Information Systems Management

Information systems are information technologies, which are typically designed to enable humans to perform tasks for which the human brain is not well suited, such as: handling large amounts of information, performing complex calculations, and controlling many simultaneous processes. A typical information system is complementary hardware and software that people and organizations use to collect, filter, process, create and distribute data. Information Systems Management encompasses a variety of disciplines such as: information security, database management and decision support systems. There are various types of information management systems, for example: transaction processing systems, decision support systems, knowledge management systems, learning management systems, database management systems, and office information systems.
