Information technology has become integral to the way that we accomplish many tasks in business by utilizing application software to facilitate the flow of information and data between people or departments. These applications have three main purposes: Increase the productivity of users, enable users to be more effective, and provide tools to increase creativity and innovation. Systems development is the development of new applications. This is a multi-phased process comprising problem recognition, requirements determination, systems design, development and construction, implementation, and evaluation and continuing evolution.
