Understanding Organizational Skills
In this chapter, we explore assessing the skills present in an organization that are critical to the successful design, deployment, and management of the future state information architecture for Big Data and the Internet of Things projects. Covering the topic of skills at this point in the book might cause you to scratch your head. Isn't it premature to be evaluating the skills in our organization before we define in some detail the future state information architecture? After all, the information architecture should match the business requirements, and we described how to gather those requirements in the previous chapters. We also described creating a broad vision of what the future architecture could look like much earlier in our methodology. We might assume that we can now take the business requirements and begin planning details about the future state information architecture.
