Informatics is the science of information, engineering of information systems and information processing. It is the multidisciplinary field which deals with the information analysis, its collection, transmission, storage, utilization and dissemination. The field is closely related to computer sciences as well as communications, mathematics, electronics, philosophy, management and library science. Informatics and information sciences became popular since the first digital information devices were introduced. Modern organizations exchange the information using information transmission devices and their programming systems. This results the high demand of IT specialists, who understand the latest information and communication technology issues, develop the software and solve practical engineering problems. The study field also deals with the ways how the information is used and affects human welfare. There are many contributing disciplines, such as computer science, communication studies, complex systems, information theory, information technology, didactics of informatics and etc.
Information Technology (IT) influences the foundation of business processes as it impacts on all organizations and industries. Organizations must know how to make the right choices with respect to new Information Systems (IS).
