The metadata that is lost when Internet of Things and mobile app data go unindexed is a real problem for search engine companies trying to harness sensor and app-created content. However, this loss is our gain! Affelt discusses deep linking, sensor data, and app indexing initiatives by Google and others and explores opportunities for info pros to morph into roles as curators and taxonomists of hidden and potentially lost data. Fulvio looks at breaking down silos, shifting toward a service-oriented architecture, and building a foundation for digital product innovation. She discusses leveraging taxonomy, ontology, and text analytics to organize 128 years ofNational Geographiccontent.
