The emergence of big data, social media, cloud and mobile-based services presents massive challenges and opportunities for government, organisations and society. The effective management of these information and knowledge assets enables people to succeed.
The Centre for Information Management's (CIM) main objective is to undertake internationally recognised research for the benefit of the individual, organisations, government and society.
In particular, CIM aims to:
- Evidence the significance and value of information
- Challenge thinking and practice around information management
- Improve performance through analysis, interpretation and judgment of information
To achieve these goals, CIM draws upon an outstanding network of researchers who have been successful in running major research projects funded by a variety of national and international agencies, including the AHRB, EPSRC ESRC, JISC, the European Union and the NHS. CIM is also working with many industrial partners including IBM, Jaguar Land Rover, Leicester County Council, Leicestershire Police, Microsoft, Rolls Royce and SAP.
