Use Term Store and Taxonomy to Manage Metadata in SharePoint

We spent a considerable amount of time searching for a meaningful quote from an authoritative resource on the value proposition for Taxonomy and Term Store for global business users of SharePoint. Sorry to say we couldn’t find one. To put it plainly & simply, developing useful Taxonomies with Term Store is an absolutely critical undertaking that transforms SharePoint into an effective enterprise content repository. We define an effective enterprise content repository as any storage solution for enterprise data that includes an accurate search and retrieval process. Without an accurate search and data retrieval process SharePoint cannot perform the role of an enterprise content repository. Further, the objective of gathering useful Business Intelligence (BI) from enterprise data will be thwarted if an accurate search and retrieval process is missing.
