Elevating The Role Of IRM For Business Effectiveness

The organization that is not managing its information cannot manage its business. Without managed, quality information, the enterprise cannot “know” what it needs to know to understand its customers and customer needs, manage operations, analyse its performance and make the strategic decisions for the future of the enterprise. This is even more crucial for service sector organizations, such as banks, insurance and government organizations whose products are, in fact, information.

Mr. English describes how you transform and elevate your data administration or data resource management to a function embraced as a critical competency. The principles used to manage other business resources, such as human and financial resources, apply to managing information and knowledge as strategic resources. Implementation of these principles is required to transform the enterprise from an Industrial-Age to a competitive Information-Age organization. This presentation discusses how the organization can harness the power of today’s information technology to exploit its information resources for competitive advantage and business effectiveness.

  • Why traditional approaches to data administration have failed to create positive impact and acceptance in the enterprise
  • Why the “systems approach” of application development has failed, and how we must replace it
  • Trends shaping the economy, business, and society; and its impact on IRM
  • The Information Age as a paradigm
  • From data administration to information stewardship
  • IRM in the e-business world: the virtual enterprise
  • The secrets to gaining and sustaining management commitment
