Organizations depend on quality data to perform
Information systems are an essential tool for the operation and management of various organizations. The ability of organizations to function depends on the quality of their information system and its' proper operation. Information systems are computer systems that help operate and manage all organizational functions. These systems allow users to access data essential to performance and decision-making. They enable the various users to carry out their day-to-day work and support the decision-making of managers at all levels: operational, tactical, and strategic.
The importance of highly trained information technicians is not to be undervalued and the demand for them is on the rise.Information systems include both technological components (hardware, software, computer networks, etc.) and human components. Organizations require technicians that are not only experts in programming and data analysis but can get to know the organization's needs and users to provide for their correct functions. In addition to the above professional skills, information systems personnel should have analytical thinking, interpersonal communication skills, and teamwork abilities.
The School of Information Systems of the Netanya Academic College provides students with such abilities, taught in a wide range of courses, enabling them to work in a variety of positions and organizations that develop or use these systems.
Students are taught to analyze and characterize the organizations' various needs and to program and design the systems in accordance, and run them on a day-to-day basis using different models and techniques.
