February 7, 2017 - Providence, RI: Information Coalition Research, Information Coalition's research division, announced today the release of their newest research publication, Information Strategy 2017: Our 15 Findings on the Current State of Information. The report brings together the latest data on corporate information strategy, the underlying focus on varying information disciplines, and the impact information strategy has on information workers.

The report makes several conclusions:

  • 40% of companies say they do not have a culture of compliance in their organization or have a weak culture of compliance
  • Employees, looking for empowerment and capabilities, continue to turn to unauthorized apps to ‘get work done’
  • Over half of respondents rate their organization’s information-related metrics as severely lacking
  • The majority of respondents believe their companies have the proper cultural values related to information
  • Nearly 2/3 believe their organizations' information architecture isn't effective
  • Most organizations are still struggling with making information findable for employees
  • Only 1 in 4 of our respondents say that their job title matches their duties
  • ...several other findings, available for Information Coalition Professional Members.
