IBM has undertaken a multi-year effort to improve the integration and delivery of its web content by improving the management of classification metadata and of the underlying ontologies. This effort builds on existing best practices for managing classification metadata, as well as on best practices for managing taxonomies and ontologies.

This session will focus on describing these best practices, with an emphasis on how existing systems can gracefully implement these best practices. Ralph Tamlyn will discuss:

  • Managing and publishing taxonomies, ontologies, and user-facing hierarchies as a cohesive set of reference data.
  • Managing classification metadata in the systems using the taxonomies and ontologies; and at the interfaces between systems
  • Objective metrics for taxonomies, ontologies, and classification metadata
  • Tradeoffs between ideal leaps forward and the reality of small steps based on priorities, limited funding, and organizational adoption.

Speaker:
Ralph Tamlyn
is currently lead taxonomist for IBM’s CIO Enterprise Solutions and Web Enablement team. In that role, he is responsible for unifying IBM taxonomies for all internal and external web content. He and his teammates are also responsible for establishing the larger strategy to develop processes, governance, and tools.
