Management Information Systems for Colleges and Universities.
Schroeder, Roger G.
A management information system (MIS) is embedded in the management and operating system of the organization. An MIS exists to provide information for management and operating purposes. The MIS must meet the information needs of management and operating users. The MIS consists of two components--a processor and a data base. Packaged systems have gained a strong foothold, but users are often not sure enough of their needs to take control of their MIS's and many are not "systems oriented." To get help in systems design and interpretation of information often raises organizational and resource issues that are not easily resolved. Thus, users will need to make a concerted effort to move MIS forward. (Author/KE)
