Many organizations have robust data management operations but fall short when it comes to streamlining and integrating enterprise content. Content spreads across repositories, unstructured and difficult to manage across various contributors and channels. A unified Enterprise Content Architecture (ECA) helps structure, describe, organize and harmonize content assets across the enterprise, making them easier to manage, share and deliver effectively according to various needs and channels. This workshop will explain how ECA fits with Information Architecture and cover the main elements involved in developing an ECA, including:
  • Content strategy – planning for reuse & efficiency.
  • Semantic interoperability – enterprise taxonomy and metadata.
  • Content modeling across functional/technical divisions.
  • Taxonomy as a service.

We will use case studies to see how these different approaches come together to create unified content architecture.
