SLA Tech Zone: Taxonomy and SharePoint -- A Powerful Combination

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.
