Information Technology for Business

Information Technology (IT) is a broad all-encompassing term that defines the use of computer processing and data communications to store, manipulate, produce, communicate and generally manage information efficiently. Information Systems (IS) are the application software that use IT capabilities to process information in a specific manner to support a defined set of business processes such as accounts receivable, inventory control, sales order processing, etc. With Information Technology becoming ubiquitously available at decreasing costs, increasing power and greater capabilities, business applications have evolved from basic transaction processing to highly sophisticated real-time business systems supporting every area in a business. Electronic Business, eBusiness or e-Business incorporates Internet technology to integrate the business systems of external constituents such as customers and suppliers into a highly functional, seamless information system across the value chain.
