Waleed Nema, Saudi Aramco
The author's simple model for an information services architecture is intended as a common frame of reference for both business and technical practitioners and groups various aspects of computing into four distinct layers based on data processing stages. These layers cover data life-cycle states from the time data is generated, stored, and analyzed, to when it's delivered and used. The model incorporates a link with typical enterprise architecture layers.
