Abstract:

Information Resource Management IRM is bringing changes -- perhaps even forcing changes -- within large organizations, whether business, industry, or government. The phrase and the concept reflect the growing awareness that information is a resource of an organization -- just as are its personnel, finances, inventory, and physical plant. It is in fact, a resource which is essential to the decision-making process. An important component of this new era of information management is the evolving technology of computer software and hardware dedicated to database management. Sophisticated software packages Data Base Management Systems have been available for several years. Their best use requires a high level of analytical expertise of a kind which is not often found within the typical data processing department. This report serves as an introduction to IRM for managers. It presents the results of a long research study of the published literature which describes the experiences and recommendations of managers, database systems analysts, consultants, ad academicians.
