INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE OF FRACTAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS

Jānis Grabis, Mārīte Kirikova, Jānis Vanags

Abstract

The fractal approach has emerged as a promising method for development of loosely coupled, distributed enterprise information systems. This paper investigates application of information architecture in development of fractal information systems. Principles of designing the information architecture of fractal information systems as well as rules for analyzing the information architecture are developed. These rules are used to obtain problem-domain representations specifically suited for needs of individual fractal entities. The usage of the information architecture in implementation of the fractal information system for the university’s study programme development problem is demonstrated.
