dc.description.abstract Useful guide for students providing a sound technical understanding of information systems while also taking into account more philosophical, scientific and organisational aspects. This text consist of twelve chapters, which can be grouped roughly into the following three sections. The scientific context: a review of the fundamental scientific concepts on which IS builds: what is information, what is a system and what are information systems. The technological context: an overview of relevant technology: hardware, software and communications technology. The organisational context: the development and deployment of information systems as well as some wider societal concerns. It is important that this text not be seen separate from the practical worksheets, case studies, videos and group work, which will be provided in the lectures. The intention of these additional materials is to enhance the educational process through participatory learning units: you learn best when doing. It is also our conviction that university students need to be introduced from the first year to academic pluralism: too often undergraduate students get the impression that there is a single correct approach or, even worse, that most problems have only one correct solution or answer. This text is therefor supplemented with additional readings, culled from the world-wide web, in which we hope to expose students to different views of the material presented in the concepts part. en_ZA
