© 2006 The MITRE Corporation. All rights reserved Overview What’s a decision-support tool? What’s an information architecture framework (IAF)? How can information architectures support the decision-maker? –Examples Take-aways 3
© 2006 The MITRE Corporation. All rights reserved Decision-Support Tool purposes ** To check that “everything is OK” To confirm the “obvious” To compare “actual performance” against formal or informal goals or constraints To identify what is “out-of-the-ordinary” To find a small, significant piece of information To figure out how something “works” To “work around” normal channels To do side-by-side comparisons of like items, quantities, etc. To compare the same type of information for discovering trends and relationships [e.g., in different time periods] To convey information in a more digestible manner To support “what-if” analysis or forecasting To create a “report of record” To help advocate a position 4 ** http://www.umsl.edu/~subramaniana/DSS_tools.html INTUIT ANALYZE / REPORT EXPLORE / VISUALIZE

All rights reserved We manage information because… We can Someone tells us we have to It’s a valuable corporate asset It supports decision-making All of the above 5 CLAIM: Information architecture enables decision-makers to answer the question: Are we managing the right, high-quality, actionable, timely information we need to make our key decisions?

Activities/processes that produce and consume information Structure of and relationships among the information –Conceptual & logical data models of the enterprise (i.e., information requirements) –Ontologies, taxonomies, vocabularies; metadata, schemas –Authoritative data sources; access control rules Information infrastructure (IT) –Data storage; data transport; data services –Information assurance –Standards and standard products Implementation strategy and guidance –Information management policy & Guidance –Ways and means for creating the above descriptions Governance, roles & responsibilities, data engineering, configuration management, verification & validation (V&V), authoritative data sources
