9780123756954: Making Enterprise Information Management (EIM) Work for Business,

Organizations of all types struggle with information. Millions of dollars are spent on ERP applications to integrate data and yet this data still isn't accessible or relevant. Emails contain hidden liabilities. Safety manuals endanger workers. Worse, there is data and information being created and handled in every nook and cranny of large organizations, well out of view of formal oversight, but within view of customers and regulators. Thus far, any efforts to wrestle the "data-beast" to the ground have failed, and there exists a profound need for all levels of business management, not just IT, to understand the risks, challenges, and subsequent remediation value of treating information as a real asset.


Making Enterprise Information Management (EIM) Work for Business educates executives and middle management in a way that speaks to business issues and solves business problems. The book is divided into two parts, the first of which defines EIM, addresses why it is required, and identifies the business issues surrounding it. The second part acts as a field guide, or "how-to" that explains how EIM can be worked into any organization via various methodologies, techniques, templates, and business case studies.




  • Organizes information modularly, so you can delve directly into the topics that you need to understand.

  • Based in reality with practical case studies and a focus on getting the job done, even when confronted with tight budgets, resistant stakeholders, and security and compliance issues.

  • Includes applicatory templates, examples, and advice for executing every step of an EIM program.

Review:

"No one that I know of has attempted to deliver a true business perspective of EIM. And few people are qualified to do so. John is one of them.-Wayne Eckerson, Director, TDWI Research "The idea of information as an asset and the ability to manage it as such is extremely important right now. Not a lot of people know how to do it, but John Ladley is one who does. .-Danette McGilvray, author of Executing Data Quality Projects "Ladley, the author of Making EIM Work for Business -- A Guide to Managing Information as an Asset (2010, Morgan Kaufmann), has spoken and written widely on the topics of data governance and enterprise information management. He has 30 years of experience helping both IT and business leaders to better plan and manage information and projects. Ladley recently spoke at a TDWI Webinar on Data Governance for Business Leaders."--Interviewed on TDWI.com "This comprehensive guide to Enterprise Information Management (EIM) provides executives and information managers with both a firm theoretical rationale for developing holistic information systems that value knowledge as a business asset, as well as practical information on the development of robust, scalable systems for providing dynamic and deep business intelligence. The volume provides case studies and practical tutorials for developing both the IT infrastructure required but also for creating a culture that values, and can effectively use, the products delivered. Ladley is an experienced information management expert and EIM consultant."--SciTech Book News
