We develop MIS (Management information systems) that provide all round information involving three primary resources: people, technology, and information. Development of Management information systems progress in six stages: Initial Investigation; Systems Analysis; Systems Design; Systems Development; Systems Implementation; Systems Operation and Maintenance.

 

What is MIS?

MIS Management information systems are developed for the business entities in order to provide the executives with information about sales, inventories, and other data that would help in managing the enterprise. A MIS or management information system continuously gathers relevant data, both from inside and outside an organization. The data gathered is then processed, integrated, and stored in a centralized database where it is constantly updated and made available to all who have the authority to access it, in a form that suits their purpose.

MIS also offer businesses a number of advantages

By providing a unique product or service to meet the needs of customers, a company can raise the cost of market entry for potential competitors and thus gain a competitive advantage.

MIS involves forging electronic linkages to customers and suppliers. This can help companies to lock in business and increase switching costs.

MIS changes the overall basis of competition in an industry characterized by price wars. A business with a new means of processing customer data may be able to create unique product features that change the basis of competition.

 

Who need MIS?

Business entities with country-wide branches

Multi-national commercial corporations

International Non-governmental Organizations (iNGOs)

 

MIS Management information systems developed for the above mentioned entities provide their executives and coordinators at the head quarters or central camp with continuously updated information of completed and on-going commerce, business development and projects in all branches or stations. MIS not only provides management information but also support automation and human decision making.

 

Is processing capabilities of Micro computers good enough for MIS?

Yes. Modern microcomputers are so powerful that most MIS applications can be run using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) microcomputers (e.g., those using the Microsoft Windows operating system). Major categories of software involved in a microcomputer-based MIS system are database software, spreadsheet/presentation graphics, and statistical analysis packages. Networking of microcomputers could be a handy option, depending upon the system size and number and location of users, networking may be a useful option.

Should Larger MIS Management information systems exceed the processing capabilities of microcomputer-based systems, a larger computer (e.g., minicomputer-based) systems would be required.

MIS’s assistance in long range plans and decision making.

The organized approach to the study of the information serves the organization’s management at every level in making operational, tactical, and strategic decisions.

The long range plans, providing reports based upon performance analysis in areas critical to those plans, with feedback loops that allow for enhancement of every aspect of the enterprise, including recruitment and training regimens.

MIS not only indicate how things are going, but why and where performance is failing to meet the plan. These reports include near-real-time performance of cost centers and projects with detail sufficient for individual accountability.

Once socio-economic data are incorporated, MIS can become even more powerful tools for planning and decision-making.
