Title
Developing a scaleable information architecture for an enterprise-wide consolidated information management platform

Abstract
Purpose - This article aims to address the concept of information architecture as a way of visualising and describing the various information assets and the interaction of these assets within an enterprise. Design/methodology/approach - The establishment of the information architecture is illustrated through a case study within a large conglomeration of companies requiring scaleable information architecture in order to address its information requirements. Executives who are considered influential in the overall management of the group were interviewed. Findings - The requirements expressed during the interview process, as well as observations made during meetings and general discussions with the various role-players within the enterprise, gave the project team the necessary confirmation of the information requirements of the enterprise. Research limitations/implications - As there is no direct integration between the underlying systems and networks, this had to be taken into consideration for the design of the information architecture. Originality/value - The information architecture established in the enterprise forms the basis of support in delivering future information requirements for the enterprise.
