A well thought-out metadata schema helps you effectively manage information, find it, and publish it in the right places. A content model can further enhance information management by defining content relationships to create an intelligent and semantic network of information.
Make your content work harder and better
We can define the metadata for a variety of content types and technologies, including content and document management systems, digital asset management (DAM) systems, and product information management (PIM) systems.
For more than 15 years, we’ve solved findability, workflow, content publishing, and other information management challenges for General Mills, Ubisoft, PepsiCo, and other leading organizations around the world, across a range of industries.
Whether you’re implementing a new DAM system, expanding your document management solution, or introducing personalization for an e-commerce website, we can help you get more out of your content.
Deliver the right content at the right time
A robust metadata schema accommodates all use cases, across your entire content lifecycle. We meet with your stakeholders to understand all the different types of metadata they need, based on how and where they use content.
We begin by identifying all the functional requirements across the content ecosystem. Working with your team, we then develop a focused metadata schema that is powerful enough to accommodate all needs yet lean enough to be sustainable.
We make sure the proposed metadata meets internal and external standards and adjust as needed. Standards might include master data requirements from your IT department or international metadata standards, such as ISO or GS1.
Ensure that solutions are usable and useful
The quality and usability of your metadata is paramount to us. We test our proposed structure and labels with the people who will use them, to make sure they make sense. This ensures that the final metadata schema is focused and meaningful.
Throughout the project, we look for opportunities to recommend process improvements or other technical features to automate metadata for greater efficiency and accuracy.
We can help you with:
- Metadata auditing
- Metadata design and development
- Metadata cross mapping and migration
- Content modeling (content type design)
Some metadata leverages controlled vocabularies. Find out more about our taxonomy development services.
