Transforming SharePoint through Metadata
Concept Searching Article on the Importance of Metadata in SharePoint and Office 365
Concept Searching is pleased to announce the publication, in the KMWorld Best Practices in Enhancing SharePoint White Paper, of the article ‘Don’t Enhance SharePoint – Transform it through Metadata.’
Metadata is, and has been for some time, the source of business challenges impacting search, eDiscovery, records management, data security, migration, social tagging, collaboration, and text analytics. SharePoint does not provide the ability to generate metadata, nor classify it to the Term Store.
This article, based on the results of a Concept Searching ‘SharePoint and Office 365 Metadata Survey’, offers a unique view on how SharePoint organizations are using, and would like to use, SharePoint and Office 365. Organizations are looking to solve business problems and the crux of these problems is metadata. Achieving organizational objectives and transforming SharePoint into a solid business solution delivering quantifiable business results is unobtainable until metadata generation and management are addressed.
