Planning service Yes
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 or SharePoint On-Line 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.
