An Information Model defines your organization’s information architecture and development strategies. Comtech’s information architects help develop a comprehensive Information Model that defines your information types and elements used within them, establishes a metadata model, suggests authoring guidelines and standards, and reviews mapping, linking, and reuse strategies.
In today’s continually expanding information glut, it can be difficult for users to find the content they need. Comtech consultants methodically guide your team through a rigorous design and categorization process to establish a comprehensive taxonomy focused on improving information accessibility.
To achieve maximum benefit from your resources, your organization needs mature and effective information- and product-development processes. Using the Information Process Maturity Model (IPMM), Comtech assesses your organization’s readiness for the work ahead. We evaluate the level of refinement or maturity of your processes and recommend critical strategies and tactics for improving your organization’s effectiveness.

Business case / strategic planning
Content assessment and information modeling

Knowing and understanding your customers is key to your company’s success. Comtech consultants facilitate customer site visits, customer partnering, and focus groups, and use tools such as questionnaires, individual interviews, group discussions, and on-site observations to gather the customer information you need.
