Computer Science is a specialized degree field that can be broken into a several concentrations. One of the most important topics of study within the industry is the focus on Information Systems. The critical understanding of networks and the processes of collecting, filtering, organizing and distributing the data are the core foundations for efficient and effective information systems.

The study of information systems bridges the gap between business and computer sciences by deriving business models and ensuring functionality with design. The vast reliance the global marketplace has on information and the accessibility of data is increasing the need for well-educated and skilled IT professionals. The concept of requiring an efficient information system is concurrent with the development of computer science entirely. The two core concepts ensure the complete process of data distribution, integrity and availability.

Information Systems is usually taught as a pyramid of hierarchy containing four levels of study. The base of the pyramid is considered ‘transaction support systems’ , followed by ‘management information systems’, thirdly, or second from the top is decision support systems and finally executive information systems at the top of the pyramid. The ever evolving technology will always be contributing more specific areas of information systems to the entire program of study, so the pyramid method is a good start but not the final product. Examples of newer technologies are search engines, global information systems as well as office automation and enterprise systems.

Graduates will use the learned technology and skills to educate and inform others on the procedures of properly using the theories and strategies of computer science, software, hardware, people and how, combining all the elements creates useful information for organizations. The intrinsic role of information systems gains a foundation from computer sciences and engineered results, the results then create useful data and programs that upper management and business’ can use in future decision making.
