Information Management
Data – raw unprocessed stream of facts.
Information – data processed and arranged in a meaningful form.
Knowledge – extracted from information and data to which is added

Declarative knowledge (knowledge about)
Procedural knowledge (know-how)
Causal (know why)
Conditional (know when)
Relational (know with).
Information management (IM) is the collection and management of
information from one or more sources and the distribution of that
information to one or more audiences. [4]
Knowledge Management (KM) is the capabilities by which communities
within an organization capture the knowledge that is critical to them,
constantly improve it and make it available in the most effective manner to
those people who need it, so that they can exploit it creatively to add value
as part of their work. [1,p227]
 Information System (IS) –computerized or manual
system for capturing data and transform it into
information –knowledge.
 Information Technology (IT) - software applications,
