Suppose that you had to explain to a member of your family or one of your closest friends the concept of an information system. How would you define it? Write a one-paragraph description in your own words that you feel would best describe an information system to your friends or family.
An information system is a set of components that make completing a task possible. Parts of the information system may include hardware, software, data, people and process. I will give you an example of telling your mom to pick you up from school. You (the person) use imessage (software) on your iphone (hardware) to send a text (process) that says “I am ready to be picked up” (data) to your mom (person).
