Abstract:

The creation of the Information Mission Area IMA recognized the value of information as an Army corporate resource. It simultaneously united information disciplines which the Army previously managed separately under diverging rules. The disciplines united in the IMA are telecommunications, automation, visual information, records management, and publications and printing. These disciplines are active throughout the three Army environments, the theatertactical, the sustaining base, and the strategic. Information management is a command responsibility executed under the direction of the organizations information manager. Information has a useful life and is managed using life cycle concepts. Information systems are tools that make valuable information available to increase the effectiveness and motivation of the work force. The Army Information Resources Management Program AIRMP focuses on the management of information as a valuable corporate resource. It includes the concepts of an organizational data model, the Army information architecture, the IMA cycle outlining the interaction of planning and implementation activities, and the roles, responsibilities, and relationship of the major players in information management.
