Information systems should be created with usability, graphic design and analytical design principles
summary conclusions
Summary & Conclusions
  • The information systems triangle includes people, processes, and information technology. It is a good reminder that MIS is about much more than just technology.
  • Well designed information systems keep the user in mind at each step of the process.
  • Information systems are used by every functional area of business--marketing, management, finance, and accounting. For this reason it is good to have a strong background in information systems.
  • Careers in information systems tend to be dynamic, team based, and focused on problem solving.
summary conclusions1
Summary & Conclusions
  • Few information systems careers involve programming. However, IS professionals must be able to communicate with programmers.
  • The Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is an approach for designing and developing MIS solutions. It proceeds in stages: analysis, requirements (vision of future state), design, development, and implementation.
  • Information systems professionals often make the equivalent of a sketch of the design of the final system. When the sketches are crude they are called wireframes; when they are more refined they are called mockups. However, sometimes the terms are used interchangeably.
