Hello,
I was originally trained as a mechanical engineer, but I've gradually become involved in IT over the last 10 years. This year I've started a Masters degree in Information Systems. Having zero programming experience, I'm finding this part quite tough.
I hope I'm able to be able to contribute here in some small way.
Cheers,
K

It is. Simply put, IT is analysing the existing system, analysing the problem, working out the requirements, and designing a solution.

Fundementally its exactly the same process with designing any product regardless of whether its a consumer good or an information system.

Best of luck to you Kim! Being in this community should really help you out. Forums are a great way to get moral support and get exposed to the issues that people in the industry are thinking about.
