Case Study
The article presents a case study regarding the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA), a non-departmental public body, sponsored by Great Britain Department for Education and Skills (DfES), which is helping Great Britain to become the most dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world. The QCA during the review of its information management infrastructure discovered that there was an excessive amount of paper records with nearly 10,000 boxes taking up a significant amount of storage space. The existing information management system was large with no information storage infrastructure, which lead to records being lost or misplaced completely.
