art of information architecture

Spring has sprung and another IBM Press book is about to be born.  I’ve been following the Information Architecture discussions on Twitter and boy are people clamoring for definitive help in this area.  The book takes a fresh look at new developments including cloud computing.  Here’s what it covers:

Highlighting the importance of Dynamic Warehousing

Defining your Enterprise Information Architecture from conceptual, logical, component, and operational views

Using information architecture principles to integrate and rationalize your IT investments, from Cloud Computing to Information Service Lifecycle Management

Applying enterprise Master Data Management (MDM) to bolster business functions, ranging from compliance and risk management to marketing and product management

  • Implementing more effective business intelligence and business performance optimization, governance, and security systems and processes
  • Understanding “Information as a Service” and “Info 2.0,” the information delivery side of Web 2.0

Interested?  Amazon will have it available in a couple of weeks – in the meantime you can pre-order it here.
