Get the tools to future proof your business

Our Director Noeleen Schenk is presenting at the Federation of Small Business event Get the Tools to Future Proof your Business.

The FSB have created this event to help small businesses plan for reopening after lockdown. “As you reopen your business and look to the future make sure you have all the tools to hand to make the most of opportunities as they arise. This event will talk you through some top tips on how to ensure you have all the information you need at your fingertips to ensure you can take the most successful decisions for your business“.

Noeleen will be talking to members about how looking after your information is not just the preserve of larger organisations, but also vitally important for small businesses, and can help them protect their business from unexpected shocks.  The presentation will focus on what they need to consider, in small practical steps. 

Join Noeleen and and Federation of Small Business on Wednesday 19 May 2021, from 10:00 – 11:00. Book here for the online event.

Metataxis now on G-Cloud 12

Metataxis are pleased to announce that public sector organisations can again access our services through the latest G-Cloud 12 framework.

Cloud services, such as O365/SharePoint Online, require careful planning, design and governance to be successful; however all too often this is just seen from a technical perspective rather than one based on the information and the user.

Metataxis can help organisations meet these information management and information architecture challenges that make the difference in being able to support long term adoption and deliver real value.

Metataxis offer a number of services on the G-Cloud:

  • Information Governance & Assurance
  • Information & Knowledge Management Strategy
  • Content Migration Services
  • GDPR Compliance Services
  • Information Architecture Services
  • Information Discovery Services
  • Information Management Services

    If you would like any further information then please contact us.

  • It’s good to talk

    We are often engaged by our clients to help them develop a strategy for managing their information.

    It should go without saying that understanding the information requirements means understanding the business.

    Being a consultant does not mean having a cursory conversation and then magically producing a boilerplate strategy out of your back pocket.

    Being a good consultant means…well, it means consulting, and then applying your knowledge in the unique context of the organisation you’re working with.

    Understanding this context means spending time talking to people, not only those at the top with the ‘vision’ but also spending time with those on the ‘frontline’ who deal with the day to day and who make the organisation tick. These are often the ones who suffer the most from poor information management, wasting time looking for the information they need, redoing work or relying on out of date or inaccurate information.

    Gaining this overview right across the business – understanding how it works and the constituent entities that make up the domain (to go all information architecture speak) gives valuable insight and often gives us a better view of the enterprise than those within it.

    Only by doing this can you then understand the business, how information management can help and what the strategy should be.

    An invaluable by-product of the time spent talking to people is that you have started one of the crucial aspects of the strategy implementation before it is even written – change management. Talking to people means that you have already started engagement and staff will be more willing to accept change and act on it if they feel their concerns and issues have been listened to and are being addressed.

    It really is good to talk.

    The Implications of Blockchain for KM and IM

    Metataxis are speaking at a seminar of the Network for Information & Knowledge Exchange (NetIKX), on Thursday 6 July 2017.

    The seminar overview is: Blockchain is a word that is growing in usage – in both the IT and information management worlds. It is one of the most exciting and potentially game-changing technologies. But what is it and what does it mean? And as information professionals what do we need to know? What will be its impact on the management of information and knowledge?
