ITWeb: IBM calls for info transformation

ITWeb has detailed coverage of yesterday's Information on Demand Comes to You event in South Africa.  Arvind Krishna, General Manager of Information Management Software, was the keynote speaker, and focused on the need for organizations to think about how they can better optimize their business by proceeding through an information-led transformation.
