With a.k.a.® you can design glossaries that accommodate all of your needs. Once you have built your glossaries you can easily share it as reports built using the Built-in Report Writer, or by creating Customised Reports using XSL templates.
You can develop taxonomies in a variety of products such as MS Project and MS Excel. But is this the most cost effective solution? Specialist products like a.k.a.® were developed because relational database engines are needed to deliver functionality that MS Project and Excel just don’t have.
When a new energy corporation was formed through the merger of nine smaller utilities, electronic documents were found scattered across 20 servers, and countless personal computers. Managers complained that they could not go on leave without getting desperate calls regarding the location of key documents. Something had to be done.
Using a.k.a.® Information Governance Software, commonly known as a.k.a.® 3 to bring together and rationalise the taxonomies and metadata of merging organisations is an enormous time-saver and the most efficient way to achieve quality outcomes for both management and users.
When the ACT Territory Records Office (TRO) was tasked with developing a whole-of-government classification scheme and retention schedule, they realized that, without suitable tools, the process was going to take several years. However with a.k.a.® as their primary development tool, the TRO team managed to complete most of this task in less than 2 years.
The University of Melbourne uses a.k.a.® software to develop, maintain their Enterprise Classification Scheme and Records Retention and Disposal Schedule, then publish online, and upload into HP TRIM.
In 2005 a.k.a.® was selected by the State of Queensland as the tool of choice to build taxonomies and retention schedules. This contract is still in place today.
