Information Architecture and the Coming Digital Renaissance

Thursday, April 7, 11:00am-12:00pm

Agile methodologies have demonstrably improved software development, creating effective Minimum Viable Products and final deliverables with more success than ever before.

Yet the outcomes of projects can often miss the expectations of the project champions, either in terms of the scale of what was delivered or its fit with what they thought they were trying to describe.

Software can be better. Projects that are developed with an architectural focus on structural integrity, meaning, and place-making result in happier stakeholders, higher project completion rate, and true integration with enterprise initiatives.

This talk describes how Information Architecture can profoundly change the way that software is made. It covers the major concepts of architectural thinking, places it in context with other software disciplines, and shows how it can address the most common challenges of truly successful software development.
