17Architecting Enterprise-Wide Information ConsiderationsSite structuring/restructuringContent management/classificationContent lifecycle managementCommon Tools and PracticesManaged MetadataEnterprise KeywordsContent OrganizerContent Type HubRetention Policies and Records ManagementIn terms of architecting this enterprise wide information management platform - we need to remember a few key points:First is that taxonomy, topology, the information structure is going to be changing, and it is going to be changing on an ongoing basis. Your company might be going through a reorganization, where certain teams are being collapsed or certain teams are being changed. Your going to have challenges in terms of certain teams generating more growth than others. Your going to have teams that need to archive content, and teams that need to manage permission more diligently because of their ethical walls or because of their restrictions.In doing all of this, you'll also want to take advantage of as many native SharePoint tools as possible: things like managed metadata, enterprise keywords, content organizer, content type hubs and all your retention policies and records management are really going to go a long way to help you in this architecture and to help you in the information management sharing. NewsGator has amazing gifts in this field, to be able to identify the right producers and consumers in your organization. And all of SharePoint's native capabilities are there to augment that and to really help enhance the discoverability of data -
