The Certified Information Professional certification will help information professionals demonstrate their ability to solve an organization's existing information-related problems as well as plan for the future. Information professionals contribute to the success of their organizations by helping address the following kinds of information management challenges (both on-premises and in the cloud):
  1. Ensure information is dynamically delivered to staff and customers via websites, mobile, and social media
  2. Improve information sharing and collaboration by leveraging virtual collaboration solutions, social networks, and existing and emerging communications technologies
  3. Improve enterprise search and access to information across organizational and technology boundaries
  4. Continuously analyze information to identify new business opportunities and improvements
  5. Ensure appropriate information security and privacy controls across systems and platforms to protect the organization and its staff
  6. Manage information and records regardless of format or location to meet regulatory compliance and e-discovery readiness requirements
  7. Streamline and automate information-intensive processes across systems and platforms to improve efficiency and reduce costs

The information professional must also be able to bridge the increasing gap between enterprise IT and business executives that currently exists in many organizations.
