Survey Seeks to Understand the Voice of the Customer in the Microsoft Marketplace and the Maturity Level of Metadata Management

Concept Searching is pleased to announce its annual metadata survey is now available http://www.conceptsearching.com/wp/2015-sharepoint-and-office-365-metadata-survey/. The survey, in its third year, is open to the public and specifically targets organizations that currently use or are planning to use SharePoint, either on-premise or online and as part of Office 365, deployed on Azure or another cloud platform, or with OneDrive for Business.  

Concept Searching will be accepting survey responses until March 31st, 2015. Individuals who submit a completed response will be entered in a drawing to win a full conference pass to Microsoft Ignite http://ignite.microsoft.com, the premier Microsoft event to be held May 4th - 8th, 2015 at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL. In addition, Concept Searching will be giving away free Bose SoundTrueT audio headphones monthly. Complete contest rules can be accessed on-line http://www.conceptsearching.com/wp/free-microsoft-ignite-conference-pass-rules/. 

In the past, the survey responses have provided valuable insight into information and content management challenges faced by many organizations. Unlike many surveys, the Concept Searching survey receives responses from management as well as business and IT professionals who must solve challenges and craft solutions at a foundational level. The ability to capture the voice of the customer provides a wealth of information on current and future objectives. The survey findings from last year can be accessed here http://www.conceptsearching.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/downloads/whitepapers/CS_SharePoint_Office365_Survey.pdf.

A key objective of this year's survey is to capture information on the level of metadata management maturity in organizations. Analysts and statistics support the premise that unstructured content is very rarely managed as a corporate asset. Unstructured content is a source of value but can also work against an organization in litigation or non-compliance issues. Last year's survey indicated overwhelmingly that metadata management was relegated to end user tagging, with essentially no metadata management. Concept Searching is hoping to determine if organizations have become more savvy about information governance and metadata management.
