Informatioin Management Strategy


A+ | A++ | A

The strategic consideration of information management is becoming increasingly important for organisations for a number of reasons:

  • The volume of information held and required to be analysed is increasing significantly
  • Regulatory pressures are increasing, requiring more accurate, consistent, transparent and auditable reporting and management of key business information.
  • Technology advances are enabling more information to be analysed faster and to be personalised to meet specific consumer needs, whenever and wherever required.

An Information Management Strategy articulates the overall vision, objective and approach in the context of managing the organisation's information assets to derive business value. In organisations that use an enterprise approach to Information Management, the IM Strategy sets the direction to establish and maintain a co-ordinated, integrated - IM environment across the enterprise.
