Information systems serve as an inevitable part of any business or organization today. A good information system can help regulate and automate internal processes in any organization, ensuring efficiency and better quality. It can further help collate feedback and carry out complex analysis of the market as well as customer feedback, which in turn can be used to plan or modify business strategies for the benefit of the organization.
Research a medium-size company that has about 1,000–10,000 employees and revenue generation of above $20 million, and write a 2- to 3-page report on how an MIS helps to give the company a competitive edge in their market. Discuss how the Internet allows better communication and exposure for business in this company. In addition, include in the report answers to the following questions:
- Why was the particular company chosen?
- How is the company different from its competitors?
- What are the strengths of the company? Its weaknesses? Its opportunities?
Companies may be chosen from the textbook, found on the Internet, or may be a local company you work for or are familiar with. Good company choices might include a college, an electronic chain store, a law firm, etc.
