the meaning of computer-based information system

A computer-based information system keeps all data on a server or hard disk, as compared to papers and file cabinets. It is possible to have a paperless office this way, unless a government agency demands a paper backup.


The advantage of a computer-based information system is that it allows one to index and search by different parameters, pass information to another locale instantaneously, and back up the data for safety reasons.
