Why do organization have information deficiency problem? Suggest ways organizations can overcome information deficiency problems.ANSWERSData, Information, and Knowledge are complimentary to one another as they embody a vision of the human mind. These three mimics the processing of data to information and then the information simulates knowledge. In an Information Technology environment, k knowledge is identified as an entity or an object which is intertwined with data therefore, they are not the same. On the other hand, there is a general assumption that data changes to information when being processed and then this information transforms to knowledge, based on this definition all three entity are asymmetrically aligned to further produce one another. According to Liew (2017), data, information and knowledge are fundamental in organizational learning and knowledge management. Data has basic and unfiltered information which are factual details used in discussions, calculations and for reasoning while information is gathering of data with context that has been stored, analyzed and communicated. Information is a processed data that is made significant for users through action media or graphic displays. Knowledge is an actionable information which is imbibed with values, insights and organized experiences.Finally, data can be in symbols, images or signal reviews such as numbers, images, sound, taste or diagrams and its main objective is to record activities or situations to be either used for illustration or historical purposes. Information is the input that is set for actions that aid in decision making and solving problems. While knowledge processes data and information to better our lives for example from a capitalist view, it creates values. Consequently, all three are interchangeable and can generate one another. Most organizations have information deficiency problem because even though they say they have enough knowledge sharing platform and resources, sharing of knowledge is still challenging and difficult. Take for example, some individuals are not able to comprehend the evolution and adaption of growing technology in information and management which is a setback for most organizations as the people cannot understand the information or even share it.
