The paper "Information Systems for Managers" is a perfect example of a finance and accounting article. The implementation of internet technologies and the need to set up traditional businesses is impacting every business around and is seen as the latest stage in the evolution of the ongoing progress. The changes have been so rapid and inevitable that the shift, therefore, must take place as early and quickly as possible in order to keep yourself up with the pace with the competitors around and with the customers who are now more knowledgeable and does know what they want and others have to offer. Information system management has stepped up as the need of today’ s market and nevertheless has the same importance level as any of the field related to business.
So its importance is now is very high as it was never before, and it is a lot better for our company as well because of the current high involvement of the internet and computer technologies around. I, as appointed by my team to lookup and provide critical result-oriented information, I provide you so. Software-Based Solutions: The company needs a very high-class software information system in order to track down the transactional changes taking place all over the globe.
We know that we are progressing towards a global community and therefore must take steps to keep up as so from now on. The real-time information should be acquired anywhere the company’ s headquarters exist so that the persons responsible to keep up the data update are updated as required (O’ Brien, 2003: 47). The real-time solutions must be the key points in the implementation of our software-based information system.
I recommend a software package that provides real-time information. The software package first includes the daily office products for routine works. That will include the MS Office applications to work out best. But if we are looking for a cost-effective solution we might use the Linux operating system as our first choice as it has no license costs. The Open Office Org will replace the MS Office. The real-time software will have to be GUI. It must be user friendly with a good amount of help available by the company which provided it so that we can have a replacement on an urgent basis.
