Leshoto Mphahlele, Tiko Iyamu

Abstract

Many organizations strive to develop strategy which could holistically unify impact of information across the organization. Information is increasingly critical in the operations of organizations’ processes and activities including its role in maintaining competitiveness. Management of, cost of delivery and cohesiveness of information flow in the organizations is continuingly prevalence in Information Technology (IT) challenges. Most IT managers find themselves with the challenge of integration, consolidation, categorization, classification and management of information usage and sharing. Due to these widely shared challenges, over the last decade and across the globe, organizations have attempted to seek various solutions, which include Enterprise Information Architecture (EIA). This paper examines how EIA can best be leveraged, exploited, or otherwise used to provide business value, through sets of principles. The research brings about a fresh perspective and new methodological principles required in the deployment of information architecture in an organization.
