Architectural design of sustainable information systems
The theory of the information society considers the information and media as the primary source of social development. At present the use of the latest achievements in the field of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) in economy and management, including the contemporary methods and tools of computer modelling is one of the key factors in improving organizational performance and increasing its competitiveness. This paper focuses on the various modelling methods and techniques that are employed in the design of management information systems (MIS) architecture. Its goal is to evaluate the role of modelling for spatiotemporal analysis of marketing information system in the context of spatial economics paradigm development. Interdisciplinarity of spatial marketing researches consists not only in expanding the subject of research (joint study of the spaces of different types), but in the synthesis of notions, concepts and methodologies of the social, humanitarian, sociological and engineering sciences, modelling and prediction of interaction and mutual influence of different kinds spaces, a generalization of the theoretical results and creating of the interdisciplinary databases.The paper also considers the main features of soft computing (neural network and fuzzy logic) and discusses its implementation for design of sustainable adaptive architecture of spatial information system. It does so from a research base that draws from theoretical underpinnings as well as international and domestic industry practices.
