New evaluation of taxonomy management tools

  • 16-Nov-2011

Taxonomy management tools are starting to gain traction in the business world, and as a result the vendor marketplace is evolving rapidly.

As corporate requirements for search and content management have intensified, so has the demand for tools that help organizations create, administer, and publish semantic structures.

You the customer can choose from among several fully-featured taxonomy management tools, yet each vendor has tackled the problem of managing vocabularies from a different angle. So how do you figure out which one is right for your context?

I've just authored an advisory paper that evaluates a collection of leading enterprise-level taxonomy management tools head to head:
·    Sempahore Ontology Manager (Smartlogic)
·    Synaptica
·    Data Harmony Thesaurus Master
·    TopBraid Enterprise Vocabulary Net (TopQuadrant)
·    Intelligent Topic Manager (Mondeca)

Learn about each tool's key strengths and weaknesses, add-on modules available, and SharePoint integration capabilities. Find out which vendors excel in multilingual vocabularies, ontologies, governance, and cross-mapping.
