Manage Information for Maximum Value
Achieving maximum value from your organization’s data takes a comprehensive, yet flexible, Information Architecture. This architecture optimizes putability and findability, so data is well organized, easily managed, quickly accessible, and efficiently utilized. Your Information Architecture specifies input and output policies and procedures; manages repositories of documents and historical data for user groups or speciﬁc projects; deﬁnes major and minor content items, along with their associated metadata, for each part of an organization; ensures a consistent information management approach throughout a content item’s lifecycle; and brings alignment across supporting elements for a given content item. It deﬁnes the value of information for the organization — and ensures that value is at its maximum.

As they say, knowledge is power. This is no different with a SharePoint implementation. You must have a plan to manage and organize your information. This is one of the most important parts of any SharePoint implementation. The plan will help you ensure that information is easy to find and that content is easy to access within your sites. Your information and the management of it is only as good as the metadata applied to the content and the search capabilities designed to index and query it. As with most SharePoint projects, this is a continuous and evolving plan and will grow and change as you mature the platform within your environment.
