internal experiences as well as multiple client engagements over the last few years.
Microsoft SharePoint has over one-hundred million licenses in place and its adoption continues to grow globally. In 2007 an IDC survey of 300 companies found 61% were deploying SharePoint enterprise-wide, and that 28% of those using SharePoint in specific departments were expected to expand usage to the enterprise within the next 12 months- and a year later things don't seem to be slowing down.
With that kind of adoption and penetration across so many industries, it is impossible to ignore the impact that SharePoint is having as a portal for information and document sharing both internally and externally to the enterprise. As a result, Synaptica is proud to announce an integration with SharePoint that addresses some of the known pain points that users have when trying to successfully use taxonomies within SharePoint to tag, search and discover documents and other content.
With this Synaptica integration you can:
1) Import a complete vocabulary into SharePoint as a list: This feature provides for the import, and update, of a vocabulary (taxonomy, thesaurus, authority file, etc.) into SharePoint creating a new list which may then be applied as a column to be linked to content within a document library. As the vocabulary is updated within Synaptica, one may update the list stored in SharePoint to make sure that the most current information is being stored and applied as metadata to documents and content.
2) Provide Dynamic access to Synaptica allowing users to tag content : Employing Web Services this feature allows SharePoint to access a Synaptica system through the use of either a keyword search, or a navigable "tree browse" to allow users to find and locate specific terms and apply them as metadata. This dynamic access makes sure that SharePoint users are employing standardized terminology to tag content, where at the same time these vocabularies may be used across the enterprise and in other applications.
3) Provide Dynamic access to Synaptica for search and discovery: A SharePoint Web Part allows users to search or browse real-time through Synaptica vocabularies - using the same terms that have been applied to tag the content. This feature also can "direct" users to the proper terminology, as opposed to their having to guess at how a piece of content might have been tagged using an uncontrolled, free-text method.
With this initial iteration of the Synaptica: SharePoint integration, we hope to solve some of the biggest problems we hear about with users trying to better organize, tag and discover content within a SharePoint portal. We will be looking at expanding the integration over time and adding improved features as we learn more about how we can assist our customers and SharePoint users with these integral tasks.
