Information integrity is the trustworthiness and dependability of information. More specifically, it is the accuracy, consistency and reliability of the information content, processes and systems. The Scholarly Kitchen brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “There is No Truth, There is Only Workflow.”
With the current state of our news, social media and information flow, the integrity and trustworthiness of the information we receive is constantly being questioned and critiqued – and rightly so. When it comes to organizational information, quality principles continue to evolve over time. With the advent of the Information Age, organizations in the marketplace are now challenged with new dimensions for viable business models.
Fundamentally, the information assets for organizations are what drive the potential for that organization to succeed. How we produce the highest quality information and how we assess information quality comes down to the workflow – the process by which we move information from generation to dissemination.
