In a recent issue of the INNOVATE magazine, we could read the following definition: "Informatics in an interdisciplinary science that explores the application and effect of IT in business, organizations and society. It is regarded as a social science that focuses on the human aspects in the symbiotic relationship between computers and people. Informatics uses methodologies and research paradigms typical of the humanities, such as qualitative research and anti-positivistic points of departure".
