At a time when information availability, online and off, is rising to unprescedented levels, almost anyone managing information should pause to think of a strategy to benefit from this digital bounty instead of being drowned by it.
As such, here are the many elements of information management you should consider when devising your very own “strategy for staying on top of things”:
Data – Databases, data warehouses, data cleansing, profiling, integration, metadata repositories, networked storage systems.
Content – Document management, web content management, records management, imaging.
Intelligence – Business intelligence, data extraction and mining, analysis, reporting, dashboards, performance management.
Search – Keyword search, content classification, categorization, entity extraction, taxonomy creation, document search, e-mail search.
Think of these elements as parts of your future strategy for winning in the information age. Whoever finds ways to inch ahead of everyone else in fields related to any one of these elements will stand to win big, especially in our increasingly networked world.
It’s not just about buying a bigger hard drive anymore, it’s about managing the information in such a way that truly empowers you.
