Patrick C. Walsh
Now with the BBC I have been involved with Quality management in the automotive industry for more than 25 years and I came to IA through producing online Quality and Environmental manuals for automotive component supply companies. I have developed and expanded the concept of the online manual to include relevant internal and external information required to (hopefully) maintain and increase the organisation's effectiveness. I have realised that the effectiveness of the system relies on how the information is formatted, linked and structured. Over the past few years I have developed an enterprise information system for a large, complex local government department. I am presently employed at the BBC in Future Media and Technology as an information architect looking at intranets and the semantic web.
