HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT 1
1. Of the five primary components of an information system (hardware, software, data, people,
process), which do you think is the most important to the success of a business organization?
Write a one-paragraph answer to this question that includes an example from your personal experience to support your answer.
2. We all interact with various information systems every day: at the grocery store, at work, at school, even in our cars (at least some of us). Make a list of the different information systems you interact with every day. See if you can identify the technologies, people, and processes involved.
3. Do you agree that we are in a post-PC stage in the evolution of information systems? Some people argue that we will always need the personal computer, but that it will not be the primary device used for manipulating information. Others think that a whole new era of mobile and biological computing is coming. Do some original research and make your prediction about what business computing will look like in the next generation in making these systems work.
