This paper will examine the advantages and disadvantages of belonging to the ‘information society’. In order to do this, it will first define the term ‘information society’ and then will provide specific examples of advantages and disadvantages that have accrued to these societies. Finally, this essay will briefly evaluate the short-term future of the information society as it relates to libraries and information sources. Belonging to a society rich not only in information, but also (and more importantly) in the means to disseminate this information, has delivered extremely powerful benefits for the developed world in the late-20th and early-21st centuries, and holds a great deal of promise for the rest of the world as the information society goes global. For the purposes of this essay, the ‘information society’ will be taken to mean any society (or all taken in the aggregate) whose economic and cultural drivers are all information based.
Information is obtained by data, knowledge and business intelligence. Without information, people cannot make decision through their business or life. Basically, without information we can say something not true and can’t make decisions. Technology would not work without obtaining information.

For instance the problem of information failure leads to underproduction of merit goods and over production of demerit goods. These issues can be resolved through market, legal and regulatory remedies. For instance, once information is known to people this makes it difficult to charge users enough to cover the costs of production and causes the private firms to produce too little. 4) Income Inequality The widening gap between rich and poor people leads to inequitable market distribution of goods and services. Moreover resources are more diverted to high income consumers leading to misallocation of resources.
There may be instances of imperfect information that may cause market failure as persons are not able to fully access the slight advantage of the good. In the process of the market demand curve being developed by tabulating all individual demand curves, it is not possible for optimal market equilibrium to be derived. Firms often lack the knowledge of market opportunities and costs, on the supply side and may often put together an improper reasoning of market consumer demand or decline to act swiftly to demand shifts due to miscalculations in judgment. Therefore, this results in market

Information refers to a set of raw materials or a list of facts whereas knowledge refers to something gained through the combination of information, experiences and analysis (Lurie, 2012). The information was collected at first and learned as a knowledge through own understanding before applying it in the project task. The most important aspect identified in doing the project task that differ the knowledge from information is understanding. Since information can be obtained without requiring understanding, knowledge is differ from it as learning and understanding are essential in gaining knowledge. Even though the information obtained were all the same, the understanding of each individual is dissimilar and thus each individual gain different level of knowledge.
This study is anchored on the theory of Attawel’s (2004) that companies tend to delay technology adoption due to the lack of knowledge about how to implement and operate AIS. Similarly, Ismail and King (2007) noted the lack of managers understanding of strategic accounting information inhibits SME’s from aligning their AIS capacity with AIS requirements. Conceptual Framework This study aims to determine the factors for non-adoption of computerized accounting by merchandising SMEs in Davao City and their profile. Figure 1 shows the moderating and main variable Figure 1.0 Conceptual Framework of the Study Graham and Nikkinen (2012) stated that firm size refers to total assets of owners and management to finance the company, company’s age or its number of years affects technological innovation. The main variable is the response of non-adapters of Accounting Information System among Small-Medium Enterprises.
