HISTORYThe Punjab Group of Colleges established its first facility, the Punjab College of Commerce. In1985 in Muslim Town on Canal Bank in Lahore, Followed a few years later by the Punjab LawCollege. Since then the Punjab Group (PGC) has successfully branched out into various cities ofPunjab. Following arrangements with foreign accredited universities, Punjab College of BusinessAdministration (PCBA) was established in 1991 and Punjab Institute of Computer Science(PICS), in 1993, at Lahore. Both institutions emerged as highly specialized schools, trainingindividuals as successful professional managers and computer scientists.With a view to meeting academic needs of students, the Group went ahead and establishedanother network in various cities of the Punjab by the name of ‘Punjab College of InformationTechnology’ (PCIT), the first having been established in Lahore in 2000. The Group has within aperiod of 27 years, not only established as many as 234 college campuses, three universities and350+ schools but has also earned reputation as the largest network of highly vibrant andprogressive institutions in the country. Mohammed Ali Jinnah University in Sindh and theUniversity of Central Punjab are both chartered universities of the Group and are being rated
very high in their respective domains. All these Institutions together have more than 1,89,000students on rolls.EXECUTIVE SUMMARYThe Punjab college of information and technology mission is to extend commerce and businesseducation throughout Pakistan and to produce quality business specialists.

Timelyavailability of relevant information is vital for effective performance of managerial functionssuch as planning, organizing, leading, and control. An information system in an organization islike the nervous system in the human body: it is the link that connects all the organizationscomponents together and provides for better operation and survival in a competitiveenvironment. Indeed, todays organizations run on information.The term information system usually refers to a computer-based system, one that is designed tosupport the operations, management, and decision functions of an organization. Informationsystems in organizations thus provide information support for decision makers. Informationsystems encompass transaction processing systems, management information systems, decisionsupport systems, and strategic information systemsDATA VERSUS INFORMATIONData refers to raw, unevaluated facts, figures, symbols, objects, events, etc. Data may be acollection of facts lying in storage, like a telephone directory or census records.Information is data that have been put into a meaningful and useful context and communicated toa recipient who uses it to make decisions. Information involves the communication and receptionof intelligence or knowledge. It appraises and notifies, surprises and stimulates, reducesuncertainty, reveals additional alternatives or helps eliminate irrelevant or poor ones, and
influences individuals and stimulates them to action. An element of data may constituteinformation in a specific context; for example, when you want to contact your friend, his or hertelephone number is a piece of information; otherwise, it is just one element of data in thetelephone directory.Computers have made the processing function much easier. Large quantities of data can beprocessed quickly through computers aiding in the conversion of data to information. Raw dataenter the system and are transformed into the systems output, that is, information to supportmanagers in their decision making.CHARACTERISTICS OF INFORMATIONThe characteristics of good information are relevance, timeliness, accuracy, cost-effectiveness,reliability, usability, exhaustiveness, and aggregation level. Information is relevant if it leads toimproved decision making. It might also be relevant if it reaffirms a previous decision. If it doesnot have anything to do with your problem, it is irrelevant. For example, information about theweather conditions in Paris in January is relevant if you are considering a visit to Paris inJanuary. Otherwise, the information is not relevant.VALUE OF INFORMATIONInformation has a great impact on decision making, and hence its value is closely tied to thedecisions that result from its use. Information does not have an absolute universal value. Its valueis related to those who use it, when it is used, and in what situation it is used. In this sense,information is similar to other commodities.Information supports decisions, decisions trigger actions, and actions affect the achievements orperformance of the organization. If we can measure the differences in performance, we can tracethe impact of information, provided that the measurements are carefully performed, therelationships among variables are well defined, and possible effects of irrelevant factors areisolatedNETWORKING AND INTERACTIVE PROCESSINGThe two principal blocks that facilitate development and use of MIS are DBMS andtelecommunications.The former makes data integration possible, while the latter bringsinformation closer to the end users, who constitute nodes in a telecommunication network. Thenotion of telecommunications implies that some geographical distance exists between thecomputer site and the users locations and that data are electronically transmitted between them.Remote applications may be executed between two floors in the same building, two offices in thesame city.SOFTWARES USE IN PCIT
Software is a general term for the various kinds of programs used to operate computers andrelated devices. (The term hardware describes the physical aspects of computers and relateddevices.)Software can be thought of as the variable part of a computer and hardware the invariable part.Software is often divided into application software (programs that do work users are directlyinterested in) and system software (which includes operating systems and any program thatsupports application software). The term middleware is sometimes used to describeprogramming that mediates between application and system software or between two differentkinds of application software (for example, sending a remote work request from an application ina computer that has one kind of operating system to an application in a computer with a differentoperating system).APPLICATION SOFTWAREApplication software is a program or group of programs designed for end users. These programsare divided into two classes: system software and application software. While system softwareconsists of low-level programs that interact with computers at a basic level, application softwareresides above system software and includes database programs, word processors, spreadsheets,etc. Application software may be grouped along with system software or published alone.Application software may simply be referred to as an application. Like Microsoft Office NOD32 Anti-Virus Adobe ReaderSYSTEM SOFTWARESystem software is responsible for controlling, integrating, and managing the individualhardware components of a computer system so that other software and the users of the systemsee it as a functional unit without having to be concerned with the low-level details such astransferring data from memory to disk, or rendering text onto a display. Generally, systemsoftware consists of an operating system and some fundamental utilities. Like Operating System (Windows XP and Linux) for PC’s. Windows 2007 server for mainframes DEVICES USED INPUT DEVICES Keyboard: Mouse OUTPUT DEVICES
Monitor Printer STORAGE DEVICES CD and DVD Floppy Disk Hard Disk Memory Card USB Flash Drives Processing Devices Central processing unit
