1)ans:- Information is considered to be processed data that influences choices, that is data have somehow been formatted, filtered

and summarized; and knowledge is, considered to be an understanding derived from information distinctions among data, information and knowledge may be derived from scientific terminology. The researcher collects data to test hypotheses: thus data refer to unprocessed and unanalysed numbers.

It is frequently desirable to investigate different projections; In particular , planned projections may be compared with the projections derived from actual results. 5) An EIS should allow easy tailoring to the preference of the particular user or group of users. 6) EIS should offer the capability to drill drown into the data: It should be possible to see increasingly detailed data behind the summaries.

Because paper files require large amount s of space managers may store the data on a different floor or even in a different bulding. The labour costs of retrieving even small amounts of information electronically unless the organization can create small and compact storage for its paper records. Electronic systems provide rapid and inexpensive access to information stored electronically in an organized fashion. The costs incurred are only those of using the computer equipment for a fraction of a second, particulary when retrival is part of ongoing processing . If can individual requests the retrival, it may require additional processing to translate the retrieval from a from understood by the person to a form understood by the computer. Then the information is stored in a different in place from where it is requested, the request must be transmitted electronically to where the data are stored, and the retrived data must be transmitted back. 4)ans:-CHALLENGES OF INFORMATION MANAGMENT First, they must deal with large quantities of information that may creat overload.
