Information Technology/Information Systems

For the purposes of discussion, we use the concept of Information Systems IS) to mean the system of persons, data records and activities that process the data and information in a given organization, company or field of endeavor, and we include both manual and/or automated processes. We understand that the term is usually used synonymously for computer-based information systems, which is only the information technologies component of an Information System.

Wikipedia states, "The computer-based information systems are the field of study for Information Technologies (IT); however these should hardly be treated apart from the bigger Information System that is always envolved in (sic)."

"In general systems theory, an information system is a system, automated or manual, that comprises people, machines, and/or methods organized to collect, process, transmit, and disseminate data that represent user information."

For our consideration, IT can be used interchangeably with IS, and, essentially, is the basis of our INFORMATION SERVICES.

By hiring and retaining a highly skilled technical staff, with expert knowledge across the IT spectrum, we are able to offer the following services:

  • Disaster Recovery plans and systems
  • Application management and integration
  • Needs analysis
  • Strategic guidance and tactical decision making
  • File and application Server design, implementation and management
  • Server optimization
  • Virus protection
  • Project management
