The Merging of information systems and computer systems has vastly aided humans ability to design and create technical structures such as buildings, bridges, machines, etc. Computer aided Design softwares help make it possible for designer to increase the quality of their designs, some softwares can even given a 3 dimensional view of the structure begin created. This technology can help designers see the flaws in their designs and even help communicate idea for the structure to the people working on it.
For instance take the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, a lot of work and planing has been invested to ensure that the building is structurally sound and can withstand any form of attack be it natural or terrorist related. A good way to achieve that goal is to utilize the features of Computer Aided Design softwares (CAD) to help work out the flaws of the design.

Remote presence via networked devices was so big at ITP 8 yrs ago. Cool to see widely available consumer tech finally get there. (via Feel Me App Turns Texting Into Touching | Co.Design: business innovation design)

Although technology has made many things more accessible, it has helped cripple the need for face to face interaction due to our continued dependence on fruits of technology such as Facebook, Myspace, Skype, Instagram, etc. With the help of Information Technology we now begin to combat the gap created by our technology addiction. This is the beginning of the battle….

Cloud computing defined as the delivery of computing and storage capacity as a service to a community of end-recipients. It is the concept of selling invisible space to people and or companies for storage helping them cut back enormously on overhead cost they would normally incur. This concept of Cloud computing is what fuels most businesses these days, take Facebook for instance. They rely very highly on cloud computing to run their day to day business otherwise they would have to pay for tons of servers to process the traffic they receive on their website on a daily basis which would cost them millions of dollars.

The continuous development of innovative technology is the very thing that makes Information System run like a well oiled machine.

An example of this is the new program Virginia CommonWealth University is beginning with a school in Abu dhabi. We are attempting to teach a masters program via to communicate with peers by voice, video, and instant messaging over the Internet. This wouldn’t be possible without the creation of applications such as Oovoo, Skype, etc.

Our lives could have been described by this picture prior to the integration of Information systems to our society. Information System was the catalyst that modernized the business, social, and even educational norms in our society.
