Some part of your world – the town you live in, the company you work for, your school system, the city hospital – will hang there in sharp colour image, abstract but recognisable, moving subtly in a thousand places (1992: 1). <br />David Gelernter (1992) Mirror worlds or the day software puts the universe in a shoebox<br />

  • 12. Which one do you mean?<br />Carvalho (2000) identifies four types of objects that can be viewed as information systems:<br /> <br />IS1: Organisations (autonomous systems) whose business (purpose) is to provide information to their clients.<br /> <br />IS2: A sub-system that exists in any system that is capable of governing itself (autonomous system). The information system (IS2) assures the communication between the managerial and operational sub-systems of an organisation – that’s its purpose. When this communication is asynchronous, a memory to store the messages is necessary. IS2 includes such memory.<br /> <br />IS3: Any combination of active objects (processors) that deal only with symbolic objects (information) and whose agents are computers or computer-based devices – a computer-based system.<br /> <br />IS4: Any combination of active objects (processors) that deal only with symbolic objects (information).<br />Carvalho, J.A.
