Ontolica Solution Use Case
Enrich Metadata for better findability
Enable better search refinement
One of the key benefits of good metadata in SharePoint is the ability to provide search refinements targeted specifically to your organization. With better metadata search refiners are easily configured to enable better findability for SharePoint users.
Integrate with the Term Store in SharePoint
Both SharePoint 2010 and 2013 provide a useful feature for storing and managing term sets and creating managed properties to enable taxonomies specific to your organization. However, to automate the integration of external metadata with the Term Store requires third party tools such as Ontolica Fusion.
Add Meta data from external data sources
Often metadata exists in many places across the enterprise outside SharePoint. To align applications running on SharePoint with the enterprise infrastructure integration of metadata provides a best practice place to start.
Synchronize metadata from business systems
Line of business (LOB) systems such as CRM, ERP, SCM etc. often contain metadata that can be specifically useful to synchronize with SharePoint. For example, if you categorize customers in certain groups in your CRM system it makes sense to mirror that categorization automatically in SharePoint.
