...P4 - Describe the features and functions of information systems Features of information systems Information systems have five main features, which are data, people, hardware, software and telecommunications. Data – The data input to the system has to be as accurate as possible, subject to it's cost and timescales for capture. It should then be stored in the most logical way. This often differs from how the data is input. The data then needs to be summarised to create information in a way that best meets the needs of the system's user, this may not necessarily be the most logical way or the easiest or cheapest for the IT team. People – People are involved both in capturing the data and in exploiting the information. It is important to motivate those who capture the data by highlighting the value that the exploited data brings to the organisation. Hardware – In a small organisation the MIS ( management information system) may run on just the sales or finance director's PC. In larger businesses it usually runs on a server either shared or dedicated with internet or intranet access for those who need it. It is unusual to require specialised hardware. Software – The simplest MIS can be built using standard software. However, most MIS use specialised software, which has the most common features of an MIS already built in. The developer configures this by describing the database and its structure, where the data comes from, how to summarise the data ans what......

Computer System

...How to Use the Command Line A Second Lesson The article How to Use the Command Line, A First Lesson briefly describes the command line, explains why it is important, and tells how to access it. It also introduces what are probably the three most basic commands on Linux and other Unix-like operating systems: pwd (which shows the directory in which the user is presently working), ls (which lists the files and directories) and cd(which changes directories). This lesson introduces six commonly used commands for creating, removing, copying and moving files and directories. The touch Command The touch command is the easiest way to create new, empty files. Its syntax is touch [option] file_name(s) No options are required for basic file creation. Thus, for example, to create a new file named file1 within the current directory(i.e., the directory in which the user is currently working), all that is necessary is to type the following command and then press the ENTER key: touch file1 Any number of files can be created simultaneously with touch. Each name must be separated by at least one space. Thus, example, the following would create three files named file2, file3, file4: touch file2 file3 file4 The existence of these new files can easily be confirmed by using the ls command and seeing if they are included in its output. For example, the following would provide the names of all of the files and directories in the current directory: ls A useful......
