Posted by galaxyconsult in Information Overload.

“Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across electrified borders”. — Ronald Reagan

In our society recorded information and knowledge are growing in volume and complexity. Companies, universities, laboratories, government, schools, etc. are acquiring and using information at greater rates than at any time in the past. Information appears in many diverse forms. Information can save time, money, and sometimes lives. Therefore more and more people of all ages and occupations are becoming increasingly dependent upon efficient access to information.

In today’s volatile marketplace, businesses are in a never ending search for information. Businesses and individuals alike are being assaulted by a barrage of information that exceeds their ability and/or time to analyze, synthesize, and disseminate it. Everybody has the information, most are being asphyxiated by it.

Tomorrow I will talk about the solution to this problem.
