What is Information Management?

Information management is the collection and management of organizational data from one or more sources and the distribution of that information to one or more audiences to improve decision making. Information management refers to all processes used to capture, protect, manage, and distribute the information throughout its lifecycle.

Why information management matters

Today, information management matters more than ever. The era of the digital economy is driving rapid transformation and acceleration of enterprise IT. The shift to cloud, mobile, virtualization, and application modernization is fueling exponential data growth within the data center and on the edge. Securely capturing, protecting, and managing increasing volumes and varieties of information and deriving insight from it to accelerate business outcomes has become critical for any organization – regardless of its size and industry.

However, taking a static, reactive approach to information management can prove costly – beyond your anticipation. Modern information management solutions enable you to protect mission critical applications, standardize backup across the data center and remote sites, retire legacy applications while preserving access to valuable data, and improve mobile workforce productivity with policy-based file sync and share. Leveraging real-time intelligence and optimization, modern information management solutions can help you address the needs of today's diverse and dynamic workloads, while planning for tomorrow.
