The Business Value of Taxonomy - Your Competitors Know It

RECORDED WEBCAST AVAILABLE

We still hear it today – executives ask “Why do we need a taxonomy?” Then the various follow-ons : “Can’t we just get google?” “Machine Learning now does all of that automatically” “We just bought an AI tool” “ Our new vendor’s technology doesn’t require information architecture or taxonomy”. “Why do we need taxonomy and product data work for ecommerce?”

Here’s the secret that your competitors aren’t revealing. They are investing in the foundational information architecture that every digital transformation depends on. From high performing ecommerce sites to AI powered customer service bots, they are all made or broken by the quality of the data that drives them. There is no way to skimp on this and achieve superior results. In fact, the need is greater than ever for taxonomy and IA as companies look to semantic search, AI powered chatbots, optimization of the customer journey, the ecommerce and personalization, data analytics and more for a competitive edge.

In this session our expert panelists discuss:

  • How taxonomy is a critical component of all of your data driven applications and processes.
  • How to structure the business case and choose priorities.
  • Examples of how to measure the value of the investment.

Join us for this practical, actionable webinar on one of the key foundational elements for digital transformation, digital experience, operational efficiency and data driven decision making.

Conversation with ChatGPT on Enterprise Knowledge Management

In another article, I discussed my research into ChatGPT and the interesting results that it produced depending on the order in which I entered queries. In some cases, the technology seemed to learn from a prior query, in others it did not. In many cases, the results were not factually correct.

The Future of Bots and Digital Transformation – Is ChatGPT a Game Changer?

Digital assistants are taking a larger role in digital transformations. They can improve customer service, providing more convenient and efficient ways for customers to interact with the organization. They can also free up human customer service agents by providing quick and accurate responses to customer inquiries and automating routine tasks, which reduces call center volume. They are available 24/7 and can personalize recommendations and content by taking into consideration role, preferences, interests and behaviors. All of these contribute to improved productivity and efficiency. Right now, bots are only valuable in very narrow use cases and are unable to handle complex tasks. However, the field is rapidly changing and advances in algorithms are having a very significant impact.

[February 15] Demystifying Knowledge Graphs – Applications in Discovery, Compliance and Governance

A knowledge graph is a type of data representation that utilizes a network of interconnected nodes to represent real-world entities and the relationships between them. This makes it an ideal tool for data discovery, compliance, and governance tasks, as it allows users to easily navigate and understand complex data sets. In this webinar, we will demystify knowledge graphs and explore their various applications in data discovery, compliance, and governance. We will begin by discussing the basics of knowledge graphs and how they differ from other data representation methods. Next, we will delve into specific use cases for knowledge graphs in data discovery, such as for exploring and understanding large and complex datasets or for identifying hidden patterns and relationships in data. We will also discuss how knowledge graphs can be used in compliance and governance tasks, such as for tracking changes to data over time or for auditing data to ensure compliance with regulations. Throughout the webinar, we will provide practical examples and case studies to illustrate the benefits of using knowledge graphs in these contexts. Finally, we will cover best practices for implementing and maintaining a knowledge graph, including tips for choosing the right technology and data sources, and strategies for ensuring the accuracy and reliability of the data within the graph. Overall, this webinar will provide an executive level overview of knowledge graphs and their applications in data discovery, compliance, and governance, and will equip attendees with the tools and knowledge they need to successfully implement and utilize knowledge graphs in their own organizations. *Thanks to ChatGPT for help writing this abstract.
