RE: [Sigia-l] maintaining a content inventory
Managing content data for a migration would likely require integration with
the content management application. It's not just the metadata that you are
tracking but the actual content assets, correct?
Schemalogic Schemaserver would not have this functionality off the shelf. I
would also say that Factiva's Synaptica product, though a very good taxonomy
management tool would not necessarily have this functionality out of the
box. Both tools have strengths and weaknesses and are good at certain
aspects of taxonomies and thesauri but it sounds more like you are tracking
assets and metadata and requiring a transformation from one repository to
A company that I was following a couple of years ago is Cambridge Docs
(http://www.cambridgedocs.com) I just took a look at their web site and it
looks like they are evolving their product.
Their approach is to convert documents to XML and tag them during the
conversion process. These tagged documents can then be imported into your
content management system with metadata applied.
It sounds like you are inventorying content and tagging for a later
conversion or import. It may make sense to convert the content and apply
metadata prior to the migration.
Are you also trying to manage metadata terms independently of content?

I suggest you also take a look at Factiva Taxonomy and
their newly-acquired product Synaptica. Factiva acquired
Synapse (the folks who brought you the Taxonomy Warehouse)
last summer, and with it Synaptica, "Enterprise-class vocabulary
and metadata management ...."
