Track 5: Information and Knowledge Management

Information Management as a sub-discipline within Information Systems plays an important role, both as a study program and as a cross-divisional function within companies. Here, it is on the one hand responsible for all aspects of an efficient information logistics and on the other hand for the management of the IT infrastructure, the creation and exhausting of innovation potential and, last, but certainly not least, the value creation through IT (IT value). The strategic tasks of information management are often subsumed under the term ’IT Governance‘. These tasks cover a wide range from the strategic alignment of business and IT, decisions concerning the internal and external role of IT regarding company goals as well as its management with respect to aspects of risk, competition, and efficiency.

Information and the IT infrastructure have a close and almost natural connection to data and knowledge, which again is connected to information and its application through the process of its creation. The rapid technical and economic development are two of the main challenges research in information management has to cope with, but almost to the same degree it has to find solutions for data and knowledge related problems in daily business. Here, challenges are, for example, to design, implement and operate inter-organizational solutions for decision support. Moreover, the creation and maintenance of a knowledge-oriented infrastructure is an important task to support knowledge-intensive business processes and to utilize the potential of new technology for knowledge workers.

The close relationship between data, information, and knowledge can be noticed in many different ways in research and practice alike. As a consequence, this track “Information and Knowledge Management” is dedicated to address challenges arising in this context. This is done by structuring the field of topics into three main areas, namely “IT Management and IT Governance”, “Decision Support and Business Intelligence”, and “Knowledge Management”.
