    The environment - everything that influences and is influenced by the information system.
    The purpose - a statemnt identifying who the information system is for and what it needs to achieve.
    Who the information system is for includes individuals and organisations.
    The information system - a set of information processes requiring participants, data/information and information technology built to satisfy a purpose.
    Information processes - computer based and non-computer based activities.
    Information technology - hardware and software used in the information processes.
    Data - the raw material used by information processes.
    Information - the output displayed by an information system.
    User - a person who views or uses the information output from an information system.
    Participant - a special class of user who carries out the information processes within an information system.
    Students learn to:
    Diagrammatically represent a given scenario that involves an information system.
    Explain how an information system impacts on its environment and how it in turn impacts on its information system.
    Describe the environment and purpose of an information system.
    Explain how a given need can be supported by an information system.
    Describe an information system in terms of its purpose.

    Chapter 8.1 : Introduction to Information Skills and Systems
    An information system has a purpose in that it addresses the need(s) of a group or an individual. It performs the information processes of collecting, organising, analysing, storing/retrieving, processing, transmitting/receiving and displaying. Information processes involve computer and non-computer activities.For the processes to occur, participants (people), data/information and informationtechnologies (hardware and software) are required. The purpose for an informationsystem defines who it is for and what they need. Information systems give riseto ethical issues for people directly and indirectly involved with them. Theyhave a social impact on the environment in which they operate.
