This concluding chapter summarizes the preceding discussions and argues that information is indeed important, not only in a certain organization, but to the whole of society. It is openly acknowledged that anything can be done with information. Information systems are well suited to some of the characteristics of information, and the vast capacity of these systems is not only directed towards an institutional purpose, but is also confined to certain sorts of information. It is also seen that information is used more and more efficiently for what is already being done, and that information for doing new things is increasingly disregarded. Information is simply something that bolsters everything else, something that serves strategy and policy, not something sufficiently distinct to have its own.
