Best-in-Class Taxonomies

WAND specializes in developing precise and best-in-class taxonomies covering a wide variety of domains. WAND Taxonomies are available for licensing in applications that have a need to better organize data and content. WAND follows the ANSI/NISO Z39.19 standard for taxonomy development. Our methodologies include leveraging taxonomy development experts, domain research, and customer feedback to develop vocabularies that offer a clear knowledge representation for any given domain. We analyze user behavior whenever possible to augment vocabularies with new concepts or terminology. Finally, we leverage proprietary software and computational linguistic techniques to assist our human editors in creating the best taxonomies possible.


WAND Taxonomies can be used in more than 150 common enterprise applications and are available through the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.
