Executive Information System (EIS)/Management Information System (MIS)

An Executive Information System (EIS)/Management Information System (MIS) is an IT-based system that provides the information a company needs to manage itself effectively and efficiently. An EIS/MIS provides users with relevant business information that supports decision making and corporate management. This is actual data about the company tailored for specific user groups and may include advanced reports, charts and figures coupled with historical data and planning figures. The information provided may also serve as a basis for further analyses and forecasts. The EIS/MIS often offers the ability to drill down to detailed information which can be used for further analysis.
