The IT Committee is working with DATAgility to spearhead the development and introduction of an industry taxonomy standard as well as provide education and awareness to our members.  DATAgility is a privately held company that helps develop high quality product data content for organizations.  This is the first step of many to get everyone speaking the same language and is a pathway to a potential data cooperative. 


Product categories will be developed and will be structured to enable effective web navigation and drill down by customers who shop on-line.  DATAgility will work on a new taxonomy development for up to twenty primary categories and will review and enhance the current industry standard.  They will begin with the development of common/core product categories and identify key attributes (size, material, etc.). 


Product knowledge will be added in conjunction with the development of the standard.
