Simply put, Information Management (iM) is the process of collecting various forms of information, structuring it and then making sure it’s accessible for the right people at the right time.
Typically, information begins as unstructured data, which could come from a range of sources such as raw data, paper documents, electronic documents, audio content, images, video content, web pages and even knowledge inside someone’s head.
Managing this information involves the organisation and control over its structure, processing, storage and delivery – turning various forms of unstructured data into usable, structured information.
Organisations often use several solutions for different departments, processes and tasks. These single-purpose systems are usually unable to communicate with each other properly, resulting in manual work and poor usability.
By integrating your CRM, ERP and other business systems, every bit of information you need is in one place, while automated workflows help manage and improve efficiency.
