Abstract

In the early days of computing, technology simply automated manual processes with greater efficiency. The new organizational context provides input into the data architecture and is the primary tool for the management and sharing of enterprise data. It enables architects, data modelers, and stakeholders to identify, classify, and analyze information requirements across the enterprise, allowing the right priorities for data sharing initiatives. Data architecture states how data are persisted, managed, and utilized within an organization. Data architecture is made up of the structure of all corporate data and its relationships to itself and external systems. In far too many situations, the business community has to enlist the assistance of IT to retrieve information due to the community's inconsistency, lack of intuitiveness, or other factors. The goal of any architecture should illustrate how the components of the architecture will fit together and how the system will adapt and evolve over time.
