It is pretty simple. Companies think information management is about automating knowledge worker processes, predictive analytics or big data, but they are wrong. CMS Wire brought this news to us in their article, “Stop Complicating Information Management.”

It comes down to helping users find their data and removing anything that makes that process difficult. Even though this is easier said than done, every organization has opportunities that are mostly untouched.
