Managing information effectively is a series of four reports focused on strategies for managing information flow and security across and within sectors. Each report focuses on one of four sectors: healthcare, government and public sector; retail banking and discrete manufacturing.
The reports are based on the findings of research that HP conducted in cooperation with the Economist Intelligence Unit in June 2010, which included a survey of 332 executives in healthcare (23% of respondents), retail banking (24%), discrete manufacturing (27%), and government/public sector (26%). The respondents are heads of their departments or higher; 29% are C-level or board-level executives. Geographically, 34% hail from North America, 31% from Western Europe, and 28% from Asia Pacific. All respondents from the retail banking sector work at firms with a minimum of US$25bn in assets; respondents from the healthcare and discrete manufacturing sectors work for organizations with annual revenues of US$500m or more; and public sector officials are from government entities with budgets of at least US$500m per year.
This HP white paper is designed to share insight and stimulate dialog about the management of information flow and security within the discrete manufacturing sector.
