Use best practice patterns to understand and architect manageable, efficient, information supply chains that help you leverage all your data and knowledge.
In the era of “Big Data”, information pervades every aspect of the organization. Therefore, architecting and managing information is a multi-disciplinary task. Now, two pioneering architects present proven architecture patterns that fully reflect this reality. Using their pattern language, you can accurately characterize the information issues associated with your own systems, and design solutions that succeed over both the short- and long-term.
Building on the analogy of a supply chain, the authors explain how information can be transformed, enriched, reconciled, redistributed and utilized in even the most complex environments. Through a realistic, end-to-end case study, they help you blend overlapping information management, SOA, and BPM technologies that are often viewed as competitive.
Using this book’s patterns, you can integrate all levels of your architecture – from holistic, enterprise, system-level views down to low-level design elements, You can fully address key non-functional requirements such as the amount, quality and pace of incoming data. Above all, you can create an IT landscape that is coherent, interconnected, efficient, effective, and manageable. Click to read more.
