Information Systems - Conclusion - Module 3: Management Uses of Information - Introduction to Information Systems
In the business world, information technology and Information Systems play a pivotal role in how effectively and efficiently companies perform.
It is not sufficient to have a flashy Web site or the cheapest product line. Customers expect quality service, accurate and timely delivery of orders, and a well-run organization behind the flashy Web site.
Business professionals can no longer hide in a functional silo within a company. Companies do not separate product development and manufacturing into well-defined pieces; the accountants need to talk to the product development team, who need to connect with marketing people, who need to understand production cycles.
All business professionals must share common information, information that is collected centrally and made available via integrated Information Systems to all company users
The more you know about working with interchangeable pieces, the better prepared you will be to succeed as a business professional.
