Information architecture solution for UK publisher
Our client was a professional society that has published one of the UK’s key reference books for hundreds of years. The society needed to transform itself from a traditional print publisher to an electronic publisher and this required a detailed Information Architecture.
To support their digital transformation project to become an electronic publication, the publisher asked Metataxis for guidance in the design of their semantic content management system, with a focus on the management of core ontology components.
The Metataxis approach
Moving from paper-based publishing to electronic publishing was a major step change for the organisation. Metataxis helped ease this transition by sharing our information architecture expertise.
Information architecture advice
We provided architectural expertise to the core team responsible for electronic publishing.
We gave educational workshops on the development and use of taxonomies and ontologies to the wider organisation.
Ontology tool selection
We assisted with the selection of an ontology management tool by providing a shortlist of vendors and guiding the RFI process.
We supported the information architecture activities with a programme manager for the whole semantic content management programme.
