Looking at these three words, it’s easy to define Management Information Systems as systems that provide information to management.

That is the simple definition of MIS that generally sums up what a Management Information System is, and what Decision support systems (DSS) on the other hand, are characterized by flexible implement ation in the database in a variety of output formats and flexible coll ection of deployment :// Executive Information Systems (EIS): Upper Management Decision-Making Tools Group Decision Support Systems (GDSS): Improving the Group-Decision-Making Environment enjoyed more interests from academics and the framework for Decision Support Systems was greatly expanded by the end of the decade.
