Taxonomy and Metadata Metaphors…

Anjali Yakkundi, a product marketing director at Aprimo, has written a brief piece at CMSWire with an interesting take on our favorite topic, titled: Taxonomy & Metadata: The Menu and Ingredients for Your DAM Restaurant

“I like to think of taxonomy and metadata like a restaurant menu, where the taxonomy acts as the menu of categories and the metadata is the dish descriptions. Let’s find out why.”

Useful metaphors for describing to stakeholders what these critical components involve when beginning your DAM journey.

DAM EU – June 27-28, 2019!

Only 3 weeks away, DAM EU by Henry Stewart Conferences, including a Panel titled, “Metadata Matters – because when it comes to content, it’s everything you have…” on 27 June, 14:00PM moderated by one of our favorites, John Horodyski of Optimity Advisors. It will be at the The Amba Hotel Marble Arch, London.  Go, while you can still travel to the UK!

Metadata is a strategic imperative in the endeavor to manage effectively a company’s knowledge. The successful implementation of any DAM or content related strategy requires the implementation of a holistic metadata schema that is supported by technology, people and process. It increases the return on investment of a content system by unlocking the potential to ingest, discover, share and distribute assets.

This session explores how different industries and organisations manage metadata and design their metadata models to fit their business needs. The panel will discuss lessons learned, top tips, successes and new developments in the field.
