Three dimensions for business problems.
According to Adair (2010), the three dimensions for a business problem include organization, people and technology. Each the three-dimensional problems cause businesses to encounter problems that they cannot handle and overcome. Adair emphasizes that these dimensional problems hinders businesses to operate efficiently and effectively (2010). The problems make the businesses lag behind in operations because the management spends extra time tackling these problems instead of establishing other business sectors. Adair asserts that the businesses spend a lot of time in solving these dimensional problems.
Adair (2010) confirms that poorly constructed processes in business are examples of organizational problems. The poor processes are a result of past, political wrangles, unsupportive culture and organizational surrounding. The business spends a lot of time in handling past business problems. The management team differs in the right path to steer the business.
William (2005) confirms that inadequate employee is an example of people problem in business. Inadequate employee encounter difficulty to handle business related issues making them incompetent. The business has trouble in evaluating her performance and income because her employees are incompetent. A weak management team has poor decision and management skills in handling business issues, therefore, affecting the progress in business.
Adair explains that technology problems involve technological issues in computers that affect the business (2010). Aged computers and hardware slow done business operations, therefore, affecting business processes. Outdated software slows down processes in the business and replacing them is expensive.
Differences between information system and information system.
Word and Magal (2010) assert that information system IS, is the combination of people’s operations that support the decision-making and management in business. The people’s operation combines the information technology to support business decisions and management. Adair emphasizes that IS ensured that processes data, people and technology operate as a unit (2010). Word and Magal defines information technology, the system that develops, manages and ensures that computer information systems effectively function (2010). IT makes storing, manipulating and retrieving of data possible in organizations.
Function of information system.
William (2005) confirms that Information system enables management to record organizational data that enable automated and manual business processes effective. IS explains real world empirical phenomena enabling the business processes to function.
