Information Architecture

Information Architecture is a way to define and map a product or application. By gathering the Business Requirements and/or conducting Information Asset interviews with staff, the Information Architect (IA) can then create diagrams and prototypes to ensure the team’s input has been captured and all functionalities are covered.

IA’s also create Taxonomies to ensure the right content is being served up by search engine and relational modules. The idea is to get the engineering right the first time!
