The concept of Business Informatics was first introduced in Germany. Business Informatics is a combination of Business Studies/ Management with Information Science/Informatics. There are many related fields of Business Informatics viz. Information Systems, IT Management, Organizational Informatics etc. As the terms Informatics and Information Science are synonyms in many contexts, business informatics can also be called with nomenclature as Business Information Science.
