Mission Driven System Integration (MDSI)
ISM begins with a process. This process entails four distinct steps: We look at the mission of the organization; we determine the assets required to carry out that mission; we visualize the data; and then we share that visualization for collaborative purposes. We call this process mission driven system integration (MDSI). MDSI is the design approach that is focused on improving client productivity by presentation of data as a picture. In this way data becomes information. A picture is worth a thousand words is the old saying. Finally, MDSI shares this picture throughout the enterprise.
