Metataxis goes on the beat with Information Architecture framework

UK Constabulary chooses Metataxis for Information Architecture project

Nov 22 – Metataxis supports UK police force with a new Information Architecture framework.

Bound by strict data compliance regulations and governance rules, many public sector organisations are challenged with meeting their information management requirements.

Metataxis is thrilled to be supporting a UK constabulary address these challenges with the development of a new Information Architecture (IA) framework for Microsoft 365.

This new framework will consider the best ways to structure and manage information stored in Microsoft 365 applications across the organisation, including Microsoft Teams, SharePoint and OneDrive. We will also look at how they manage compliance in Microsoft Purview to create a well-defined, compliant, Information Architecture (IA) framework.

This comprehensive plan will set out recommendations and parameters for a successful Information Architecture implementation, providing a solid base for the team to start building their architecture and subsequently roll out the Microsoft 365 project.

We are also helping the IT team to develop a clear information governance framework which will define the roles and responsibilities within the organisation to ensure success of the Information Architecture project.

Explains Siobhan King, Senior Consultant at Metataxis: “Responsible for lots of personal data, security and compliance is vital for all public sector organisations. Following a well-defined Information Architecture framework, this UK police constabulary will be well placed to begin the successful implementation of their Information Architecture for Microsoft 365 and remain confident that all governance and compliance regulations are met.”

The project commenced in October 2022 and is expected to be completed early next year.

It was 20 years ago today…

Twenty years ago, a dot-com software development manager (me) and a publishing director (Judi Vernau) decided to form Metataxis. We both felt that this intriguing new discipline of “Information Architecture” was something that had promise for the future, and was something we could do well at given our backgrounds. 

Twenty years later we are still here with both Metataxis UK and Metataxis NZ. Along the way, Metataxis has had, and still has some fantastically talented individuals, who’ve delivered endless value to our clients in information architecture and information management. 

But enough of the self-congratulations! In a series of posts over the coming weeks, I’ll be looking back at how information management has changed over the last 20 years. I’ll even make some predictions about the next 20 years. Watch this space…
