Organisations are not getting the full value from information and data collected, according to a survey.
Research from information management consultant Iron Mountain suggests that 89 per cent of UK business leaders do not understand what their information managers do.
More than half of information managers who responded to the survey admitted that they do not know what senior business leaders require from the information gathered.
Just 10 per cent of business leaders surveyed said they had complete confidence in their organisation's ability to get the most from its information.
Sue Trombley, director of professional services at Iron Mountain, said: "In today's knowledge-driven world our study has revealed an unexpected obstacle on the road towards return on information.
"This must be addressed as a matter of urgency if organisations are to have any chance of extracting the full value from their data."
Iron Mountain surveyed 900 business leaders and information managers in the UK. The full research can be found here.
