Content and information are increasing exponentially within and outside your organization. Do you have the right tools and policies in place to help make sense of the increasingly confusing world around you?

Taxonomy Boot Camp brings together practitioners and experts in taxonomy, vendors who have created tools to help manage your taxonomies, and novices who are starting out in the world of information management. Two parallel tracks on the first day provide those new to the field with the nuts and bolts they need to get up-to-speed and give expert practitioners insights into how other professionals have made their organizations more successful through better use of taxonomies. On the second day of the Boot Camp, everyone shares in case studies, practical sessions on taxonomy tools and their use, and cutting-edge developments in the field.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn about tools and techniques you can use to bring your information clouds together and meet the people who can help you be successful in your efforts. Register for Taxonomy Boot Camp today!
