Purpose, Process, Knowledge,
Information and technology
Successful mission execution requires all of these elements working in harmony. We deploy a proprietary methodology, the culmination of thirty years of Dr. Jones' experience as an architect and CIO, to provide enterprises with the platform for success.
We worked with an emerging regulatory agency to develop their value stream and then focused on the work of their science organization. By engaging the organization's many subject matter experts, we gathered over seventy disparate data sources and brought them into a logical data model. The methodologies being used were effective and brought the organization's experts to agreement regarding the data necessary for success. With our team of information architects, WiseDesign developed each of the organization's structural elements so that it had an industry-standard format for accepting new applications, a clearly-understood and improved method for adjudicating applications, a metadata repository that defined the terminology they use, and an ontology to clarify industry terms. By the end of the project, the organization had the cohesion, tools, concurrence, and cumulative knowledge necessary to become a global leader in its regulatory area.
