Effective Information Management in the AI Era: Why Strategic Information Management is the Key

Let’s face it, AI is revolutionising industries. From automating tasks to generating insights, AI promises significant efficiency gains and competitive advantages. However, the success of AI hinges on two crucial factors: high-quality data and effective information management strategies.

The usefulness of AI is dependent on the quality of the data input. Imagine feeding an AI system a disorganised mess of information. The results would be unreliable, potentially leading to flawed decisions. Libraries & archives have always been trusted sources of information, helping corporations eliminate issues with data accuracy, data integrity, and data security

Information Management Strategies

This is where information management strategies come in. An information management (IM) strategy refers to a comprehensive approach to managing all aspects of information within an organisation. These information management best practices involve collecting, organising, storing, preserving, retaining, and disposing of information while maintaining control over its structure, processing, and delivery, both in electronic and physical formats, throughout its lifecycle. 

Information Storage Architecture

Further, many companies’ storage architecture may not be ideal. Many organisations store critical information in various repositories, which can lead to a separate and fragmented data ecosystem that complicates accessibility. This disjointed data landscape is likely the cause of many data challenges such as difficulty and complexity in searching, confusing search results, and excessive duplicates.
