10 10 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. What is metadata? Literally, “after data” In practical usage, it means data about data For SharePoint, it usually means data that describes or classifies other data (lists) or documents (libraries)

11 11 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Wait, what was SharePoint again?

14 14 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Terminology Taxonomy – A formal hierarchy of terms and tags, usually centrally administered and defined Folksonomy - Informal list of ad-hoc tags or terms, usually built up over time through user defined keywords (Thomas Vanderwal – “people’s taxonomy”) Ontology - Formal representation of knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain, and the relationships between those concepts Term Store – A database that houses taxonomies Term Set – The “second level” of a taxonomy Term – (a/k/a “tag”) An element of the defined taxonomy

15 15 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. SharePoint Content Terminology Content Type – A reusable collection of settings and rules applied to a certain category of content in SharePoint. Content Type Hub – A site collection which operates as a central source to share content types across the enterprise Content Type Syndication – Publishing content types across multiple sites, site collections, web application and/or farms.

16 16 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved Managed Metadata Service Centralized enterprise repository for tag hierarchies and keywords Publish and subscribe model for distributed content types

17 17 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Scenario: Growth of an Information Architecture New company starts to develop products “X21 Screen Cleaner” is the first product Products team has a SharePoint site with a folder for product information Simple storage and navigation

18 18 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Scenario: Growth of an Information Architecture Company hires its first marketing specialist Adds a folder to the library for marketing content Multiple products, but all information still in one spot

19 19 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Scenario: Growth of an Information Architecture In six months, marketing grows to a department, gets its own site Document physical storage becomes de facto taxonomy

20 20 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Information Architecture Questions “I’m in the marketing group, and I just finished a new product sheet for the X-21 project – do I keep it on my site, or on the products site, or save it to both places?” “I’m in the product group, and there’s a product information sheet for the X21 Screen Cleaner – is that the most recent version, or do I have to double check on another site?” “I’m searching for information on the X-21 product – do we call it ‘X21’, or ‘X-21’? Why can’t we use both?”

21 21 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. The bright frontier – SharePoint 2010 Managed Metadata Service Centralized enterprise repository for tag hierarchies and keywords Publish and subscribe model for distributed content types

22 22 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Using MMS Taxonomy Add from common button Select from list tor type- ahead Consume from views, navigation, and search!

23 23 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. DEMO Tag usage and sharing

24 24 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Folksonomy Informal list of ad-hoc tags or terms, usually built up over time through user defined keywords Centrally stored in the MMS application Easily enabled option for all document libraries Can also be applied to content outside SharePoint

25 25 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Social tagging Tags are aggregated to each user’s profile page Tags have profile pages Tags can be “followed” just like people in SharePoint social nets

26 26 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. DEMO Adding managed Keywords Tagging and Terms Tagging on personal profiles Tag profiles

27 27 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Search Tags are automatically crawled properties All tags and terms are available as left hand “refinements”

28 28 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. MMS - Shared Service Applications 2010 common farm functions are now independent Shared Service Applications MMS is an SSA! Records/librarians/IA can administer metadata without becoming farm admins

29 29 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Taxonomy Administration Creating and managing terms and term sets Attaching to a library Taxonomy navigation

30 30 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Taxonomy Operations Term sets can be copied, relocated, and reused from existing terms Terms can be copied, reused, merged, deprecated, etc. Keywords (folksonomy) can be moved into a managed term set or deleted

31 31 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. DEMO Admin Term sets and terms Metadata fields Navigation

32 32 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Content Type Hubs Define one master site collection to house master content types Publish and synchronize across multiple farm and or site collections

33 Best Practices

34 34 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Design Considerations Openness vs. closed term sets Tag security Dynamic external tags Content types & site columns - practical guidance Role of Master Data Services in SQL 2008 R2 Programmability & Customization Dark secrets…

35 35 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Design - Openness Folksonomy - Managed Keywords are usually “open”, and allow users to add new terms interactively Taxonomy - Managed term stores are usually closed, and require administrators to add new terms Open folksonomies and closed taxonomies is a good practice…best? Watch trends in casual social tags and evaluate “promotion” to formal taxonomy.

36 36 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Design - Security Security is limited to the term set level All child terms inherit this visibility setting What you can’t do is this: Tag (Viewers) Northwind (Andy & Bob) Contoso (All Employees) Oracle (Executive Team Only)

37 37 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Design – Content Types Use Document ID function uniformly among hub and subscribers – otherwise content types aren't published Check logs for content publishing if you have questions Republish and use options & timer jobs to “force” updates Site columns, especially choice lists, can behave unexpectedly. Column definitions and lookup values will be copied to each separate site collection Lookup values can be locally edited and changed. They reset to master values the next time the content type is published. Changes to Content Organizer, Records Management and Retention Policy reduce the need for more content types

38 38 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Design – Dynamic External Tags One way data import limits BCS provides alternative tag techniques BCS data source can be maintained externally, or by publishing the source as an External List. External Lists act almost identically to native SharePoint lists in the UI.

39 39 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Physical and Logical Design Use Content Type Organizer rule to move new documents based on initial tags Use taxonomy and metadata to drive information lifecycle management processes (e.g. archiving) Improve browsability and search relevance

40 40 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Design for SQL 2008 R2 Master Data Services Not just for BI! Centralized repository of facts for metadata, dimensions, etc. Provides Hierarchy of attributes and entities Security, workflow, data batching and forensics Coexistence Export from MDS to MMS; requires code for deltas Consume MMS data into MDS More to come…

41 41 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. DEMO Central Admin Federated Administration Dynamic external “tags” Search Content Organizer

42 42 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Programmability C# use Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy PowerShell $str = “SAMPLE” $site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://MYSITE") $session = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy.TaxonomySession($site) $termstore = $session.TermStores[“MYTERMSTORE"] […create group…] […create term set…] $term = $termset.CreateTerm($str, 1033)

43 43 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Programming & Customization C# use Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy PowerShell Native web parts to display tag clouds Easily built web parts to add statistics on tag usage

44 44 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. DEMO PowerShell

45 45 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. IA Solutions Use MMS to centrally define product tags to be shared across multiple sites and libraries Create centralized document repositories (Document Center) Define a term store for all departments Managed Metadata field in Document Center for Department Content Type Organizer rule to move new documents tagged as “Departments:Marketing” to a Marketing folder in the Doc Center Add a new “Departments” Managed Metadata field to Content Types in our collaboration sites and Document Center, and set default to “Departments:Marketing”

46 46 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Dark Secrets of MMS

47 47 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. Dark Secrets of MMS No granular security on tag definitions or tags as applied No meta-metadata You can define products and group them hierarchically, but you can’t add a list price and then navigate or refine to find content by price Can’t tag a tag, can’t rate a tag, can’t “like” a tag Can’t organize “personal” tags Client application support limitations SharePoint Workspace 2010 can read but not write MMS tags InfoPath browser client can’t read or write MMS tags

48 48 ©2011 Quest Software, Inc. All rights reserved.. The 9 10 Some Adoption Rules 1.Start small. Do NOT put everything in a term set. 2.Find “ friendlies”. Introduce keywords to users who understand the benefits 3.Use default tags in context. 4.External data. Use BCS if tag definitions are outside SharePoint (G/L codes) 5.Understand the security model and don’t put “secret” terms in a term store. 6.Extend administrative access for nontraditional administrators (e.g. corporate records staff) 7.Plan for and deploy centralized content types. 8.If security requirements are simple - and document sharing is important, use the Document Center to centralize document storage, and use content types and tags to classify docs. 9.Watch usage patterns for keywords and search. Unused typos in a keyword field (e.g. “holidya list”) can be deleted, and new project names can be promoted! 10.Synonyms! Synonyms! Synonyms! 11.Taxonomy does NOT belong to IT!!!
