Data Architecture

Enterprise-level Data Architecture provides the basis for strong and effective control of data as it passes through an organization. It has both upward-facing (towards the business use of information and downward-facing (toward the storage and control of data in databases) functions, allowing it to bridge between the intended and actual nature of the data.

The most important data elements should have their life-cycles well understood and documented, and effective data governance should be put in place to ensure that data quality is consistently maintained. Data Architecture provides the underpinnings to this understanding and control, defining the authoritative nature of each data element, its path through the organisation, and the responsibilities for ensuring its quality.

At Doriq, we have many years experience in defining and implementing data architecture in large, complex organisations, and have the benefit of global thought leadership in several areas of data management. Our books have been cited by professional bodies as a major influence on the development of effective practices in this area over the last twenty years.
