Do you have an information agenda?

The information agenda is an enterprise-wide plan for creating, delivering, and exploiting trusted information. Do you have one?

At the SIM conference last week in Orlando, the buzz was about information--its management and storage and how to make it available to the people in the company who need it.

The lack of trusted information - information that is accurate, timely and

relevant- is on the minds of CEOs and senior executives around the world.

The cost and complexity of managing huge volumes of data and content,

combined with the need to provide that information to every user for every

transaction, is driving CIOs to rethink their approach to information delivery.

According to IBM, what's needed is a paradigm shift from siloed organizational information

fiefdoms to the design and deployment of an enterprisewide information

infrastructure. Without it, companies will continue to struggle in reaching the

ultimate goal of optimizing business through advanced use of information.

CIOs now have access to a new strategy, planning and implementation

approach for turning trusted information from a vision into a reality: the

information agenda. An information agenda serves as both strategy and

tactical roadmap, bringing together the people, processes and technology

necessary to transform increasing volumes of information into a strategic,

trusted business asset.

This white paper defines the information agenda; describes key considerations

and best practices in creating and implementing an information agenda; and

sets forth how IBM can help you to deliver trusted information enterprisewide. Download this whitepaper.
