Personal Information Management (PIM) is about finding, keeping, organizing, and maintaining information. It is also about managing privacy and the flow of information. PIM is a software application that uses tools to manage contacts, calendars, tasks, appointments and other personal data. In a larger sense, PIM is about the use of information to keep ourselves “found” — on track to fulfill our life’s goals and our life’s roles and responsibilities. Practically, It is concerned with how people organize and maintain personal information collections, and methods that can help people in doing so.
