Pronunciation

/ˌɪnfərˈmeɪʃən ˈɑrkəˌtɛkʧər/

Definition

The design of the structure and interconnectivity of data entities and programs which are used to support data management.

Information architecture is important for outlining the constraints and requirements of a data set. With a robust architecture in place, the performance of a data project or an entire organization can be improved by allowing users to know where to find and enter information correctly. Information architecture can be a specific as the relationship between databases in a particular program to as broad as the relationships between programs and user interfaces. In addition, information architecture can be visualized graphically allowing it to be understood by a wider group of people.
