Information Governance: Orchestrate people, processes and technology for success
sponsored by IBM

In a manufacturing supply chain, materials from many different places come together to create a final product. Organizations focus closely on monitoring and improving their supply chains, making them more efficient, reducing costs and improving the quality of the final product. Not every business has a material supply chain, but all organizations have an information supply chain. It runs through applications, databases and servers, and it ends in an array of ever-changing products that are critical to the health of the organization: financial reports, online catalogs, sales analysis, online bank accounts and more. Unlike a material supply chain, where each element can only be used for one result, data in an information supply chain can be used over and over again in multiple supply chains—adding another layer of complexity. But as important as an organization’s information supply chain is, it is rarely viewed as a unified, interrelated set of systems. More often, organizations monitor information in isolation, focusing on individual applications or databases instead of examining them in a broader context.
