Countdown to the conference

Background and Focus

Data in their simplest form can be a number, symbol, character, word, codes, graphs, etc.

Information is created when data are processed, analysed, organised, or structured to provide context and meaning. Information is essentially processed data. Data is unorganised, while information is structured or organised. Information management is focused on data and IT, collecting, storing and accessing information.

Knowledge is what we know. Knowledge is unique to each individual and is the accumulation of past experience and insight that shapes that we interpret, and assign meaning to, information. For knowledge to result in action, an individual must have the authority and capacity to make and implement a decision.

Information management is focused on data and IT, while knowledge management is focused on people and processes. Information management is collecting, storing, and accessing information, while knowledge management is creating, sharing, using, and managing knowledge. Knowledge management powers your organisation by making information easily accessible and applicable to your business.

    Code of Conduct & Diversity

    UNICOM’s Code of Conduct & Views on Diversity

    We at UNICOM strive to be a leading provider of knowledge to the business community and to engage the global business community as a specialised provider of knowledge. We strive to do this maintaining a culture of co-operation, commitment and trust. We want every UNICOM conference and training day to be a safe and productive environment for everyone – a place to share research and innovation and to build professional networks. To that end, we will enforce a code of conduct throughout all our events. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

    Our approach is that our events are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity or religion. We do not tolerate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, Twitter and other online media.

Please bring your concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff.

    Diversity: In our endeavour to be the provider of knowledge to the business community, we understand that this depends on hearing from and listening to a variety of perspectives that come from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and military service.
