Information is the most valuable resource that an organization possesses. The effective gathering, protection, analysis, processing and dissemination of information is vital to the success of any organization. As globalization and the 24-hour economy develop and increase, organizations must ensure that their information systems are reliable, efficient and able to cope with rapid change. Organizations whose information systems previously dealt purely with data processing have now introduced those supporting strategic management and decision support. Managers at all levels need appropriate and timely information to plan successfully in the short, medium and long term, and that information can have many sources and destinations. As organizations diversify and decentralize, information also needs to be available to many non-managerial staff in a variety of locations. The logical conclusion is that an organization is now completely dependent on the effectiveness of its information systems in order to survive and thrive in the 21st century business environment.
