After reading the definitions and browsing these web sites PC Magazine, http://www.pcmag.com/ and CIO.com, http://www.cio.com/ for real applications of information systems, do the following:

Please write a 2-3 page paper (APA format using at least 4 peer review citations), structured as follows (please use these headings):

-Define an information system and types of information systems
- Provide three examples of information systems used in real life (from your experience or from the sites you visited) and tell us what type of information systems they (for example, an information system used by a cashier in a grocery store is a transaction processing system because it registers all the transactions).
- How this is related to the learning objectives of this module

Systems Analysis is devised.

Systems analysis is the second phase in the systems development life cycle. In the prior phase, systems planning, you prepared a feasibility study and proposed a broad solution to problems you identified. In the systems analysis phase you will develop a model of your proposed system. This phase applies modeling techniques such as requirements modeling, data and process modeling, and object modeling. The goal of this step is to build a solid foundation for the design phase of the project.

For this project, you will prepare a System Requirements document using MS Word. The document should include the following:

A business letter introducing the contents of this document and summarizing any changes made from the feasibility study
A description of the resources required for the project and how they will be utilized
A visual representation of the system including its constituent components (you should use a drawing program and embed the graphic into your document or use MS Word's drawing capabilities)
A discussion of the analysis performed and the conclusions reached
A summary of the system requirements for the project, including cost estimates
