Useful v. Useless Information
Issue 6 | July 2008
One of the great problems of living in the so-called information age is the sheer volume of information available and having to sift through it all. Few people suffer from information overload as much as IT managers: looking after servers, workstations, drivers and the like means they have to deal with an enormous amount of new information, much of which becomes outdated and/or irrelevant very quickly. To find the information they and their company need, they often have to waste hours swimming in a sea of out of date, irrelevant data.
