The role of information is so important that a new function has emerged; the Information Management (IM) Function. This function is concerned with all aspects of managing information within organisations. However, the growth in the use of information technology has meant that many people confuse information management with the management of the information technology. Whilst this is an important aspect of the management function, it only tells part of the story. Information management (IM) is broader than this and should be seen as the conscious process by which information is gathered and used to assist in decision making at all levels of an organisation. This book provides a set of readings which aim to bridge the gap between the hard a soft aspects of this database
