Complete week 1 | Information Systems homework help

Category: Information System

We interact with information systems every day. For example, libraries have systems that enable you to search for, reserve, and check out books; utilities maintain systems that enable customer service representatives to answer questions about your bill; and your grocery store checkout station is connected to multiple systems that enable the store executives to determine staffing levels, inventory levels, advertising, and promotion efforts.

Select an information system you use on a regular basis.

Create an overview that explains the following:

  • The type of the information system
  • The evolution of the selected type of information system. (e.g. the evolution of student financial aid systems in general)
  • How the information system affected jobs and careers. (e.g. before financial aid systems were developed and which jobs supported the function of financial aid that do not exist today due to technology)
  • The names of the components used and a description of the purpose or role of each. (Hint: Use information system components you learned so far.)
  • The benefits this system evolution has brought to you, the organization implementing the change, and other people or organizations within the community

Present your recommendation in one of the following ways:

  • A 2-page Microsoft® Word document
  • A 12- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with detailed speaker notes and appropriate animations

Note: You can include diagrams developed with Microsoft® Visio®, Microsoft® PowerPoint®, or another software application approved by your Instructor if you feel it will enhance your recommendation.

Resource:

  • Lynda.com® course, “Learning Infographic Design” by Amy Balliett
  • Chapter 1 Section 1.2 Introduction to Information Systems.  Explains the differences between data, information and knowledge.

Now that you know the definitions of data, information and knowledge, compare and contrast all three terms using the following scenario:

Big Bank runs a free daycare service for all of its employees. The company wants to easily identify employees who use the service and where it is best for parents to pick up their kids based on the multiple locations. The bank locations are all in the city of Chicago. Each location has at least 75 employees. The bank consistently is ranked within the top 100 places to work. Each location offers at least one restaurant on site. Food trucks are brought in once a month for variety.

  • Each employee can have multiple children enrolled in the daycare center.
  • Employees can be described by their employee ID number, first name, last name, phone number, and work location.
  • Children can be described by their first name, last name, gender, and date of birth.
  • Because children are provided with lunch and snacks, it is important to track dietary restrictions (e.g., gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, food allergies, etc.).
  • Each child is assigned to one of three rooms based on age, maturity, and parents work location.

Develop a 1-page document to compare and contrast the terms data, information, and knowledge. Alternatively, create an infographic using an infographic maker such as Piktochart, Venngage, or Canva.

Include the answers to the following questions in your document or infographic:

  • Why does it matter if an information system developer mixes up the terms data, information, and knowledge?
  • What consequences might result in designing an information system if the terms were interpreted improperly?
