Optimize your information supply chain
Nearly 15 petabytes – one million gigabytes – of data are created every day. We have the expertise and technology to harness that information to improve our businesses – as well as our lives and our planet. But making it work requires information governance to ensure that it’s fresh, accurate and authentic. Such trusted information can help meet regulatory compliance demands, sustain profitable growth, reduce risk and predict future outcomes with greater confidence.
IBM is leading the way by approaching information governance from a supply chain perspective – think of information as goods and services in a physical supply chain. Like its physical counterpart, the information supply chain can experience breakdowns. Information can be erroneously duplicated, corrupted, distributed or compromised. It can be delivered too late or not at all. These problems can disrupt daily operations often resulting in bad to poor decisions, higher costs and missed opportunities.
IBM can help you optimize your information supply chain.
Document the information supply chain
The first step is documenting your information supply chain and understanding how it supports key business initiatives.
Instrument the information supply chain
Validate the flow of trusted information by establishing requirements for information quality, protection and lifecycle management, and monitor your information against these parameters.
Optimize the flow of trusted information
Enable users to feed information back into the supply chain and proactively foster continuous improvement.
Orchestrate trusted information
Give users the flexibility to interact with information as they need and the confidence that it is current and consistent.
