Computer Information Technology refers to hardware (PC's,

servers, networks etc) and the associated operating system software

(broadly computer software in general can or 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).
