AIS which then outputs the information. An example would be inputting a sales order which outputs an invoice registry. Another example would be a journal entry that outputs a general ledger journal entry. The information is the analyzed data. AIS has a whole process that makes getting information from data in a more simplified way. Technology is a big part of going through the AIS system. Even though there are some manual AIS, a lot is done online. In infrastructures, the data and information are stored on the personal or the firm’s systems network. There are many different types of infrastructures to best fit the needed factors. Some of the factors include number of users, location, and confidentiality of data. Being able to accommodate the different ranges of needs makes more people want to use the systems and makes the users life more efficient. Learning the five components of AIS puts it into perspective how much AIS does. The five components include source documents, processing, sorted data, outputs and interfaces. I am an organized person and I like how there are many components that do different things. Having many components makes the users lives easier by sharing the information instead of having duplications of the same information. The picture at the end of the reading was very helpful for understanding interfaces. AIS has many concepts that are improving the efficiency for decision makers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
