Layer2 highly improves
Enterprise Metadata M
anagement with
SharePoint


Centrally managed metadata or enterprise taxonomies are the key to
success with knowledge management projects based on SharePoint. The
Layer2 Taxonomy Manager
for SharePoint

hi
ghly improves the
default
metadata management
features
with advanced import, export, update and
deployment features. To make use of commercially available taxonomies
the widely used
XML
-
based
SKOS format is fully supported for data
interchange. The
solutio
n

also adds content classification rules to terms
managed in the SharePoint Term Store as a pre
-
consideration to simplify
content categorization.

Automatic content classification and categorization
with

SharePoint


The
Layer2 Tag Suggester for SharePoint

makes it as easy as possible
to add metadata to SharePoint items or documents. Content classification
rules managed directly in the Term Store are used to make content
-
based
suggestions to guide users while assigning metadata. The
Layer2 Auto
Tagger for S
harePoint

goes
far
beyond this: Content is classified
completely automatically with metadata, based on
rules, existing
content
properties,
item
context and document text content. This is a great step
forward for companies that have to classify large docume
nt sets, for
example after migration to SharePoint.

features and better
findability
in SharePoint

content classification
, e.g. metadata
-
based list filters or facetted search.

adds additional
navigation options to the SharePoint default. The tree
-
structured enterprise
taxonomies can directly be used for content discovery. Use
rs can simply
browse the corporate knowledge

independent of the storage location.


The
Layer2 Tag Directory Web Part for SharePoint

offers some kind of
index or glossary of corporate keywords

based on the Term Store
. This type
of index

is well
-
known from

technical books, now available for SharePoint.

language and understanding based on the enterprise taxonomy.
The
automatically built index of terms

also allows to find
and share
content very
fast alph
abetically
