INFS2010: Managing Information in Organisations

Organisations need to systematically manage their information and knowledge resources to compete effectively in today's digital economy. In this unit, students develop an understanding of the main issues businesses face when they develop and implement information management initiatives. Students are introduced to the tools and systems that enable organisations to acquire, store, distribute, analyse, and leverage information and knowledge resources. By focusing on the theoretical and practical principles that link people, information, and organisations, this unit builds understanding of the processes of generating, communicating, and using information in organisations, and the way these can be integrated with business strategy and information technology.
