What is the difference between an Information technology and Information System?
I believe that Information Technology refers to everything to do with the 'How' of it like which computer/program/modem/wireless/general equipment is available. The Information System deals more directly with the specific needs of the user which also can incorporate the above list as well, just on a user level rather than an overall level.

Information Systems is a large umbrella referring to systemsdesigned to create, store, manipulate, or disseminate information.An example of an information system is a pencil …and a piece ofpaper. The two objects themselves are just tools, but together theycreate a system for writing (information). Information technology falls under the information systemsumbrella but has nothing to do with systems per say. IT deals withthe technology involved in the systems themselves, e.g. aninformation system like wiki.answers.com contains many informationtechnologies. Servers, server operating systems, web serversoftware (IIS, Apache, et al.), and code written for the web serversoftware (PHP, C#, VB, PERL, Ruby, et al.).
Information Systems is a large umbrella referring to systems designed to codify, gather, create, store, manipulate, or communicate information. Some examples of information s…ystems are: . A coding method for uniquely identifying library books. . A protocol and terminology for expressing the quality of a product. . A series of reports providing steering information to a company board. . A method of disseminating board directives to different roles within an organisation structure. . Policies and processes for ensuring that appropriate business intelligence is gathered. . A series of steps needed to provide information to prove a benefit entitlement. Notice that technology doesn't necessarily feature in any of these. The term Information systems has been around a lot longer than the computer, or the term information technology. These days the two are sometimes thought to be synonymous, but that, in most cases, is a misconception. Information technology falls under the information systems umbrella, but has nothing to do with systems per se. IT deals with the technology that enables or supports those systems, where this is applicable, e.g. an information system like wiki.answers.com contains many information technologies. Servers, server operating systems, web-server software (IIS, Apache, et al), and code written for the web-server software (PHP, C#, VB, PERL, Ruby, et al). Even your computer and browser make up part of this information system. Like the pencil and paper example, each one of the mentioned parts of this information system in itself is an information technology. db . Information System is a general term which is a collection of interrelated component for data processing. In other word It include all the operations and procedures involved in a data processing. . Information Technology is the acquisition, processing and distribution of information by microelectronics systems through computers and telecommunication.
Answer It is the evolution of electronic devices that aid the access to information or data. Computers, servers, mircrochips, etc are all part of electroni…c devices that give things like your dell or HP computer more memory to store more software like Money, Quickbooks, Excel, etc. These programs will help to aid your business information software and make you and your company more productive.
Answer . Generally, IT is the architecture supporting business... the network devices and hardware. IS is the software running over IT, like databases, enterprise planning …programs, and other software support tools. Information technology refers to devices which allows the storage and manipulation of data and information. This could include PCs, PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants), mobile phones, etc. An information system is a system which allows the storage and manipulation of information across many devices, and accessible by anyone with access. An example of an information system is an MIS (Management Information System) which may hold information regarding employee's at a company. Managers can access all the information stored on an employee at any time to update things such as holiday requests, etc. Put simply, information technology refers to physical hardware. Information systems on the other hand is a means of storing and manipulating information as needed. Information Systems is a large umbrella referring to systems designed to create, store, manipulate, or disseminate information. Example of an information system is a pencil and a piece of paper. The two objects themselves are just tools, but together they create a system for writing (information).

It could also mean that the author is using the terms interchangeably, which is technically incorrect, but not always frowned upon.
Answer Information is data that has been organized or otherwise grouped in a way that it useful to some purpose. Technology is using new informa…tion to improve a product, or create a new product.
Computer Information Technology refers to hardware (PC's, servers, networks etc) and the associated operating system software (broadly computer software in general can o…r could be referred to as a form of information technology). Computer Information Systems are a type of computer software used for the collection of raw data on to which queries can be asked. The output of the queries would then be termed as Information (and may be presented in the form of pie charts, line graphs etc).
Information Technologies specifically deal with all aspects of Data, Information and Knowledge, whereas non-Information Technologies deal with the design, specification, and/o…r construction of areas that are not related to Data, Information, and Knowledge. For example, a transistor, a radio, satellite and a Document Management System "are" Information Technologies, while electromagnets nanotechnologies are, in fact, technologies but are not considered to be Information Technologies.
Answer ICT intrisically includes bringing communication technology like telephony to places that never hadit before difference of IT and ICT ICT intrisicall…y includes bringing communication technology like telephony to places that never hadit before
Nothing. They are the same. Same in Question
both are inseparable field.
Computer Information Technology= This answer covers anything that has to be with The design, Support of hardware and development, AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS.. Information System…s= Mostly DATABASES. This DOES NOT HAVE TO BE ALWAYS with a computer, You can create a information system when you write, talk, or example when you create a list of your favorites songs in a piece of paper, etc.
Information Communications Technologies (ICTs), such as Radios, Satellites, Hyper Text Transmission Protocol (HTTP), and Extract Transformation & Load (ETL) solutions, are a s…ubset of all Information Technologies. ICTs only focus on the "transmission" and "reception" of data, whereas the general term "Information Technology" represents any technology that deals with any aspect of Data, Information and/or Knowledge.
Information technology is a specific type of technology involvingthe processing, storage, and exchange of information. Technology is a very broad field involving the knowledge… of makingany kind of tool, the making of things needed to make and use thosetools, and many other related things. Even the making and using ofearly stone tools is a technology. Even our early prehumanancestors had technologies and no modern human (even many thousandsof years ago) has lived without having many technologies that theyused every single day. The word 'technology' can apply to anything - from a ball-point pen to a Boeing 777. Information technology usually just refers to computer-related objects etc.
IT is more concerned with technology creation or what we can call IT Artefacts, while IS is concerned about the usage (by people) of these technologies, and their social impli…cations or effects. IT is more about collection,processing,storing and transmitting of data while IS about nertworking of technologies.
Information is the data and its relationships to and from other data, whereas, Information Technology revolves around the sciences, the solutions, the professional disciplines… and the industry that all revolve around dealing with Information.
A "System" is a set of interdependent products, services, tools, technologies, data, people, processes and roles and responsibilities that work together to solve a given probl…em. An "Information System" is, therefore a System that focuses on working specifically with data and information. Therefore, an "Information Technology" is component that is a dependency of an Information System and that is specifically used to help create, operate or support the Information System.
