The Utilization of Information Architecture at the Enterprise Level

White Paper Published By: DATAVERSITY

Type:  White Paper
Length:  56 pages

This report investigates the level of Information Architecture (IA) implementation and usage at the enterprise level. The primary support for the report is an analysis of a 2013 DATAVERSITY™ survey on Data and Information Architecture.

Modern enterprises need the ability to identify the movement of every data asset throughout the entire information stream; from creation to deletion. Yet, as the results of this survey demonstrate, such ability is not a reality for many organizations.

The survey highlights some of the primary areas of struggle, including enterprise-wide terminology confusion, lack of future implementation plans, questions on what should be involved in an information architecture, use of enterprise data models, manual versus automated integration systems, MDM initiatives, consideration about Data Virtualization, and others.
