Do I need information analysis?
If you are involved in responsive web design, web site makeovers, content strategy, or document management, you need to understand the structure of the information you are dealing with.
Information analysis will let you look at artefacts such as web pages, sites, documents, or sets of documents and identify the different information components that they contain. Then you can see more clearly how to put them back in different ways, perhaps for different users, or mobile, or in a content strategy setting. You will see new opportunities for navigation and presentation more easily too.

Here are infographics for some powerful information analysis techniques.
