Researching, developing and fostering best practice information governance.
What we do
Synercon is a front-runner in information governance, operating throughout Australasia, the UK and North America. We’re dedicated to researching, developing and fostering best practice information governance.
With digital transformation, the old ways of managing information have become ineffective and irrelevant. The key to our future is to build artificial intelligence into our information systems and make the systems to do the work.
We enable the automation of information governance by building software tools for enterprise metadata, taxonomy and ontology management. We provide expertise in the design of intelligent data models that support auto-classification and auto-appraisal, and build state-of-the art taxonomies and ontologies.
Why we do it
Metadata plays a major role in information management. We use it to describe, find and discover, protect, appraise and dispose of our records.
With the ever-increasing volume and variety of information, the role of metadata in describing our information becomes more important. High quality, fit for purpose metadata is essential for effective decision making, research, analytics and information sharing.
But with information stockpiles growing astronomically, people don’t have the time nor the training to manually tag documents.
We need much smarter ways to assign consistent, relevant and high quality metadata to our documents.
How we do it
Building metadata models for automating information governance requires the right knowledge and the right tools.
We’ve been building metadata, taxonomies, ontologies and retention schedules for information governance since 2000. We understand information governance processes and the ISO standards that govern them.
We build software tools for enterprise metadata, taxonomy and ontology management.
We design intelligent data models that support auto-classification and auto-appraisal, and build state of the art taxonomies and ontologies.
We share our knowledge and methodologies to bolster your in-house information governance expertise.
