Information Architecture

Making such structural design as information architecture with the help of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software, especially in case you have Enterprise Architecture Diagrams Solution downloaded from ConceptDraw STORE application, is always much simpler rather than doing the same thing from a scratch. The main feature of the well developed drawing product, mentioned above, is that you can always use the described solution full of the pre-made vector shapes for explaining such terms as “Enterprise”, “Business Model”, “Operating model”, “Governance”, “Business Capabilities”, “People”, “Business Processes”, “Technology”, “Business Intent sector”, “Business Design sector”, “Influencers”, “Drivers”, “Partners”, “Box (level 1)”, “Box (level 2)”, “Box (level 3)”, etc.

Having the pre-made examples of the diagrams, such as “Enterprise Architecture Diagram”, “Enterprise Architecture Diagram Template”, “Enterprise Architecture Diagram — ISE Enterprise Architecture Framework”, “Enterprise Architecture Diagram — TEAF Work Products” and “Enterprise Architecture Domains Diagram” can simplify your work with creating your own Enterprise Architecture Diagrams as you can always use one of already offered in the “Enterprise Architecture Diagrams Solution” layouts, which can become a base for your own professionally looking drawings.

Information Architecture *

Example 1. Information Architecture

Knowing information architecture as the structural design of some information environment, it is also interesting to get to know that it involves science as well as the art of labelling and organizing different websites, online communities, software and intranets in order to be able to support both findability and usability. It is also an emerging community of the practice, which is known to be focused on using the principles of both architecture and design to the digital landscape. Usually, the mentioned process is known to be involving a concept or some model of information, both used and later applied to activities, which are known to be requiring the explicit details of some complex, usually large, information systems. The mentioned activities can include database development as well as library systems.

Information architecture is simply known to be considered as something founded by Richard Saul Wurman. Nowadays there is a growing network of the active IA specialists who are known to be constituting the Information Architecture Institute. Any information architecture has a few different meanings, depending on which of the branches of information technology or information systems it is used in. Thus, it can be used in the structural design of the shared information environments, the art and/or science of organizing and labelling some websites, online communities, software and/or intranets for supporting the findability as well as usability.

Information architecture can be also used in an emerging community of the practice, which is known to be focused on upbringing the principles of either design or architecture, or both, to the digital landscape. The combination of the process of labelling, search, organization and navigation systems within some particular intranets and websites can be also the field of activity where Information architecture is a commonly used term.

Enterprise Architecture Diagrams Library Design Elements

In order to extract some required parameters or data of the Engineering Designs during the process of creating a so-called “knowledge-base” for linking different systems as well as different standards, Information architecture is also a necessary thing to involve. Information architecture can be also a navigational aid as well as a blueprint to the content of the so-called “information-rich” systems. It is also known to be a subset of the data architecture, where some usable data/information is known to be constructed in. Such data can be designed or arranged in a fashion most useful or/and simply holistic to the users of such data.

The practice of a process of organizing some information, content and/or functionality of some website, presenting the best user experience, having an information as well as the services which are being easily findable and usable (due to the development as well as web design), is also known to be connected with term of “information architecture”. The most difficulty within such processes is to establish a common definition for the "information architecture" term, known to be arising partly from its own existence in the multiple fields. For instance, in the field of the systems design, the information architecture is simply one of the components of the enterprise architecture, known to be dealing with the information component while describing the structure of an enterprise itself.

Thus, as the definition of such term as “information architecture” is known to be well-established, at least within the field of systems design, it is known to be much more debatable within the context of the online information systems (such as websites). Sometimes, information architecture can involve more than just the organization of a website, but also the factors in user experience, considering the usability issues of the information design in this way.

Example 3. TEAF Work Products for EA Direction, Description and Accomplishment

The information design itself is a commonly known practice of presenting some information so it becomes effective as well as efficient for understanding it. The term itself has come to be used specifically within such field of activity as graphic design for displaying the information in an effective way, instead of making it attractive or using for the artistic expression. The term of information design is also known to be closely related to the field of data visualization, that is why it is known to be often taught as a part of the graphic design courses, as it is an explanation design, used for explaining the facts of the world, leading to knowledge as well as informed action.

Tree Network Topology Diagram →

When designing a network, it is important to take into account the hierarchy of network devices. When you have a root device you should consider a tree network topology that might have any number of lower levels as you might need. This technology is based on star and bus network topologies. This is a schematic representation of a Tree computer network topology. A tree topology means that some star networks are linked together. A star network is a topology of the local network where a central workstation is connected with each end-user computer or peripherals. A tree structure means that, the central nodes of these star networks are linked to a main cable (the Bus topology). So, a Tree network topology is a few Star networks connected into a Bus topology. This scheme can be applied to draw the particular physical or logical network diagrams using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.Tree Network Topology Diagram *

It's no secret that there is a list of skills that every average system administrator should have. And it's important to be able to manage domains via active directory technologies. The best way to keep all the details in mind is to draw a diagram representing users, groups and domains. This diagram represents an Active Directory Services (Active Directory Domain Services). It can be helpful for system and network administrators to organize a network physical and logical elements (domains, data bases, servers, network equipment, end-user computers etc.) into a secure and logical structure. The logical structure of Active Directory is a hierarchical organization of all network components. The data that is stored in Active Directory comes from some diverse sources. The Active Directory diagram created using ConceptDraw Active Directory Diagram solution. It shows allocating group policies and functions assigned to end users. It helps to plan, manage and maintain the certain user access scenario.Active Directory Diagram

Data Flow Diagram →

There are many ways to define the flow of information within a system. Structured-systems analysis method often uses data flow diagrams to show data flow, data storages and data processing visualization. These diagrams are easy to develop and quite useful. Here is a dataflow diagram presenting an example of the manufacturing process flow. The oval process shapes represent a process that controls data within the current system. The process may produce data or make some action based on data. Data flows are represented by lines. They show the movement of information through the system. The direction of the data flow is depicted by the arrow. The external entities are shown by rectangles. They represent the external entities interacting with the system. The data store objects (unclosed rectangles) are used to show data bases participating in a process flow.Data Flow Diagram *
