interesting read in cio on the importance of “information design”:

“Like everyone else in an organization, IT professionals are aiming to pick up their pace and their reach. But while many companies are addressing the escalating demand for information by creating larger “storage bins” and making sure they can pull more information through their expansive networks, others have begun to realize that it’s just not going to be that easy.”

“Andersen Consulting’s Institute for Strategic Change asked IT executives if they had a process for developing actionable information, and they answered with a resounding no. Eighty-six percent
reported that they have no process or that they plan to use the traditional IT requirements definition and data-modeling processes. These are the same processes that have been instrumental in creating today’s nonactionable information environment. In either case, they aren’t talking about an information design process.”
