Information Management Lifecycle

The Information Management Lifecycle

Information Management

Information encompasses both electronic and physical information, and you need to manage it throughout the information lifecycle regardless of source or format (data, paper documents, electronic documents, audio, video, etc.). It is defined as: The field of management responsible for establishing and implementing policies, systems, and procedures to capture, create, access, distribute, use, store, secure, retrieve, and ensure disposition of an organization’s records and information.

Information Management includes:

The management of Records through Creation, Receipt, Maintenance, Storage, Archiving and Disposal, and our services cover the entire lifecycle, including Auditing and Training.  Furthermore, all aspects of Business Process Management (BPM) are included, and Metatrans offers process improvement, automation, and standardisation services.
Data Management Strategies, Frameworks and Governance services offered for both structured and unstructured data throughout the organisation.
