Principles of Information Technology 3 of 5

Shoshana Zuboff of Harvard coined a term in the 1980s by combining "information" with "automate" to create "informate." A process is "informated" when it both accomplishes a business purpose while at the same time gathering data for the organization.

This is the third in a series of five dedicated to the five principles of Business Information Technology Deployment. The second principle is that "the Business Information Technology System should be informated so that processes require less effort than other systems, creating data that is timely and accurate." In this brief video Martin Ramsay discusses the idea of informating business processes, how to make sure that those processes are used, and some of the techniques used to accomplish that purpose. Watch this video to learn more about how you can help your organization informate processes by following the third principle of Business Information Technology Deployment.
