What is IS?

Today, I was framed again by this silly question. Although I’ve been in IT industry for nearly 10 years, I can’t give a specific definition to this term. Shame on me laaa… hehee. But remember, as people, we a in a learning process. If we don’t know, it’s our duty to find it out.

So, what is IS or Information System and how IS give impact to our life? I believe IS having given many influences in our life. In this internet era, it’s hard to gain information if not using IS nowadays. IS and IT is different thing. Don’t think it is the same.

Before we know the IS, we have to know what is the ‘system’ itself. ‘System’ is a collections of inter related part that interact with each other to transform input into output to achieve certain goals. As an example, please take a look at our body system. We have hand, leg, head and other part that are working together. That make us alive.. 

What the information system? It’s a collection of Data, People, Hardware, Software, Process and Procedure that inter related and interact with each other to transform input into output to achieve goals or creating business value. The input is referring to data, then processed to produce output or Information that can be use by people.

So, what’s the impact of Information System to our life? We need a complete, accurate, reliable, relevant, objective, and timely data to help us in decision making. So, the information system helps us in gaining the information. We can see a lot of example of using internet for gaining information.

The end justifies the means.

When we talk about non-consequentialist theory, somehow we will find these words. “The end justifies the means” or in Malay word. We can say it as “Matlamat/Hasil menghalalkan Cara”. It was a big hit to my mind. Should it plant it in my mind? Hehe.. The question is there. Before this, I always heard about this words “ The end not justifies the means” or “ Hasil tidak menghalalkan cara”. But to be non-consequentialist, I’ve got to understand that the consequence is not concern in deontological theory.

Yeah… we have three indexes to measure the different between Teleological theory and Deontological theory. Firstly is the MOTIVE, deontological must have a right motive or intentions and also must have a right act or conduct. That was second index that’s ACT. So, deontological concern Motive and Act, they must be positive and we consider them as morally okay. The third index CONSEQUENCE is not considered in this theory.

As an example, when we give our children a money to buy a text book, there are many consequences will appear. If our children got the money and the he buy a book. There is no problem with that, but if he didn’t buy a book but buy a cigarette instead. Is this considered morally? Hehehee the question is there. To be non-consequentialist, the parents are considering morally because according to non-consequentialist theory, the consequences doesn’t enter into judgment. Yes, the parent have a right Motive or Intention to give a money to their child to buy a book, the parent also do a right Act by giving the money. This is considering morally by non-consequentialist.

As a Muslims, do we agree with this theory? Yup, certain part I’m agreeing with that. But I’m just a student of ethical class. I’m must study it… Or I got fail in the exam.. huhuu
Need to remember.

Philosophy, consist of three major area.

1) Epistemology
2) Metaphysics
3) Ethics

Menjaga Hati by Yovie & Nuno

This heavenly song sang by Yovie and Nuno is keep rhyming in my head now. Really nice song by Indonesian band, nice arrangement of music and beautiful lyrics. Really enjoy it...

Menjaga Hati by Yovie & Nuno

masih tertinggal bayanganmu
yang telah membekas di relung hatiku
hujan tanpa henti seolah bertanda
cinta tak disini lagi kau telah berpaling

biarkan aku menjaga perasaan ini
menjaga segenap cinta yang telah kau beri
engkau pergi aku takkan pergi
kau menjauh aku takkan jauh
sebenarnya diriku masih mengharapkan mu

masih adakah cahaya rindumu
yang dulu selalu cerminkan hatimu
aku takkan bisa menghapus dirimu
meski kulihat kau kini diseberang sana

biarkan aku menjaga perasaan ini
menjaga segenap cinta yang telah kau beri
engkau pergi aku takkan pergi
kau menjauh aku takkan jauh
sebenarnya diriku masih mengharapkan mu

andai akhirnya kau tak juga kembali
aku tetap sendiri menjaga hati

biarkan aku menjaga perasaan ini
menjaga segenap cinta yang telah kau beri
engkau pergi aku takkan pergi
kau menjauh aku takkan jauh
sebenarnya diriku masih mengharapkan mu

sejujurnya diriku masih mengharapkan mu
