We will focus on how the information system works in a dynamic and turbulent environment and how it helps in the development of strategic, tactical and operation system of organizations. Moreover, we will give a glimpse of different information systems that are used like executive information systems, management information systems, risk management systems, etc. In modern organizations, it is very important that technology works according to the needs of the people and it works on a continuous basis ensuring reliability and effectiveness. Information systems collaborate with the managers and play an important role in implementing proper technology in the organizations (Ralf, 2009). Information systems help in every aspect like creating a business plan, generation of formal reports, maintaining databases, preparing accounts, etc. Decision making is the utmost task of every manager and the information system helps a lot in developing a proper and formal decision-making process (Alter, 2002). Usually, the information flow from top to bottom or from bottom to top and in most of the organizations the information is managed by information management systems. Since the decision-making process is an important practice in every organization and information system provides with the decision makers with information in the form of reports, researches and huge amounts of data is compressed into shorter forms and this helps the managers to take decisions. System generated reports are widely used by all departments and it makes the work easier for managers. The flow of information is used by managers for the decision-making process and the information systems mentor the information and make sure that it will flow smoothly and will not affect the decision-making process. Managers on the other hand higher professionals that can manage the flow of information and they must know how the information is flowing in the organization. Usually the information flows from the top management to the down line workers, but in the certain organization the flow of information is from down line workers to the top management and actually, the flow of information varies from organization to organization. Managers of information system and the computers plan to research and coordinate the computer-related activities of the organization. They coordinate with each other and determine technical and organizational goals. Although this requires a proper and strong understanding of the computer systems and the technology formal reports and detailed information can be stored and developed and can easily be presented to the top management for the purpose of decision making. Information systems are also related to the hardware and the networking side but the core purpose is related to the management side only. The needs of the organization are identified at all levels and utmost importance is given to the operational and strategic perspective.
Competition is also kept in mind and that’s why information systems are equipped with the state of the art technology to ensure that the organization won’t lag behind its competitors.
