Information management is the process of acquiring, storing, organizing, and using information in an efficient and effective manner. It involves the use of technologies, processes, and policies to manage the creation, distribution, and use of information within an organization. The goal of information management is to ensure that the right information is available to the right people at the right time, so that it can be used to support decision-making, problem-solving, and other activities. Information management can encompass a wide range of activities, including data management, document management, records management, and knowledge management. It is often closely linked to the management of information technology (IT) systems within an organization.
