Planning service
How the planning service works
Metataxis has many years’ experience in designing information architectures, which typically consist of:
• Information inventories: Finding out what information your organisation holds.
• Information modelling: Describing the appropriate levels of information granularity and inter-relationships.
• Metadata and taxonomy: Defining the policies, processes, metadata and controlled vocabularies required to tag information to support findability.
• Information flows: Working out the flow of information items within your organisation.
• Findability: Creating a strategy for information retrieval and defining the search and browse techniques and tools required to support user requirements.
• Usability: Designing the visual manifestations of your content, including all the above.

Designing an Information Architecture for a cloud system such as Office 365, SharePoint and Microsoft Teams is crucial to undertake at an early stage because there are many design and configuration decisions that need to be taken before the implementation starts.
