Resource

A source or supply that can be drawn on to support or fulfill a specific need or to handle a situation. Example: Information is a resource that supports and enables delivery, fulfills inquiry requests, and adds value to other products and services. Information is a strategic resource when it is recognized and managed as a valuable asset, independent of organizational boundaries, to address immediate needs, exploit opportunities to leverage it for business advantage, and enhance its value through knowledge creation and preservation.n/ahttp://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/cioscripts/gloss/gloss-alpha_e.asp?SubjectID=128&who=/im-gi/
