Lost amid the conversation on big data and the accelerating advancement of just about every aspect of enterprise software that manages information are the things that hold it all together.

My new white paper, sponsored by Teradata, defines and discusses architecture for the modern competitive company. With a focus on Design Patterns and Implementation Alternatives and Architecture Principles and Advocated Positions, it outlines what information architecture is and its importance to an analytics strategy.
