Book Description

Information value and quality can be considered an essential factor to evaluate both conceptual and practical contributions in organizational, technical, and scientific tasks and projects. It is important to effectively observe and implement these concepts in real organizational plans and efforts. Rethinking the Conceptual Base for New Practical Applications in Information Value and Quality discusses the re-evaluation of the conceptual base of information value and quality found in different forms of media; and how these concepts can be analyzed in real applications and business scenarios. This book is a vital reference source for scholars, practitioners, IT specialists, and students interested in information and knowledge management.
