One third of Fortune 100 organizations to experience information crisis by 2017: Gartner

Washington, March 4: One of three Fortune 100 firms will reportedly face an information crisis by 2017, following their lack of ability to effectively value, govern and trust their enterprise information, Gartner said.

Andrew White, research VP at Gartner said that there is an overall lack of maturity when it comes to governing information as an enterprise asset.

White said that it was likely that a number of organizations, which are unable to organize themselves effectively for 2020, unwilling to focus on capabilities rather than tools, and not ready to revise their information strategy, will suffer the consequences.

According to Gartner, IT leaders must design EIM (enterprise information management) initiatives so that sharing and reusing information creates business value, and the value created must contribute to enterprise goals, Enterprise Innovation reported.

With over three-quarters of individual information management initiatives kept in isolation from each other within the same organization, analysts at Gartner believe that this has led to EIM not being realized, sustained or fully exploited. (ANI)
