“People should learn how to play Lego with their minds. Concepts are building bricks.”

- Vitorino Ramos, 1997

Precise definitions of business concepts and terminology have become recognized as a fundamental foundation for those organizations who wish to succeed and continue to exploit new opportunities in the Information Age. A Shared Business Vocabulary provides the means for clear communications, and is often very valuable when organizations or operations are consolidated for greater efficiencies or economies of scale.

A clear and common vocabulary, and rules defined for effective governance and use of that vocabulary, can ensure better business communication across the organization, with business partners, and can also be sure that there is a precise correspondence with regulatory requirements impacting your industry.


Envizion provides services to help your organization to:

  • Assess your organization’s requirements in the area of Business Vocabulary and Rules, based on the industry or environment in which you operate
  • Investigate existing vocabularies (often industry-specific), and evaluate their applicability and usefulness to your organization
  • Determine taxonomies (classification schemes) for information which are easily understood and useful to the business
  • Create the organization and frameworks for a Shared Business Vocabulary for continuous improvement in this area, respecting any Information Governance initiatives relative to business vocabulary and definitions
  • Ensure effective linkage to technical and business naming standards, as well as Meta-data services, which will be used throughout the information life-cycle


Envizion can help you and your organization to speak the same business language, discuss the same business concepts, and avoid misunderstandings when managing information as a business asset.
