This paper focuses on discussing the design principles and choices of IS in new model. With the architecture of IS has transit to multi-tier Client/Server and Thin-Client environment from 2-tier Client/Server mode, the designers of information system have new opportunity to overcome the defects of old 2-tier Client/Server architecture. Moreover, they also have the new problem of efficiently making use of the benefits which Internet and Web have brought about.
