||Information engineering deals with the acquisition, preparation, storage, organization and distribution of information in knowledge-intensive environments, like e.g. digital libraries or knowledge management systems. Information underlies in a life cycle of creation, storage, distribution and application, which may lead to the creation of new information. This life cycle may be strongly linked to certain business processes. Informaion is used for performing knowledge-intensive tasks. Creation and application of knowledge may also be a collaborative task.
