Front Cover

Routledge, 2006 - Business & Economics - 212 pages
Information has become a much used word in organisational life. It is often used to refer to what is processed and provided by computers and other electronic devices. However there is a large amount of information and knowledge that is neither captured by nor represented in these computer-based information systems. Consequently, information management (IM) should be seen as the conscious process by which information is gathered and used to assist in decision making at all levels of an organisation.
This book provides a clear and concise overview of Information Management covering the key aspects of infrastructure, design, information assets and managing information.
Part 1 explores the diversity and changing nature of managing the information management function.
Part 2 investigates the role of information as an organisational resource.
Part 3 focuses on 'managing organisational data and information' and includes the main ways that organisational data is managed prior to decision making activity
Part 4 examines the role of information management in organisational strategy and change. This establishes that the complexity of the information management challenge increases considerably when it penetrates to the heart of an organisation's activity.

* First book to provide an overview which covers the key aspects of infrastructure, design, information assets and managing in an information age
* Concise, affordable and quality selection of papers and extracts
