What is Enterprise Information?


No matter how you define your enterprise, it runs on information provided through technology. Successful enterprises pay attention to three critical areas:

People
Who generate, use and share information, and their cultural context

Process
How they use information efficiently and effectively

Technology
Which enables the generation, sharing and securing valuable information assets

Finding solutions for optimal use of information within organizations, to support decision-making processes or day-to-day operations, is always a challenge. An enterprise trying to manage enterprise information faces a world of complexity that is compounded by the continual evolution of information technology.

What is Enterprise Information?

No matter how you define your enterprise, it runs on information provided through technology. Successful enterprises  pay attention to three critical areas:

People
Who generates and uses information - knowledge workers and decision makers

Process
How they use information efficiently and effectively

Technology
What technology is made available to them - its accuracy, quality and timeliness

 

Finding solutions for optimal use of information within organizations, to support decision-making processes or day-to-day operations, is always a challenge.  An enterprise trying to manage enterprise information faces a world of complexity that is compounded by the continual evolution of information technology.
