Information vs. Intelligence

What is the difference between Information and Intelligence?
It is very important to know the difference between Information and Intelligence
Let us see What Mr.Larry Kahaner said about that in his book.

“I’ve got too much to read”
Most company managers
They have too much information no intelligence
Intelligence , not information is what managers need to make a decision, another term of intelligence is knowledge

Information ; is a numbers, statistics or a bits of data, it always appears to be telling you some thing but reality it’s not. So you cannot make good decision based on information

Intelligence; is a collection of information pieces that have been filtered and analyzed, it has been turned into something that can be acted upon.
