Organizations are slowly waking up to the enormous value that enterprise social knowledge networking can unlock. With Microsoft SharePoint, collaborative knowledge management becomes a viable approach to enable organizational intelligence in the enterprise. Taxonomy is the key: Managed metadata can drive navigation, content discovery and search, relationships, and re-usability of content. Managed metadata can provide a common vocabulary for corporate language, and it can connect people via social networks.

Features and Benefits

Add Knowledge Management to SharePoint

Why not turn all your SharePoint content into knowledge? Just create taxonomies and assign consistent and accurate metadata to items and documents to classify and relate content and users.

Classify your SharePoint portal content

Manual content classification is time-consuming and requires specific subject knowledge. Why not classify automatically? You can use bulk tagging (for example after content migration into SharePoint) or real-time tagging (during document upload or item change) with flexible scopes and options.

Increase findability for items and documents

Assigned managed metadata terms can help out-of-the-box to better find the desired content via SharePoint search or by applying filters in SharePoint libraries. But there could be much more.


Discover corporate knowledge in SharePoint

There is no technical book without a subject index or glossary. Why not using these familiar features on your portal to find content cross-site or site collections by topic? Simply browse your knowledge using additional, flexible tree-based or directory-like navigations.

Take care about a common corporate language

Knowledge sharing requires a common corporate language. How do you call your products, services, projects exactly? Find it in a corporate subject index or glossary in SharePoint.

Keep your employees connected

Subscribe to specific topics and be informed in case of any changes. Find the right person for specific questions by topic across the enterprise. Enable content relationship management.
