Chapter 1: Introduction

In management information system —as opposed to concepts such as Management information technology (MIT) or information and communication technology (ICT)—is a fairly old concept that appeared as the first commercial applications of the computer were developed at the dawn of the general systems theory era. According to Davis and Olson, a management information system, as the term is generally understood, is “an integrated, user machine system for providing information to support operations, management, and decision-making functions in an organization or State of any country. The system utilizes computer hardware and software; manual procedures; models for analysis planning, control, and decision-making; and a database.” The U.K. Academy of Information Systems (UKAIS) defines information systems as “the means by which people and organizations, utilizing technology, gather, process, store, use and disseminate information.”

There is no clear consensus on the definition of the term MIS. This confusing situation is rooted in the rapid growth of the MIS field (from the data-processing era, powered by early mainframes, to the strategic information system era powered by the Internet and the Web), and in the multiple points of view adopted by researchers and writers in management, communications, decision making, political science, sociology, economics, and strategy. As a result, there is an alternative terminology for information systems and management information systems, which includes expressions such as 'information and communication system,' “information and decision system,” “organizational information system,” and 'strategic information system' to refer to a computer-based information processing system.
