An information system is software that helps organize and analyse data. So, the purpose of an information system is to turn raw data into useful information that can be used for decision making in an organization. An information system is essentially made up of five components hardware, software, database, network and people. These five components integrate to perform input, process, output, feedback and control. Hardware consists of input/output device, processor, operating system and media devices. Software consists of various programs and procedures. Database consists of data organized in the required structure. Network consists of hubs, communication media and network devices. People consist of device operators, network administrators and system specialist. Next, Technology management is set of management disciplines that allows organizations to manage their technological fundamentals to create competitive advantage. Typical concepts used in technology management are technology strategy, technology forecasting, technology roadmap, technology project portfolio and technology portfolio. The role of the technology management function in an organization is to understand the value of certain technology for the organization. Continuous development of technology is valuable as long as there is a value for the customer and therefore the technology management function in an organization should be able to argue when to invest on technology development and when to withdraw. Information Technology is the technology and techniques used to ‘manage data'. IT includes Information Systems. Some Information Systems are used by managers of organisations and people. These are Management Information Systems. They manage information useful to people in ‘management roles'. The distinction is non-binary though because MIS are often used by people who aren't managers too.
