Developments in Practice XXIV: Information Management: The Nexus of Business and IT
Information Management (IM) is gaining increasing attention in both IT and the business functions these days. While IT is involved with almost every aspect of IM, information is the heart and soul of business, and its management cannot be delegated or abdicated to IT. Thus, IM represents the true nexus of business and IT. Because of this, IM has all the hallmarks of an emerging discipline - the offspring of a committed long-term relationship between business and IT. And, it requires new skills and competencies, new frames of reference, and new processes.
