Master Instrument

A human response to Information Management that uses computer technology.


The Master Instrument provides any business with a framework for Information Management that utilises a new generation of tools and capabilities, now and into the unforeseen future.

A business cannot run its daily operations, make a decision, nor respond to a problem, without ready access to all the information that it requires. Most of this information, today, is stored digitally.

Information that has no context is meaningless. Information that cannot be found in a timely manner is of no use.

Change is now a constant in the business environment. This is not going to change.

A paradigm shift in thinking is needed.

Information management systems have become increasingly complex, convoluted, regulation heavy, abuse prone, and muddied by conflicting agendas. Unrealistic expectations and assumptions underpin these systems.

Workarounds to deal with these problems are so commonplace that they are barely noticed.

The inability to find relevant information in a timely manner results in an enormous cost to a business. Time and money are wasted. Poor decisions are made and necessary business outcomes are compromised. There is the added impact on staff of continual daily frustration as they try to complete work. And there is an additional risk of security exposure for the business.

A new set of tools is necessary.

The current digital information management tools are inadequate for the times in which we live, a time when change is no longer an occasional event.

Debraneys has had substantial experience working on the global problems of information management, based on many years of work with clients. In response to this, Debraneys has delivered working solutions to overcome the constraints of the prevailing information management systems that were being used. The reality is that the problems are long standing, multi-faceted and continue to grow exponentially.


The Master Instrument is based on clear, realistic expectations. It provides the new tools necessary to enable a business to continually adapt to change. The tools enable businesses to see, and realistically tackle, the multi-faceted problems.

There are two fundamental attributes needed in a framework that supports healthy information management:

1. The attribute of clarity of the information. This means that the information you need, when you find it, is the correct information for your purposes, and that it is clear that this is the case.

2. The attribute of responsiveness of the system managing the information. This means that the way in which the information is stored ensures ready access to the information that you need. This relies on the responsiveness of the information management structure.

These two attributes of clarity and responsiveness ensure that you can find precisely what you need when you need it. These two essential ingredients of successful information management rely on many other factors being thoroughly addressed. This is currently not a simple matter.

The ability to digitize any kind of information is now a reality. This is the starting point, and has become one of the most straightforward parts, of the overall process of information management. The challenge is to ensure that the other parts of the entire process of information management are also straightforward. The Master Instrument takes on this challenge.

The tools of the Master Instrument build a framework that ensures that the clarity of the information, and the responsiveness in finding the information, are not compromised. The tools set a framework for now, and for the future.
