Taxonomy for Portals Session Description All aspects of portal development can benefit from taxonomy principles. Portals are used to organize, distribute and facilitate connections to information or people within an organization. This session will describe the concept, approach and tools required to apply taxonomy dynamically to create portal applications that meet user requirements. The objective is to show how taxonomy can be used to provide a rich and access framework for search, navigation, transaction and browsing content. After a brief overview from Ralph Poole, Giovanni Piazza will describe how taxonomy is used to create access to all content within the enterprise. Interestingly, Ernst & Young's portal is entirely driven by personal profiles and taxonomy.
