4 Level pyramid model diagram - Information systems types

A four level pyramid model of different types of Information Systems based on the different levels of hierarchy in an organization. The first level represents transaction processing systems for workers. The second level represents management information systems for middle managers. The third level represents decision support systems for senior menegers. The fourth level represents executive information systems for executives.
"The "classic" view of Information systems found in the textbooks in the 1980s was of a pyramid of systems that reflected the hierarchy of the organization, usually transaction processing systems at the bottom of the pyramid, followed by management information systems, decision support systems, and ending with executive information systems at the top. Although the pyramid model remains useful, since it was first formulated a number of new technologies have been developed and new categories of information systems have emerged, some of which no longer fit easily into the original pyramid model.
Some examples of such systems are:
data warehouses,
enterprise resource planning,
enterprise systems,
expert systems,
search engines,
geographic information system,
global information system,
office automation." [Information systems. Wikipedia]

A five level pyramid model of different types of Information Systems based on the information processing requirement of different levels in the organization. The first level represents transaction processing systems to process basic data. The second level represents office support systems to process information in office. The third level represents management information systems to process information by managers. The fourth level represents decision support systems to process explicit knowledge. The fifth level represents executive information systems to process tacit knowledge.
"A Computer(-Based) Information System is essentially an IS using computer technology to carry out some or all of its planned tasks. The basic components of computer based information system are:
(1) Hardware - these are the devices like the monitor, processor, printer and keyboard, all of which work together to accept, process, show data and information.
(2) Software - are the programs that allow the hardware to process the data.
(3) Databases - are the gathering of associated files or tables containing related data.
(4) Networks - are a connecting system that allows diverse computers to distribute resources.
(5) Procedures - are the commands for combining the components above to process information and produce the preferred output.
The first four components (hardware, software, database and network) make up what is known as the information technology platform. Information technology workers could then use these components to create information systems that watch over safety measures, risk and the management of data. These actions are known as information technology services." [Information systems. Wikipedia]

"What is a hiring list and what are they for?
A hiring list consists of applicants who completed and passed the examination for a vacant classified position.
The applicants are ranked on the hiring list in order from highest to lowest score." [dhr.idaho.gov/PDF%20documents/Flowchart/Hiring%20List%20Guidance.pdf]
"Announcements.
Announcing a vacant position benefits the agency by allowing a wide array of applicants the opportunity to compete for job openings, resulting in a more qualified employee. The State Merit System requires all appointments, promotions and separations in the classified service to be based on competence, valid job requirements, and individual performance." [dhr.idaho.gov/PDF%20documents/Flowchart/Announcement.pdf]
"Conducting A Lawful Employment Interview.
Interviewing prospective employees is one of the most important activities employers do. The employer’s objective of an interview is to determine whether an applicant is suitable for an available position. The interview provides the employer an opportunity to obtain in-depth information about a job applicant’s skills, work history, and employment background for this purpose." [dhr.idaho.gov/PDF%20documents/Flowchart/Conducting%20a%20Lawful%20Employment%20Interview.pdf]
"Reference Checks.
References should be checked after a successful interview with a candidate, but before you offer them the position. If after interviewing there are several candidates that are qualified for the position, reference checks are also a way to further distinguish who might best fit within your agency." [dhr.idaho.gov/PDF%20documents/Flowchart/Reference%20Checks.pdf]
"Making the job offer.
Before offering the position to your selected candidate, be sure to speak with your HR and fiscal staff. They may have some suggestions for negotiating the starting salary, etc.
Job Offer Letter.
... A job offer letter should be given to the newly hired employee after you have verbally negotiated the terms of employment. This letter confirms the conditions of employment the selected candidate has accepted and gives them information for their first day." [dhr.idaho.gov/PDF%20documents/Flowchart/Making%20the%20job%20offer.pdf]
"E-verify.
To ensure compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order 2009-10, all
State Agencies are encouraged to participate in E-verify.
E-verify is an internet based system that allows an employer, using information reported on an employee’s Form I-9, to determine the eligibility of that employee to work in the United States.
The E-Verify system is operated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in partnership with the Social Security Administration and its use is free of charge to employers." [dhr.idaho.gov/PDF%20documents/Flowchart/EVerify%20Statement.pdf]
"New Hire Paperwork.
There are several important forms for the new employee to fill out." [dhr.idaho.gov/PDF%20documents/Flowchart/New%20Hire%20Paperwork.pdf]
"Probationary Period.
All appointments and promotions into classified positions require a probationary period of 1,040 hours
except for peace officers who must serve 2,080 hours.
The probationary period is a working test period to evaluate the work performance of the employee and to determine their suitability for the position." [dhr.idaho.gov/PDF%20documents/Flowchart/Probationary%20Period%20for%20Hiring%20Process.pdf]
