Germany's Layer2 is offering pre-defined Taxonomy Metadata for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 under a partnership with WAND, Inc.

The data is ready to use as managed metadata in the SharePoint Term Store and can help to jump-start Knowledge Management (KM) projects in Intranets and Employee Portals based on Microsoft SharePoint technology.

SharePoint 2010 now offers managed taxonomies and folksonomies, expertise finding, content rating, and commenting. Enterprise metadata management is a new set of features introduced with SharePoint 2010 that enable taxonomists, category managers, and administrators to create and manage terms and sets of terms across the enterprise.

Developing a taxonomy can take considerable time, resources, and money. Depending on the complexity it may take many months, several iterations, and ongoing maintenance to continually improve the classification.

In cooperation with WAND, Inc, Layer2 now offers pre-defined Taxonomy Metadata for SharePoint Server 2010 covering a wide variety of domains to help jumpstart classification projects.
