Information Management Planning and Problem Solving

We use our experience in the appropriate use of standards technologies to protect owners' information from proprietary traps, and to enhance the usefulness of their existing information without necessarily having to alter it. Our involvement in the development of the Topic Maps and HyTime standards and their early implementations gives us a special expertise and appreciation of the problems those standards were designed to address. We use this knowledge and insight in performing:

  • Strategic vision development
  • Intellectual property evaluation
  • Enterprise knowledge integration
  • Requirements analysis
  • Information architecture design
  • Knowledge navigation
  • Information technologies training
