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.

UNICOM’s Code of Conduct & Views on Diversity
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. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers. 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. We welcome diverse speakers for all our events, we do not always fully achieve this goal, but it is an ongoing process.
We are inviting speakers – thought leaders, subject experts and start-up entrepreneurs – to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about their work and vision in these three fields. Please let us know too if you would like to participate in the panel sessions only.
We are also planning short “how to do” sessions or full-day workshops to run as pre or post conference events. Let us know if you have a related topic that you want to run as a workshop or an extended briefing.
