McKinney & Kroenke, Processes, Systems, and Information: An Introduction to MIS | PearsonManagement information systems employ information technology to collect and communicate all the information a company or institution uses to operate. Each department or function of an organization produces its own operational and financial data and as a result has its own information system to keep track of it all. There are as many types of management information systems as there are departments or functions in an organization, but there are a few specific systems that almost every organization or institution needs for the whole entity to operate smoothly. A management reporting system is a database designed to report on the finances and operations of all levels of management in an organization. A company's management reporting system is commonly used by middle managers to generate regular reports comparing current and past financial performance to determine financial growth and to track how the middle managers themselves are performing. Upper management uses the data generated by the reporting system to compare the company's current financial position and its efficiency of operations against its predetermined goals for the company.

The 5 Components of an Information System
Management information system MIS refers to a large infrastructure used by a business or corporation, whereas information technology IT is one component of that infrastructure that is used for collecting and transmitting data. A management information system helps a business make decisions and coordinate and analyze information. Information Technology supports and facilitates the employment of that system. For example, IT could be a particular interface that helps users input data into a corporate MIS operation. However, that isn't to say that the scope of IT is narrow. The particular goals of a particular IT application can fit neatly into a larger MIS framework; however, the reverse is not necessarily true. In terms of business decision-making, an information system IS is a set of data, computing devices and management methods that support routine company operations.

Information management IM concerns a cycle of organizational activity: the acquisition of information from one or more sources, the custodianship and the distribution of that information to those who need it, and its ultimate disposition through archiving or deletion. This cycle of organisational involvement with information involves a variety of stakeholders , including those who are responsible for assuring the quality , accessibility and utility of acquired information; those who are responsible for its safe storage and disposal ; and those who need it for decision making. Stakeholders might have rights to originate, change, distribute or delete information according to organisational information management policies. Information management embraces all the generic concepts of management, including the planning , organizing , structuring, processing , controlling , evaluation and reporting of information activities, all of which is needed in order to meet the needs of those with organisational roles or functions that depend on information. These generic concepts allow the information to be presented to the audience or the correct group of people. After individuals are able to put that information to use, it then gains more value.
