nformation Systems in Everyday Life
We all interact with various information systems every day: at the grocery store, at work, at school, even in our cars (at least for some of us). List three (3) different information systems you interact with regularly (or often); provide the type of function they perform along with where you encounter each system. For example, my car has a built-in navigation system that I interact with on a regular basis to plan routes, get traffic information, and locate restaurants, gas stations, and other services (so this example has been used and shouldn't be repeated.) This navigation system represents an information system because it combines hardware, software, telecommunications or connectivity, and data. In addition, try to identify the technologies, people, and processes involved in making these systems work. Be sure you’re addressing examples of information systems rather than just hardware or one of the other components. Review Chapter 1 in Week 1 content if you’re unsure about what an information system is.
