In Pursuit of Clarity: The Function of Information Architecture

Franklin Park, NJ (December 15, 2010) - As part of a continued effort to improve how information architecture is explained to technical and non-technical audiences, the latest DSIA™ Portal refinement elaborates on the objectives of information architecture. The updated page titled "The Function of Information Architecture" briefly explains key concepts of the DSIA definition:

"The function of information architecture within an organization is to simplify how people navigate and use information that connects to the Web."

Nathaniel Davis, founder of the DSIA Research Initiative, advises "if you're a practitioner looking to educate clients or other colleagues in your organization about the scope of information architecture, this page makes for a valuable reference that offers meaningful talking points for introductory and advanced discussion."
