The study addresses the challenges and transformations generated by access to the data and information management activity, considering the time to retrieve the correct information for decision-making. The greater pain organization, the more complex nature of the problems arising from the volume of data and information. In this scenario, the flow of information plays an important role in generating competitive advantages on products and services and the Engineering Information ( EI ) , comes with an interlocking set of formal techniques for creating , planning, analysis, design and construction of systems Information ( SI ) , reflecting the organizational efficiency and Information Management ( IM ) . This work aims to conceptually relate the Information Management, Information System with Information Engineering, through the investigation of its structural elements. The triangulation of the concepts offers an understanding of how Information Engineering participates in the process of creation of information as a strategic element for decision-making. Methodologically, the study is classified as exploratory, qualitative non-probabilistic. We also use the literature and documents to build a theoretical map with elements related to information management, information systems, and information engineering research. As a result of the study, EI is conceptually presented as an integrated set of formal techniques by which business models, data models, and process models are constructed from a knowledge base far-reaching, to create and maintain information systems focusing on strategy and competitive advantage, generated by suitable and qualified manipulation of the processes described. Therefore, one starts with the assumption of the Information Engineering, occurring systemic observation of the life cycle of information effectively in the organizational environment. Begins by generating (conception, creation), processing, custody, disposal, and reuse (tomb) closes the cycle of Information Engineering.
