bullet Information Management (IM) - M.Sc.

Introduction:
Information management (IM) concerns the acquisition of information from one or more sources and the distribution of that information to those who need it. Management embraces concepts such as planning, organizing, structuring, processing, controlling, evaluation and reporting of information activities. By the expansion of information technology, information management found new dimensions and scopes. In the 1970s, the management of information largely concerned matters close to data management: punched cards, magnetic tapes and other record-keeping media. But in the following years, information management found new horizons and started repairing and storing information. With the electronic storage of data, the management task became even more difficult. In the late 1990, when the data and information were systematically proliferated by electronic devices, the network managers transformed into information managers. They faced ever increasing hardware and software challenges. With the latest technology, the information management turned into a powerful and expensive source for many organizations. Knowledge and Information Science has been defined as the organizational ability to develop, preserve, retrieve, and make available the information at the right place in the right organization and for the right audience with the least costs in the best media to be used for decision making purposes. Best (1988) maintains that Knowledge and Information Science is a kind of economic, efficient synchrony for the control, storage, retrieval and dissemination from insource and outsources for the sake of promoting organizational performance. This definition has a limited scope, so the manager does not care about information characteristics (content, ownership, storage method, or ultimate user). In short, Knowledge and Information Science is concerned with the management of information in an organization which utilizes modern technology. The concept of information systems and the rapid growth of computer technology encourages us to make use of computers to resolve more complex problems.
Information systems have always been the biggest challenge for dynamic and growing organizations. The need for obtaining fast, reliable and cost-effective information necessitate the integration of databases in organizations. The information systems and the managerial information especially those which are effective in organizational decision-making processes are considered as valuable organizational sources. In other words, an information system is a system which receives data as raw materials and through processes transforms them into product. IM includes the elements related to the organization or environment: recognition, insertion of initial data, either obtained or produced by an organization. Recording: physical attainment of the data, .Transfer: based on specific needs of the organization, Storage: predicting possible uses in future. Retrieval: searching the registered data. Offering: report, connection ... In short, IM requires organizing, retrieving, securing and preserving the information. Information management closely collaborates with data management.
In the 84th session of Higher Education Planning Council held on Sep. 9th, 2012, the Science Planning Committee of the Ministry ratified the field of IM and replaced it for Informatics.
