Features and functions of information systems What is an information system? It’s a mixture of technical and human resources that are able to perform a variety of purposes from information and technology within an organisation/company to support its processes. They’re able to handle all incoming and outgoing information needed. There is a more specific type of information for managing information in an organisation called a Management Information System (MIS). Features Data: Data needs to be entered into an information system so it can be managed and processed so that the company will use to improve their performance.
Main software capabilities include resource planning and analysis, multiple project planning and critical path analysis. From these functions, the system will generate deliverables such as reports containing accurate, real time and vital data that can be used to analyze amongst others, the project’s progress. This paper sets out to evaluate the impact of using PMS, looking specifically at organizational level. First, it will look at PMS’s impact in aligning projects to organization’s key objectives and business strategy. Then it will evaluate PMS’s impact on resource allocation and business process improvements and lastly, it will critically discuss PMS’s role in measuring accountability and implementing best practices.
According to Richard Brisebois, Greg Boyd, and Ziad Shadid, “IT Governance is needed to ensure that the investments in IT generate value-reward-and mitigate IT-associated risks, avoiding failure. IT is central to organizational success – effective and efficient delivery of services and goods – especially when the IT is designed to bring about change in an organization. This change process, commonly referred to as “business transformation,” is now the prime enabler of new business models both in the private and public sectors.” (Brisebois, Boyd, & Ziad, n.d.). IM/IT priorities recently changed to concentrate on the integration of systems across several facilities, computerization of patient records and improve decision support for clinicians

Manage Requirements A documentation framework is essential for any large project; hence, RUP describes how to document functionality, constraints, design decisions and business requirements. Use Cases and Scenarios, are examples of artifacts prescribed by the process and have been found to be very effective at both capturing functional requirements and providing coherent threads throughout the development and deployment of the system. Use component based architecture Component Based Architecture creates a system that is easily extensible, promotes software reuse and intuitively understandable. A component often relates to an object in Object Orientated Programming. The RUP provides a systematic way to build this kind of system, focusing on producing an early executable architecture before committing full resources on a project.
