Collaborative taxonomies

Teragram has released TK240 for Collaborative Development Version 2.0. Based on Teragram's taxonomy management software and categorization engine, TK240 2.0 is designed to allow teams of specialists in an organization to collaboratively create, manage and implement taxonomies in real time, increasing the efficiency and accuracy of information retrieval and deployment across an enterprise.

The company reports TK240 instantly analyzes document contents and organizes them into flat or hierarchical taxonomies that facilitate and accelerate the retrieval of information. At the same time, Teragram says, the software enables more than one developer to modify the taxonomy and categorization rules for the same project, enabling users to work simultaneously while individually accessing the specific portion of the taxonomy that is most appropriate. Multiple information workers using TK240 for collaborative development to organize large corporate archives, for instance, can work simultaneously on specialized portions of the master taxonomy without conflicting with or overwriting the other's work, thus allowing such large taxonomies to be developed far more quickly and effectively.

Features for taxonomy developers include:

  • automatic version control, allowing users to refer back to previous project changes;
  • increased efficiency and reduced workload by enabling specialists to collaboratively share expertise on a single project and set workflow parameters;
  • distinct taxonomy tree structure and node level permissions for each user or group, providing a high level of security and flexibility for any type of collaborative project; and
  • intuitive graphical interface, enabling efficient and effortless taxonomy development, testing and deployment.
