Why Trends seem to occur in information systems

15 Nov

Information systems is defined as “A combination of hardware , software , infrastructure and trained personnel organised to facilitate planning , control coordination and decision making in an organisation” (www.bussinessdictionary.com)

Information systems development is arguably at the core of the information systems discipline, this is has been a clear point since the start of Technology itself, information systems have to deal and adapt to rapidly changing social and business environments and all try and create new base technologies and techinical infrastures.

Information systems development over the years has seen deep changes this is due to the nature of the constraints and the requirements that are forever been placed on the back of the success of early systems , also user needs have changed drastically over the years and will always continue to change ,so information systems have to keep continuing to update and change to keep upto date with these .

The relationships between information systems and innovation creating value is a major factor firms have to take into consideration in the management of there information systems,the web has propelled the use of data forward but this has been changing for years and is likely to keep changing and developing for many years to come, the massive data and increasing volumes of data needs organized storing and fast and effective processing for variety of purposes from decision making to risk management, from transaction processing to state-the art products has lead to the current trends and more important to th continued growth of this sector.

As you can see from alot of the blogs already posted on the topic of “trends of information systems” my points above have been well illisurated, but i just wanted to give a little insight into why the need for these trends have come about .
