Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Information is like a blood stream in the body of an information-intensive enterprise. Effective information management is crucial to continuously optimize, innovate, transform, and sustain an enterprise. Information architecture is an integrated set of actionable artifacts that are defined and updated to address the stakeholder concerns, and are aligned with the information management strategy and investment plans.  The emerging trends of analytics, Big Data, cloud, digitisation, the Internet of Things, mobile, open data, social media pose several challenges to the acquisition, validation, ingestion, storage, analysis, protection, and monetization of information and analytics. Traditional approaches to information architecture come under pressure when an adaptive and flexible response is required to deal the emerging disruptors.

This Special Issue hopes to investigate what are the contemporary information architecture concepts, challenges, practices, technologies, and applications in various areas.
