CIS 207 Week 1 Participation- Discussion- Access to Knowledge is Power
 

Information technology has advanced to the point where we can almost literally “never be out of touch” with data, information, and other people. Almost instant access can be a benefit to those working with and using the information.

Select one information system in use at an organization with which you are familiar (e.g., work, library, school, government agency, or community organization).

Explain its importance and benefits to the organization.

Example: A community food pantry tracks donations, dispersals, and inventory at multiple locations throughout the community. The information system provides information about high-use, excess inventory, and low inventory, so the coordinators can move inventory to where it is needed. This enables the organization to serve the most community members possible and reduce waste from unused inventory at lower-volume sites.
