Simply capturing and storing information can be a waste of time and money if that information is not treated – read ‘used’ – as an asset, according to an article on technology website TechTarget.com
“Traditionally, information was deployed for a transaction, then mentally discarded; today, information management is becoming the competitive edge for businesses in creating products, understanding customers, making buying decisions and a laundry list of action items,” said the author.
The article forms part of the website’s coverage of the recent Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) conference, which took place from 1 to 3 April in Florida, in the United States.
During the conference, information management professionals from around the globe reportedly agreed that information management needs to ‘get smarter’.
“Companies have realised that it’s no longer enough to amass, manage, archive and destroy information. They now have to analyse it for trends, insight and direction on day-to-day business decisions,” said the author.
