Abstract :

This piece of work indicates and explores the major steps of Strategic Management  Information Systems (SMIS) methodologies. MIS plays a role that is comparable to the role of heart in the human body in an organization . The information represents the blood and MIS represents the heart. The system is the agent of appropriate data acquisition from the different points, processess, and send further to all  destinations where it is required . The system is expected to satisfy the information requirements of an individual, a group of individuals, institutions etc. Due to the strategic role of MIS in an organization, it brings about an impact on the organization’s functions, performance and productivity. The impact of MIS on the functions depends on how it is managed. The objectivees of MIS cannot be achieved without the use of computers technically speaking.  MIS depends mainly on the hardware and software capacity of the computer and its ability to process, retrieve communicate with no serious limitations. Hence the computer is defined as electronic device capable of performing calculaions as well as processing data with great speed and accuracy. The computer can also store information which can easily be retrieved when necessary. According to Brian Fergerson (2012), the SISP methodologies identified for use are selected against the following criteria: (a) methodology authors are documented subject matter experts in the field of SISP, (b) the literature details by research evidence or citations that the SISP methodology is in common use, and (c) there is adequate corroboration of use of the methodology by multiple references. Conclusions describe reasons for the need for SMIS fundamental concepts and main factors for SMIS implementation success .
