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]

"In management information systems, a dashboard is "an easy to read, often single page, real-time user interface, showing a graphical presentation of the current status (snapshot) and historical trends of an organization’s key performance indicators to enable instantaneous and informed decisions to be made at a glance."
For example, a manufacturing dashboard may show key performance indicators related to productivity such as number of parts manufactured, or number of failed quality inspections per hour. Similarly, a human resources dashboard may show KPIs related to staff recruitment, retention and composition, for example number of open positions, or average days or cost per recruitment.
Types of dashboards.
Dashboard of Sustainability screen shot illustrating example dashboard layout.
Digital dashboards may be laid out to track the flows inherent in the business processes that they monitor. Graphically, users may see the high-level processes and then drill down into low level data. This level of detail is often buried deep within the corporate enterprise and otherwise unavailable to the senior executives.
Three main types of digital dashboard dominate the market today: stand alone software applications, web-browser based applications, and desktop applications also known as desktop widgets. The last are driven by a widget engine.
Specialized dashboards may track all corporate functions. Examples include human resources, recruiting, sales, operations, security, information technology, project management, customer relationship management and many more departmental dashboards.
Digital dashboard projects involve business units as the driver and the information technology department as the enabler. The success of digital dashboard projects often depends on the metrics that were chosen for monitoring. Key performance indicators, balanced scorecards, and sales performance figures are some of the content appropriate on business dashboards." [Dashboard (management information systems). Wikipedia]

This example of automated payroll management system UML activity diagram was created on the base of figure on the webpage "Automated payroll management system" from ethelmandane.wikispaces.com.
"In the Philippines and in other foreign countries the government has a trend to embrace automation for process efficiency. One of the processes that are being automated is the payroll process. Payroll is the total amount required to pay workers and employees during a week, month or other period.
One of the government offices that desires to automate their payroll system is the NSO Camarines Sur which is located 2nd Floor MMCN Building, Panganiban Avenue, Naga City. The National Statistics Office (NSO) envisions to be recognized as a world-class provider of statistical and civil registration products and services and lives with its mission to produces and provides quality statistical and civil registration products and services. ...
The project seeks to create an Information System Plan for an Automated Payroll Management System. ...
The creation of the Information System Plan will benefit the accounting section of the organization. Specifically it is significant to:
1. Administrative Assistants. It will help to lessen time and effort in preparing and computing the salary of the employee.
2. NSO. It will help the organization to be more productive and efficient."

Accounting Information Systems Flowchart Symbols

Accounting Information system is a combination of software and hardware, as well as organizational support. Information system - it is not only the software and computers with network equipment, but also a list of instructions and standards which can be notated using Accounting information systems flowchart symbols. All information systems can be divided into information retrieval and data processing systems. Data Flow model is a hierarchical model. Each process can be divided into structural components, that depict by corresponding flowchart symbols, showing the accounting information system in communication with the external environment. The major components of accounting information systems flowchart are: entities, processes, data stores, and data flows. The set of standard accounting information flowchart symbols is intended to show the relationships between the system components. ConceptDraw PRO can help to draw clear accounting information system diagrams using special flowchart symbols. Read more

Like a car's dashboard (or control panel), a software dashboard provides decision makers with the input necessary to "drive" the business. Thus, a graphical user interface may be designed to display summaries, graphics (e.g., bar charts, pie charts, bullet graphs, "sparklines," etc.), and gauges (with colors similar to traffic lights) in a portal-like framework to highlight important information. ...
Digital dashboards allow managers to monitor the contribution of the various departments in their organization. To gauge exactly how well an organization is performing overall, digital dashboards allow you to capture and report specific data points from each department within the organization, thus providing a "snapshot" of performance."
