Lecture Course Description

Enterprise Information Management (EIM) encompasses the business and technology functions involved in the design and management of corporate information resources. The focus is on the design of useful and useable digital information products, their management across their entire lifecycle from creation to destruction and on the technologies and services to achieve this.

This course provides a comprehensive study of enterprise information management concepts and practices, and their use in achieving business objectives. The course examines the theories behind strategic information management and applies them to digital information initiatives within an organisation.

Topics covered include: information needs analysis and information audits, information and document design, information organisation and technologies for unstructured information management. Specific emphasis is placed on use-centred design, the design of usable, scalable, standards-based information resources.

Students will gain experience in undertaking information audits; information needs analysis and designing an information service.

The lecture course is closely integrated with the EIM seminar and students are required to complete both the lecture and seminar to complete the full module.
