ENTERPRISE INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE

Architecture follows Strategy

A primary objective of information architecture is business enablement - the ability to provide business users with access to quality information in a timely fashion that can be used to drive actionable decision-making. While most organizations have some of the necessary components of information architecture, most do not have a best-practice architecture that fully enables business users to make the informed decisions necessary to proactively and better manage their business.

To achieve excellence in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), Enterprise Information Architecture is the next step of the Enterprise Information Strategy. To be truly in control of enterprise information architecture, an organization's journey must incorporate the vital elements for success. There are four vital elements in this effort:

  • Current Architecture Assessment: Based on the Information Strategy Roadmap, an information architecture assessment is required to evaluate the organization's capabilities in several areas, like Information Metrics and Processes, Information Infrastructure, Information Consistency, Information Governance, Information Delivery, Information Metadata, Information Quality and Information Privacy and Security.
  • Future State Logical Architecture: Often the first place to start is by creating a visualization of the processes. Information is created by successive layers of abstraction and translation, stored in data warehouses, data marts, etc , and users are examined in how they get to the information and how they use or share it, as well asthe security around that information. This will enable you to see the major focus of your company’s information needs aligned with the enterprise information strategy.
  • Future State Physical Architecture: This would include the physical representation of the defined architecture, to address key components like: Information Metrics and Processes, Information Infrastructure, Information Consistency, Information Governance, Information Delivery, Information Metadata, Information Quality and Information Privacy and Security. This would also include the infrastructure roadmap associated with the actual setup of the proposed architecture.
  • Implementation Roadmap: This would include the detailed implementation roadmap to determine the gap and the costs associated to implement the proposed architecture. Acxius’s Enterprise Information Architecture Services can help you in this effort by creating a high-performance and scalable architecture to achieve your EIM goals - thus taking your business to the next level in the process.
