The term Information Systems [IS] describes the combination of information and communication technologies with human activities to support the decision making, operations, and general management of industries, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations. Information systems exist within an organization for the purpose of improving the effectiveness and efficiency of that organization. Access to current, complete and accurate information is vital for success in today’s competitive, and global, business environment. Therefore, a critical mission for Information Systems is designing and operating solutions thatenable humans to perform tasks for which their brains are not well suited, such as: handling large amounts of information, performing complex calculations, and controlling many simultaneous processes.Depending on the required task, these solutions can take many forms, such as enterprise informationBCIS 2610, Fall 2016 Page 2 of 14systems, transaction processing systems, database management systems, networking systems, project management systems and e-business systems.. BCIS 2610 COURSE WEB SITE (http://www.coba.unt.edu/itds/courses/bcis2610/ ) DOWNLOAD FROM HERE ALL DATA FILES NECESSARY TO COMPLETE YOUR HOMEWORK.
