What are business information systems?
Change is an essential and unavoidable part of modern business. The introduction of new technology can play an important part in making changes to a business. Technology-enabled change influences the way a business is organised and the way in which people work within that business to benefit the organisation.

Business information systems study examines how to bring about business benefits through technology-enabled change while recognising the role of people in this process.
