SPEAKER: Joyce Ward, Manager of Taxonomies and Semantic Enrichment, LexisNexis

TOPIC: We will talk with Joyce about the evolution of her professional career from Digital to subsequent leadership positions at Northern Light and LexisNexis. We will explore the importance of controlled vocabulary (AKA taxonomy) and its relationship to search excellence, and ask why commercial operations with high value content, such as LexisNexis, invest intelligent human resources to deliver intelligent search outcomes. Joyce will also share thoughts on how the commercial content search experience can be replicated in the enterprise and comment on where organizations need to place their resources to achieve high quality search.

Previously at LexisNexis she was an Executive Custom Solutions Manager for over eight years.

She was also a Senior Manager for applications development of search and library systems and  Corporate Librarian at Digital Equipment Corporation.  Joyce received a BA from Bowdoin College and MLS from Columbia University in the City of New York.
