Enterprise Information Architecture (EIA)

Enterprise information architecture (EIA) describes an enterprise's data structure and organization, including how employees collect, organize, and access information. An EIA can help improve business operations by streamlining a company's data management processes. While EIA deals with IT assets, it is a small part of a business's overall enterprise architecture, encompassing all aspects of the company, including its people, processes, and technologies.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Enterprise Information Architecture (EIA)

Enterprise architecture aims to realize a business's goals and objectives by addressing the entire enterprise, not just specific IT functions. A well-defined EIA can help companies achieve these goals by improving data management and communication between departments. By building a robust enterprise information architecture, small to midsize businesses can improve operational efficiency and competitiveness.
