Metadata, Taxonomies and Search & More Accolades for Smartlogic

Metadata, Taxonomies & Search

I gave you a sneak peak to the survey last week. This week, I finished all the analysis and here is a summary.

A survey carried out at KMWorld’s Taxonomy Boot Camp & SharePoint Symposium 2011 shows that while a majority of organizations are utilizing search applications, only 1/3 of these organizations are happy with their search implementations; the remaining 2/3 are only somewhat satisfied. This does not come as a surprise as two main ways to improve search are by meta-tagging and/ or implementing a taxonomy.  In this survey, about ½ of the respondents have implemented taxonomies, and those who have not state that they will be implementing taxonomies within the next 2 years. However, meta-tagging within all organizations is appalling low as evidenced from the survey responses.  How then can one then expect to see good search results?  For the full detailed report, send us an email at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Not to toot our own horn. OK - who am I kidding! Love to toot horns and this kind of news needs tooting.  Recently, Smartlogic was chosen as a Finalist for KMWorld’s Promise Award. 2011 has proved to be a good year for us in terms of awards; first we got the “100 Companies to Watch For” and then “Trend Setting Product of 2011” and now this, but who’s counting? Us, of course!

I Can See Clearly Now…
