 Enterprise Information

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.
