People often think of enterprise information architecture as the practice of harmonizing the design and usability of an enterprise’s many disparate internet and intranet sites. However, information architects can add further value to the enterprise which they serve. Information architects can use their techniques and methods to provide more of an impact to their organization than designing and implementing computer based user interfaces. Information architecture can organize, align and exploit information across the enterprise.
The impact and scope of enterprise information architecture can range from the mild: mapping paper based forms and reports; to the sublime: aligning organizational critical mission, policy and administrative information.
