CHAPTER 1

The difference between Information technology (IT) and Information System (IS)data
Information Systems

Information systems is an umbrella term for the systems, people and processes designed to create, store, manipulate, distribute and disseminate information.

Example

transaction processing systems, customer relationship systems, business intelligence systems and knowledge management systems.

Information Technology

Information technology falls under the IS umbrella but deals with the technology involved in the systems themselves. Information technology can be defined as the study, design, implementation, support or management of computer-based information systems.

IT typically includes hardware, software, databases and networks. Information technology often governs the acquisition, processing, storage and dissemination of digitized information, or data, generated through the disciplines of computing and telecommunications. Information technology focuses on managing technology and improving its utilization to advance the overall business goals.

Example

personal computers and their accessories, computer networks, landline and mobile phones, flash drives and most types of software.
