5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, concise and a must for anyone using information, 24 Sep 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Information First: Integrating Knowledge and Information Architecture for Business Advantage (Paperback)
I would recommend this book to anyone who works with information. There are plenty of books about technical architectures, and I've looked at books on enterprise architecture, data architecture, business architecture and process architecture - but they all end up talking about technology. This book is different. It's the first one that I've come across that really deals with information. It starts from the premise that information is a resource, but that most organizations don't have the infrastructure to look after it as such. I liked the eight factors that the book is based around as these really tied in with my experience and makes the whole process easier to understand. There are plenty of practical tips, with lots of examples and case studies that explain clearly how to use the techniques. Unlike many books that I read, this one is grounded in reality; the authors have obviously used these techniques, and they are explained so that anyone could use them. I also liked the simplicity of this approach; it isn't based on the use of a specific piece of software, and the ideas would be useful for anyone from a business or IT background if they wanted to really make use of corporate information.
