Management information systems and organisational performance: A focus on functional and enterprise information systems
William Phiri, Yvonne Chanda, Harrison Banda, Amina Banda
This paper is intended to set the scene for a special issue of Management Information Systems Journal on “Functional Information Systems”. It gives a brief overview of Enterprise Information Systems (EISs) and discusses Transaction Processing Systems (TPS), Marketing Sales Systems, Production and Operation Systems, and Human Resources Management System before concluding. The paper analyses literature collected from different writers across the globe. Based on the results this study concludes that accounting managers’ knowledge and top management support significantly impact on the accounting information systems in an organization and, consequently, accounting information systems also significantly impact the performance management and organizational performance of that organization. By using modern and emerging management information systems, decision makers obtain useful information and use it in decision-making and strategy building to achieve organizational goals and objectives, which should increase the company’s performance.
