Abstract: The article studies the methodological issues related to assessing the information systems for the indexation and analysis of information available on the Internet. The comparative analysis of such information systems can be performed only after we define in advance assessment indicators and experts determine their levels of significance (weighted coefficients) in addition to providing access to the necessary data sources. In this research, the latter are represented by a number of Internet resources, which provide characteristics and information about the architecture solutions effective on the market nowadays. As a result of the determined weaknesses and disadvantages of the implemented systems, the last part of the research offers a concept for the development of a similar information system. Based on this, the article outlines the advantages of this concept in comparison with the existing alternative solutions.

Abstract: Digital economy and the rapidly growing use of the Internet have rendered it impossible for a corporate IT infrastructure to perform successfully unless adopting the necessary techniques, technology and procedures for controlling access to resources. Mobile devices have become tremendously popular and they are an indispensable part of people’s everyday life, as well as a preferred option for accessing corporate IT infrastructure resources. Therefore, organisations need to design and implement efficient management solutions, based on in-depth analyses and in line with the specific properties of mobile devices.
This research paper describes in detail corporate IT infrastructure and mobile devices as components of that infrastructure, reviews their use in business environment and presents appropriate tools for exercising control.
