An information strategy defines how a company will use the data it collects to achieve a competitive advantage. It is a comprehensive, constantly evolving plan that encompasses five distinct actions: strategize, align, govern, execute, and optimize. When working in harmony, these actions, improve processes, increase productivity, and enhance decision-making. Information strategy permeates every level of the business, from the CEO’s office down to frontline workers and out to customers and partners.


In this white paper we explore how these five vital actions, as well as the technologies that enable and support them, can help organizations develop an effective and broad-reaching information strategy that drives positive change.
