Information architecture is the practice of organizing knowledge. Like building architecture, it involves designing and constructing an effective structure. For companies creating an information architecture strategy allows users to better manage and find information.

Enterprise Architecture Strategy.pdfl

In short, everyone! Keeping knowledge organized and accessible helps organizations accomplish more together. Without an information architecture strategy, knowledge can easily become disorganized, hard to use and outdated.

If accommodations to the architecture do not work, then the architecture must make the accommodations. The architecture must provide the foundation for flexibility and evolution. At the same time, however, the architecture must provide points of stability. It is this stability that allows for organizational learning and improvement, leading to excellence.

Given this positioning of enterprise and system architecture as the critical link between business strategy and effective strategy execution in a dynamic and volatile world, it is reasonable then to ask: What is strategy? Further, what is architecture strategy and how does one create and implement architecture strategy?

As an architect at any level, you have a role to play in the strategy process at that level, from product strategy to platform and portfolio strategy to business strategy (Malan and Bredemeyer, 2002). This gives you an opportunity to learn about strategy, just as your peers in management learn about strategy, from the product up. In this primer, however, we focus on business strategy, and the most direct relevance is for enterprise architects (IT background) and chief architects (product development background).

These days, more than ever, enterprise architects are the driving forces behind digital transformation initiatives and the vital link between IT and business. This book enables the readers to become self-sufficient Enterprise Architects by enabling them to understand the business strategy and design the technology landscape, encompassing systems, data, applications, platforms, and enterprise tools, following that strategy.

Your Enterprise Architecture strategy is the defined process of translating business vision and strategy into effective enterprise change by creating, communicating and improving the key requirements, principles and models that describe the enterprise's future state and enable its evolution.

Many organizations have attempted to create highly centralized, control-oriented approaches to data and information architectures. Previously known as information engineering and now as master data management, these top-down approaches are often not well suited to supporting a broad data strategy. Although they are effective for standardizing enterprise data, they can inhibit flexibility, making it harder to customize data or transform it into information that can be applied strategically. In our experience, a more flexible and realistic approach to data and information architectures involves both a single source of truth (SSOT) and multiple versions of the truth (MVOTs). The SSOT works at the data level; MVOTs support the management of information.

The key innovation of our framework is this: It requires flexible data and information architectures that permit both single and multiple versions of the truth to support a defensive-offensive approach to data strategy. 350c69d7ab
