published by Gartner shows

and not finding it
 2 hours spent on recreating information which already exists
Problem: Business good in creating contents and not effective in
managing it
Solution: The process which can help Business manage data is called
Information Architecture

What is Information Architecture
 IA is about defining user experience in
context to data and business process
 IA defines how we create, organize, search,
use and manage data
"It is all about making data more efficient and useful"

Information Management Challenges
Abundance of
content leads to
information
overload
Poor Navigation and
Data presentation
results in increased
time consumption
for users to navigate
the SharePoint
environment
Poor search
experience as no
data governance
is defined
Non practical
Metadata
structure makes
it very difficult
to use it
"Before you put SharePoint to any use, IA exercise must be done"

What will SharePoint get out of IA experience
1. Site structure based on business and functional requirements
2. Guidelines on how to manage and present data
