How organisations use information?
Personal (Human Resources)
Reliable information: That the user can find reliable and trustworthy in the way that they believe the information or data they have gotten from other sources are true or false information, you cannot really be certain that everything you research is true because there can be lots of people online posting false information on purpose so some good ways to tell whether the data is reliable can be cross checking it with other sources to determine if one of them is different which means one of them is giving false information, you can also tell if you already know some of the information depending on what you’re researching.
You could research the data yourself by using third party sources such as giving out questionnaires, surveys to see what people would answer for it depending on the data you are looking for.
Accessible information: Collected data must be accessible. This means that it can be used by others easily and quickly. An example of this is if you wanted to do calculations using the data you have collected. If the data was collected in a printed report you wouldn’t be able to use the data for calculations without having to type it up again on a computer. This can be time consuming and expensive if there is a lot of data to be typed up. A good way to store collected information would be to store it in a database.
If you are the company trying to sell the data then it is also very important to keep it in an accessible format as other companies are unlikely to buy the information if it is not already in an easily accessible format.
