  • Increase sales
  • Improve onboarding of new users
  • Evolve without disrupting existing customers and stakeholders
  • Build platforms powered by AI

Leaders in Information Strategy

Without a high-level information strategy, organizations often struggle with their highly specific taxonomies and controlled vocabularies.

Common issues we address:

  • Database schemas are created for new systems with no consideration for the people and processes required to maintain them
  • Findability issues: customers can’t find products; employees can’t find information
  • Analytics are nearly impossible
  • Operational inefficiency and high administrative costs
  • Inability to keep pace in our rapidly changing digital landscape

Factor will create an information strategy that allows your organization to align around one voice and a single vocabulary by:

  • Developing an information strategy that’s scalable and adaptable to change 
  • Prioritizing cost-saving and revenue-driving activities through a realistic roadmap
  • Optimizing content creation and publishing, focusing only on the relevant content that your consumers value
  • Streamlining data acquisition to enable actionable insights from analytics
  • Realizing the value of your organization’s data and information


Factor has developed an enterprise information maturity model, that places organizations on a spectrum from least to most mature.
