• PebbleRoad were out observing how users actually do their jobs rather than just assuming the problems they faced were obvious, and designing apps that connected them to the data needed to support their tasks
• Straits Knowledge was working with graph databases to develop knowledge maps capable of being analysed for taxonomy-building

Any such mapping attempt will be always be provisional and subject to change. Such a mapping will have to find a balance between between having too little detail to be useful and too much detail to be manageable. And such a mapping faces the risks of any taxonomy that is being applied to taxonomists, such as differences in terminology and organising frameworks. Read the rest of this article here.
