A blueprint for knowledge representation. Tailored for you, designed with you.
Information Architecture is a difficult practice to define, let alone master. For some it is synonymous with the building of taxonomies and classification systems; others extend its scope to UI/UX, up to search and SEO. For us at Data Language it is all the above and much, much more. Information Architecture permeates all we do. IA is the first step on any project as an acid test for understanding your domain and specific business scenarios. We consider Information Architecture a sort of art, and we have come to be considered masters in its practical application.
If that sounds familiar, we should really talk about Linked data.
Breaking free from data silos can feel daunting. We understand that. That’s why we don’t dive into the data head first. Our designs are driven by commercial opportunities and tailored to your specific domain. It’s primarily about a business vision. Yours.
By creating a semantic blueprint of the problem space, we are able to cut through the complexity of your domain, reach a deep understanding of your drivers and requirements, and craft an information map to guide the most effective solution for you.

The only thing all models have in common is that they are all different. Because your needs are different, and your business domain will never perfectly align with another. It’s what sets your business apart.
It’s hard to solve problems when people both inside and outside your organisation have different names and understanding for the same things. Let’s fix that.
Organisations are far too complex to be modelled in their entirely. IA is to be kept simple and focussed on the problems at hand.
An introductory guide to tagging, Part 3. Why is good quality subject tagging so hard? The post looks at literature from library science to explore the root causes and possible solutions.
