What is Information Management?
The focus of Information Management is the ability to capture, manage, preserve, store and deliver the right information to the right people at the right time. Information management requires the adoption and adherence to guiding principles that include*:
1) Information assets are corporate assets. This principle should be acknowledged or agreed upon across the organization otherwise any business case and support for IM will be weak.
2) Information must be made available and shared. Of course, not all information is open to anyone, but in principle the sharing of information helps the use and exploitation of corporate knowledge.
3) Information the organization needs to keep is managed and retained corporately. In other words, the retention and archiving, of information. If you save a document today, you expect it to be secured and still available to you tomorrow.
People and systems depend on an underlying infrastructure to communicate and or process information. The infrastructure is a combined set of hardware, software, networks, facilities, etc. (including all of the information technology-related equipment) used to develop, test, deliver, monitor, control, or support a service. Associated people, processes, and documentation are not part of IT Infrastructure.
Our team helps you shift through what you have, assess and implement an optimized Information Management system that’s organized, efficient and effective.
