Enterprise Information Management (EIM)

Definition - What does Enterprise Information Management (EIM) mean?

Enterprise information management (EIM) is a term that is used somewhat broadly in IT to refer to methods and strategies that use existing data well. An EIM project or resource takes information about the business and uses it effectively toward any given objective.

Techopedia explains Enterprise Information Management (EIM)

In enterprise information management, professionals see data as an important business asset. This data can consist of very structured data or more loosely aggregated information. Some further define enterprise information management as combining or bringing together business intelligence and other aspects of data management, where a broad spectrum process optimizes how a business acts on what it "knows" based on the data at its disposal. In general, any process that distills this knowledge from data could be seen as effective enterprise information management.

Enterprise information management planners may use various metrics or criteria in order to assess a project's value or success. These might include accuracy and timeliness, as well as the "final value" or definition that a set of data brings to the table. Security and access are also relevant issues for many enterprise information management projects.
