3359Re: [TaxoCoP] data modeling and taxonomy
- Jan 4, 2010Gabriel's has got it there for me. The key differences are that data modelers work with the mapping of structured data (i.e. entities and rows in databases) whereas taxonomists work with unstructured information. Organizations often want to use the structures in their database applications (e.g. customer attributes in their CRM system) in their taxonomies (e.g. applying this information to proposal documentation). This is a good idea in principle but some care needs to be taken with the implementation for it to be usable. Discussions around Master Data Management should probably involve both.
