Traditionally companies have looked at their business model in terms of people, processes and technology and have implemented technology systems that are application-centric and/or process-centric.

This traditional approach has resulted in the information assets of the company being in a state of being disjointed and fragmented, hindering the company’s ability to take advantage of its information assets.
