Information Management

According to (School, 2021) Information Technology responds to emerging fields wherein infrastructure used to collect, manage, preserve, store and deliver information. Made up with the sole purpose of design, develop, manage, and use information with insight and innovation along with the support of decision making and create value for individuals, organizations, communities, and societies.

Cited by (Wikipedia, 2019) Information management is concerned through a cycle of organizational activity: the acquisition of information from one or more sources, the custodianship and the distribution of that information to those who need it, and its ultimate disposition through archiving or deletion.

It holds overall generic concepts of management, which includes the planning, organizing, structuring, processing, controlling, evaluation, and reporting of information activities, that need to be organized in an ideal order to meet the specific needs of those with organizational roles or functions that depend on information. It allows information to be presented to the audience or the correct group of people after individuals are able to put that information to use, it then gains more value since it has been checked and evaluated.
