Trends in Information Systems

5 Feb

Hey Guys, this is a short piece on trends in the information system mainly relating to the internet and it’s influence.

The Internet is developing the nature and scope of information systems. Most information systems methods and techniques were created before the advent of the Internet. In modern times, many big businesses are using computerised information systems in order to retrieve important decision making. However, in recent times the main issue is how big businesses and organisations can use the current or developed information systems to their own advantage and to make the most out of it. Information systems are obviously of huge importance to organisations and business’ today.

Even before the internet, information systems played a huge role in the business. It helped managers and other personnel in the business place to exercise control. However due to recent changes and trends in information systems, it now focuses on business processes rather than an individual factor. Since the widespread marketable availability of computing technologies, information systems have been the overriding application area of computing.

For many divisions of society, the Internet has already had a significant influence on how people work, communicate, or even socialize. Many of the changes can be credited to information systems that now operate widely over the Internet.

Therefore in my opinion, I would believe that in the next 5-10 years the trends in information systems will be fluctuating at a faster rate due to the huge and prominent influence of information technologies and also the internet.
