This week’s article was quite interesting. The key factor was to develop an understanding of Executive Information Systems. According to the article, executive information system is a computer based to that is supposed to assist management in the management activities and decision making process.
EIS executive managers use when making major decisions – According to the article, these can vary in sophistication. However, the basic result is the same which is assisting in the decision making process. This tool has a focus on the daily operations of the organization as well as information on competitors. The old approach was more required computer base interface which allowed for users to burrow down into the data. The EIS tool if focused on decision making and problem solving. It allows executive management to analyze and locate trends and locate key variables.

The tool allows upper-level executives to create more informed planning to provide to management under them to be more successful. The variables and data allow from more informed planning and strategies to reach organizational goals by lower levels of management. The process allows for information to be retrieved more times and distributed to lower level management.

The reading of “Executive Information Systems: Their Impact on Executive Decision Making”, I found that there were two tools use the “EIS and the DSS”. The decision making process is one of the most vital roles of an executive. The use of dependable information sources is the key component of administrative decision-making. References of information can be oral, written, or computer-based. The computer-based knowledge are found to be the least studied in the context of executive decision making since executives tend to use other managers and their own premonition. as their primary information informant. Although, the emergence of the computer-based that are right for the use by decision-makers enables an examination of how the executive use this type of information system affects the executives’ “decision-making process. Systems hereafter, mention to as executive information systems (EIS) are computer-based information systems that are designed to allow a senior leader access to information relevant to his or her management ventures. The new era of philosophy of how technology (computers) could be helpful to managerial decision-making surfaced under the name “DSS” in 1970. On today, the DSS have become securely established in the mainstream of IS operation and application. We find on today that decisions are made throughout the countries and the results are to find a communication that works effective, fast, and efficiently.
In context with the article rapid decision-making has become more important as competitive situations. (Eisenhardt) learned that the most successful firms of those studied made strategic decisions rapidly. She recognized that confidence and anxiety plays as the key components in the speed process. (El Sawy) suggests that ” to go complete effectively in today’s’ competitive world: time-compressed information exhaustive environment, fast-comeback is becoming a critical strategic potential.
