Abstract [en]

Today global organizations face the competing demands to attack costs and be flexible in the growing market. The expenses incurring due to information management challenges often constitute a significant portion of the company’s costs.  Understanding information management challenges is not always evident, making it difficult for business and IT to collaborate. This study in the form of a case study carried out at the IT department of a large Swedish multinational company, investigates the role of information visualization in handling the information management challenges.  Firstly, the study focuses on capturing the information management challenges prevalent in the organization. The collected challenges are then analyzed and presented in a theme based categorization.  Then, later part of the study explores how an existing information visualization tool can be used in overcoming some of these challenges. Apart from exploring the capability of information visualization, the study is performed in a methodological way to derive use cases from the challenges. The formulated use cases for the given information visualization tool are being studied and these show how the tool can be evaluated against the information management challenges.  The aim of the study is to imply how information visualization can be used to overcome information management challenges. The results of the study can be useful for other organizations trying to overcome the existing information management challenges.
