Data architecture & system design for information professionals


Managing records in place means that working with multiple systems with different data architectures. As a result,  data modelling and system design has become a necessary skill set for information managers.

As information professionals we need to know how to integrate information governance controls (i.e. classification schemes and retention schedules) into a range of business systems.

System design is the process (or art) of defining the data, components, modules, interfaces, and architecture, for a system to satisfy specific requirements.​ For example, how can we design the data architecture in SharePoint to optimise both business and compliance requirements? Or how can we design our information controls to harmonise across multiple systems?

 This course is designed to provide information governance professionals with basic skills to design, develop, modify and deploy typical information governance controls into business information systems.
