What Is Information Management ?

The emergence of computers has made information an important resource for corporate management and operations, and the introduction of information systems has become a weapon for organizations to survive in the market.

However, there is little overlap between general organization management and the training and cognition of information technology personnel.

Therefore, in the early days of the information age, most information systems only replaced certain established manual procedures with programs, and ignored the interactive relationship between information and organizations as well as people. Hence, a new discipline – “Information Management” was born.
