Informatics has a very important role in organisations and an understanding of how informatics can help an organisation achieve goals is vital.

As this initial report will form the foundation of the second assignment report in which you are asked to analyse a case study of your own choosing, you may use the same organisation for the second assignment.
This is an individual assessment and needs to be submitted electronically through SafeAssign.
