Information Management (IM) vs Information Technology (IT) Infographic

Enterprise Information management (IM) and information technology (IT) are not the same, however they are inter-connected, supporting information exchange across and beyond organisations, with each discipline acting as an enabler for the other.

As another information obsessed Codice associate with a passion for infographics and information visualisation, I’ve endeavoured to address ongoing confusion around the distinction between information management (IM) and information technology (IT) by creating the below IM vs IT  infographic. The infographic has been developed to help illustrate the differences and commonalities between the framework, structure, and disciplines in enterprise. The IM component in part draws upon an early framework part-originated by the incomparable Kaushal Mehrotra, while any faults with the IT component are all mine. While of course this view won’t match the views of all, it may prove a useful starting point for debate. We’d love to hear your views, with all constructive feedback welcomed of course!

On information visualisation, I will be running a workshop covering data analysis and information visualisation using web-standard open-source tools at the Institute for Information Management Australia’s 2016 National Conference taking place 3 to 4 May 2016 as part of Australia’s Information Awareness Month (yes it’s a thing). It would be wonderful to see you there.
