Over the past nine chapters we have discussed the history of IA, research methods and tools, design and design implications, and IA applications in enterprises, web, mobile, and in the global setting. Coming to this closing chapter, let’s take one more look at IA itself, with a particular curiosity of its future in mind. What brings the IA community together and where will it lead us? What are the future trends in IA design? What are the relationships between IA practice and IA research? How can IAs structure make the maximum impact in organizations? In this chapter, we will discuss these questions and look beyond horizons for the future of information architecture.
