IFF Case Study

Knowledge Management and Business Intelligence systems prototypes

Case Study

  • BRAND:International Flavors and Fragrances (IFF)
  • TYPE:Knowledge management and business intelligence systems prototypes

The sensory market research department at IFF needed a knowledge management solution for their extensive collection of market research studies. This solution needed to have a complex taxonomy to reflect the diverse metadata and multiple search options including faceted navigation.

The company also needed business intelligence solution for building a database of product variants tested across sensory studies and associated product related metadata.

Using our extensive technology and research background, we prototyped both knowledge management and business intelligence solutions and created a roadmap for implementation.
