Information Systems

In this unit, you have learned about management information systems (MIS) and   the importance of it. For this assignment, compose a paper that discusses the     key differences between data, information, information technology (IT), and      information systems (IS). Your paper should address the components listed      below.

  • Define what is meant by information.
  • Define what is meant by data.
  • Create two matrices (one for data and one for information) that                    illustrate the key differences between information and data, place the                    matrices into your paper, and briefly discuss the differences in        one or   two           paragraphs. Each matrix should contain    characteristics     and/or   facts  about   the       subjects (data and    information) that   show   how they   are     different.
  • Define IT.
  • Define IS.
  • Using the five-component model as an example, discuss some                    differences between IT and IS.

If you are using Microsoft Word, you can develop a matrix using this program.   For an example of how to create a matrix using Microsoft Word, see the explanation by clicking the link below.

Microsoft. (n.d.). Create a matrix. Retrieved from

You may use another computer software program that you are familiar with to     create the matrices. However, you must submit your assignment in a Microsoft      Word document, and the matrices should be included in the body of your      paper.

Your paper must be a minimum of two pages in length (not counting the title     and reference pages), and you must use at least two resources as references.      Any  information from these resources must be cited and referenced in APA      format.
