A flood of new business and consumer applications combined with the huge surge in Internet use in recent years can only mean one thing: an exponential growth in global data volumes. Studies predict that the data saved worldwide totaled around 1,600 exabytes (1,600 trillion bytes) in 2011. And this figure is set to grow fourfold every three years or so. Businesses are all too aware of this trend – and decision makers know that rapidly finding the information they need gives their company a clear competitive advantage.
T-Systems Enterprise Information Management (EIM) allows you to model business information architecture, and analyze, merge and manage data from a range of sources. The market researchers at Gartner define EIM as an integrative discipline that helps companies to structure, describe, organize, and manage information, regardless of organizational and technological boundaries. The goal is greater transparency and rapid, targeted access to data – being able to find data rapidly and turn it into valuable information for decision-making gives companies an edge.
Make your data work for you – over the entire life cycle
The T-Systems EIM offering combines applications such as business intelligence (BI), customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise content management (ECM) in an integrated approach. So all business data can be analyzed and processed – regardless of location, user, author, data source, format, application, and time. EIM bridges the gap between structured and unstructured data, creating the basis for all kinds of sophisticated information capture, from data creation to deletion. Data all along the value chain is enriched throughout its life cycle – plus it is subject to ongoing monitoring.
