Taxonomies & Terminology: 1 + 1 = 3?

The value of taxonomies and ontologies is obvious to everyone working with semantic data and trying to utilize it for many different purposes.

And since content has a plethora of touchpoints in a company, it is almost by definition inconsistent.||||Therefore, terminology should be standardized in a collaborative effort within the company and then made easily available to both human users and consuming systems such as taxonomies.

More recently, we have seen entire enterprises leverage centralized semantics to power multiple applications and transform to fuel a data fabric.
