Information is power and is considered worthy in developing and progressing several things. Computer and Information System give a healthy, sophisticated, and impactful information infrastructure—all together. Previously, Information Science was known as a manual subject (non-technical) for handling information activities and became known as Informatics in many countries. The development of the IT and Computing field is emerging and its applications in Information Science and further related to other subjects and areas lead some of the subject and nomenclature viz. Health Informatics, Bio-Informatics, Geo-Informatics, Chemical Informatics, Business Informatics, etc. These may be called domain-based Informatics and here, Business Informatics is simply a combination of Business Studies (or allied Management) with Information Science and Technology or Informatics. Business Informatics is the application of IT and Computing in industries, organizations, and other emerging corporate worlds. Industries and modern organizations are looking towards advanced and modern intelligent information solutions with proper and sophisticated systems; therefore, organizations can get timely benefits of ICT solutions in industries and companies. This chapter is especially on Business Informatics, about the emergence of the latest technologies for promoting and advancing business and corporate sectors.
