World IA Day 2017 Manchester

The theme of this year's World Information Architecture Day is Information Strategy and Structure.

In today’s world, organisations are required to rethink how to architect and manage information to maintain a competitive and organisational edge. Many are embracing strategies that are more flexible, moving away from isolated systems and departmental silos. These organisations recognise the need for information to be structured so that it is clear, usable, findable and understandable.

But, the need for information strategy and structure extends beyond the enterprise. Whether information is architected to inform algorithms, to bring awareness to important societal challenges, or to clearly communicate available resources to help those in need; information strategy and structure plays an important role in our everyday lives.

Join us for WIAD Manchester on Saturday February 18th, 2017. First release tickets are just £10.
