An oilfield services company (Houston) — September, October, and December 2009
This large company initially asked for an evaluation of “behind-the-firewall” tagging systems in order to select a product or specify the requirements to develop one.
We repositioned the study, in agreement with some concerned stakeholders, to first look for case studies and evidence of benefits. We demonstrated that it was neither judicious to develop new software, nor possible to select a viable stand-alone tool in the current state of the market. We created a roadmap based on developing a taxonomy, and evaluating how Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 might meet the company’s need.
