Trends in Information Systems, comes to an end.

9 Mar

And so I come to my last blog šŸ˜¦

We have gained so much valuable information over the last few weeks from what is the role of a system analyst is to flow charts and data flow diagrams all the way to my topic ‘trends in information systems’. My team (111346901, 111350151 and 111350181) and I have all learned many interesting things in terms of trends in information systems and we hope that you have benefited from them too. I have covered a wide range of topics including trends in our community, trends in social media and online shopping, trends seen in companies like Amazon, along with trends in Apple products all trends seen through the use of information systems.

Just one final thing before we go I would like to look at cloud computing a trend being seen more and more in information systems and evolving day by day.

There is no doubt that one of the biggest words talked about at this moment in time is ‘cloud computing’. Cloud computing basically means having large pools of computer systems sharing an IT infrastructure and resources. Cloud computing is mainly about the products and services that are used to support the development and deployment of cloud services. Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on sharing computer resourcesĀ rather than having local servers or personal devicesĀ to handle applications. The term cloud refers to “the internet”, so in other words cloud computing means a type of internet-based computing, where different services, such as servers, applications are delivered to an organisation’s computers and devices through the internet. Amazon. com, eBay along with Google are all examples of companies that provide cloud services and that were born in the dotcom era, Microsoft is also moving more and more towards cloud computing, this is seen where it is making some of its traditionally onsite applications like Office available online to customers.
