The Search for Meaning: Cutting Through the Noise

We all share the common experience of attending meetings and hearing IG terms interchanged freely – such as data and information, data and metadata, structured and unstructured information/data, records and archival. We’ve all wasted time arguing about the definition of the terms to use, but coming back to the next meeting only to have the same discussion. Frustrating, isn’t it? At InfoGovANZ we believe it’s time to resolve the foundational definition needed for our emerging industry to adopt them going forward with understanding and clarity for everyone across the business. While the terms have been defined at a National, Standards or ISO level, we need to create a common, pragmatic and easily understood language to use within our organisations.

Network with other IG professionals to help cut through the noise, and join us in our Search for Meaning.

  • Share experiences about responses to language
  • Have robust discussion around common terminology and decide what stays and what goes
  • Brainstorm ideas to disseminate this information throughout our organisations
