Today’s business strategies call for organizations to be more globally interconnected and enduser-driven. Organizations must also cope with increased scrutiny from compliance or regulatory mandates, which place greater demands on the transparency and accountability of information across their operations. In addition, business process improvement initiatives are exacerbating the need to migrate from legacy data structures to more agile data services and authoritative information sources that support the rapid assembly of business services and new solutions. Information is any collection of data that is processed, analyzed, interpreted, organized, classified or communicated in order to serve a useful purpose, present facts or represent knowledge in any medium or form. This includes presentation in electronic (digital), print, audio, video, image, graphical, cartographic, physical sample, textual, or numerical form. Information architecture is the means of providing a structured description of an enterprise’s information, the relationship of this information to business requirements and processes, applications and technology, and the processes and rules which govern it. Information is data put into action. Where a specific data element may exist on a server somewhere in one format or another, it has lesser business value until it is integrated with other data elements into an information package. Information is data with context. So where Data Architecture is necessary to contain and organize the manifold data resources into a manageable system, Information Architecture is necessary to combine those resources into a structure that allows the dissemination of that information to be captured, shared, analyzed, utilized, and governed throughout an enterprise, across all lines of business, within all departments, with confidence and reliability.
