Organizations today struggle with unifying their enterprise information systems with business processes so that classifications can evolve to meet changing needs, yet remain in context of one another.

Join us to hear Leslie Owens of Forrester discuss emerging trends in the role of taxonomy in the enterprise, and how information professionals can better leverage the taxonomy message to steer EA strategy toward achieving business objectives.
