Information systems typically include ICT components that help to control the performance of business processes. In this project, “Travel Nepal: An Information System for Promoting e-Tourism in Nepal”, a metadata is created by collecting information which is then managed, organized, and disseminated in accordance to different interests, using technologies like mobile application and web API.
