At last, a book about information, not data!,
This review is from: Information First: Integrating Knowledge and Information Architecture for Business Advantage (Paperback)
This book is an excellent introduction to the subject of information architecture and will be useful to any large organisation that plans to build towards consistency rather than perpetuating a stovepipe mentality.
The mix of case studies and guidelines shows how to architect an information model that harmonises the language used by people working in an organisation - no mean feat for a large decentralised organisation. An integrated information architecture, as proposed by the authors, allows companies to align different views of their organisation and to talk in a consistent way about how they want to change and manage their business to meet new challenges. The architecture enables an organisation to understand the implications, impact and cost of proposed changes and to design value adding solutions.
