Supporting Digital Transformations that empower processes to seamlessly engage, manage and use structured data. (Part One)
Step one, understanding your information architecture (IA).
Your organisation can reuse existing investments within your first step towards a coherent and engaging data-driven foundation.
Within your "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR) evaluation your organisation would have mapped its data and usage. Your organisation can use this existing investment within your migration.
If your organisation hasn't had to undergo this, your organisation's first step is to understand its information architecture (IA). This initial investment will provide your organisation with ongoing value.
Understanding your organisation's information architecture (IA) provides value by enabling it to understand existing vulnerabilities and how it can reduce risk using data, it will also allow your organisation's decision makers to better understand the information they have available to make more informed decisions in the future.
To map your information architecture (IA) departments within your organisation will need to contribute the information they handle and how it is utilised. To do this, your organisation will need to nominate key stakeholders within each line of business processes. These stakeholders will be responsible for contributing information structures as well as problems and bottlenecks currently impeding them.
To empower the greatest benefit from this information we recommend your organisation visualises it using flow charts. These flow charts will allow your organisation to make better decisions within your migration.
Information within these flow charts will not only be beneficial to your migration but also enable your organisation to understand where information is replicated and processes duplicated. This will enable your organisation to streamline line of business activities and reduce risks and wastage within processes.
