Abstract

Implementing management information systems is generally a complex process and it becomes more challenging in Africa due to their pertinent social economic and infrastructure problems. Using the three major steps in the process of transformation of data to useful information (input, processing and output), we discuss how the process of gathering data, storage/processing and production of output could hinder the smooth implementation of MIS in an organizations. After detailed analysis of the case of University of Jos, Nigeria, we recommend some measures that could help in implementation of MIS in similar environments.
