REFLECTION PAPER

It is extremely difficult to estimate the amount of knowledge in existence today. While knowledge is flowing in incredible pace, extraction and application of the relevant information from the bulk of knowledge is vital for many aspect of our lives. As an IMBA student in Florida International University, I have never thought that there was such a strict distinction between the information and the knowledge in today’s technology driven world. However, after taken this course, it is quite clear to me that gathering the beneficial information is not an easy task as it seems before. There are crucial elements to obtain valuable information for the businesses. Every business ...view middle of the document...

Only by following these steps in an order, people would gather the appropriate information which allow them to combine their knowledge with the data. However, it is a constantly active process that no one will serve the valuable information in a silver plate. This process of information has dynamic variables that we should be aware of carefully. Today, we made an apple pie for the unique tastes of people but in the future, it is not certain that there will be the same strong demand for the pie as there was before. Since, every living organism is changing in a certain way as well as their demands, purposes and tastes. Therefore, businesses which serves people’ needs can be considered as active entities. Information Technology offers businesses many opportunities to cope with these changes. Besides, the adaptation of the constantly changing world is crucial for many businesses to survive in the industry.

After having better understanding of the practices of information systems, the various capabilities of this system should be fully examined. Afterwards, the question of what can we do with Information Technologies should be asked. Changing the rules of the game would be the correct answer. This concept involves ongoing innovation and integration and it is clear that survival of the living organisms including businesses can only be achieved by stating the rules of the game. Metaphorically, an iceberg in the ocean can be considered as the business mechanics in todays world. The tip of the iceberg only represents the outcome of the businesses- the external part of the entity that can be easily recognized by the others. It can be profit or loss in their balance sheet as well as it can be a certain degree of success or failure among their competitors.
However, the actual factors that makes the businesses successful or not, may not be realized clearly as it lies underneath the surface. Therefore, to change the rules, we need to look at the %85 of the iceberg below the waterline which shaped the visible %15. Information Systems takes places in this point to support and make changes of our decisions. I, personally never thought businesses as an iceberg with hidden parts, that involves many variables within. This metaphorical approach changed my perception of seeking out the hidden possibilities that would be beneficial for continual improvement.

On the other hand, Information Systems has its own challenges when it comes to the application of the businesses. It is a complex task to find the proper answers of the questions such as ‘how the information systems can change my business through technology?’ it is clear that such systems offer many options to the businesses but the decision process for the right...
