Information Management is primarily concerned with the management and retrieval of information, including the generation, storage and disposal of documents, in a variety of structured and unstructured formats.

Information Management Systems encompass and capture a broad array of mediums and formats, including the management of hardcopy and electronic documents, images, email and many other objects such as books, maps, photographs or machine-readable materials.

The inability to manage information well, typically incurs large unnecessary expense and can create a confused view of an organisations’ information assets.

“When asked to nominate the greatest challenge in system implementation, 47% of respondents to an Ernst and Young survey said it was the inability to access all relevant information, and a further 36% indicated internal organisational issues, with only 6% admitting the ability to install the technology was the primary problem”
