We work with data everyday, but what about information?
All data is information, but not all information is data. It’s still important that we understand and manage other kinds of information that we produce as part of our jobs, especially those of us in the public service. May is Information Awareness Month - a timely reminder to manage our information assets appropriately while sharing with the community as openly as possible.
