ITinformation technologiescomputer industry
Information systems typically include an ICT component but are not purely concerned with ICT, focusing instead on the end use of information technology.
An information technology system (IT system) is generally an information system, a communications system or, more specifically speaking, a computer system – including all hardware, software and peripheral equipment – operated by a limited group of users.

Knowledge management

There are various types of information systems, for example: transaction processing systems, decision support systems, knowledge management systems, learning management systems, database management systems, and office information systems.
An established discipline since 1991, KM includes courses taught in the fields of business administration, information systems, management, library, and information sciences.

Decision support system

There are various types of information systems, for example: transaction processing systems, decision support systems, knowledge management systems, learning management systems, database management systems, and office information systems. The "classic" view of Information systems found in textbooks in the 1980s was a pyramid of systems that reflected the hierarchy of the organization, usually transaction processing systems at the bottom of the pyramid, followed by management information systems, decision support systems, and ending with executive information systems at the top.
A decision support system (DSS) is an information system that supports business or organizational decision-making activities.

Enterprise software

Enterprise software is an integral part of a (computer-based) information system; a collection of such software is called an Enterprise system.

Systems development life cycle

system development life cycleSystems development life-cyclelife cycle
Many developers use a systems engineering approach such as the system development life cycle (SDLC), to systematically develop an information system in stages.
In systems engineering, information systems and software engineering, the systems development life cycle (SDLC), also referred to as the application development life-cycle, is a process for planning, creating, testing, and deploying an information system.

Information

Information systems (IS) are formal, sociotechnical, organizational systems designed to collect, process, store, and distribute information. Information systems bridges business and computer science using the theoretical foundations of information and computation to study various business models and related algorithmic processes on building the IT systems within a computer science discipline.
The information cycle (addressed as a whole or in its distinct components) is of great concern to information technology, information systems, as well as information science.

Global information system

A specific case is the geographical distribution of the development team (offshoring, global information system).
Common to this class of information systems is that the context is a global setting, either for its use or development process.
