3. 3 Management Information Systems (MIS) Management Information Systems is the application of technology to solve business problems. An MIS professional will apply technology to integrate and support business activities such as Accounting, Finance, Marketing, and Management. MIS students learn to analyze, design, develop, and maintain Information Systems to support business activities.

4. 4 MIS in Action In 2005, Wal-Mart attained more than $285 billion in sales – nearly one-tenth of retail sales in the U.S. – in large part because of its RetailLink System, which digitally links its suppliers to every one of Wal-Mart’s 5, 289 stores worldwide. As soon as a customer purchases an item, the supplier monitoring the item knows to ship a replacement to the shelf. Every time a dress shirt is bought at a JCPenny store in the U.S., the record of the sale appears immediately on computers in Hong Kong at its supplier, TAL Apparel Ltd., a large contract manufacturer that produces one in eight dress shirts sold in the U.S. TAL decides how many replacement shirts to make, and in what styles, colors, and sizes, and then sends the shirts to each JCPenny store. JCPenny’s shirt inventory is near zero, as is the cost of storing it.
