Information systems are used in virtually every profession. Sales representatives use information systems to advertise products, communicate with customers, and analyze sales trends. Managers use them to make multimillion-dollar decisions, such as whether to build a manufacturing plant or research a cancer drug. Corporate lawyers use them to develop contracts and other legal documents. Automobile manufacturers use them to develop, test, and manufacture new cars. From a small music store to huge multinational corporations, organizations of all sizes could not survive without information systems to perform accounting and finance operations.

The MIS professional is involved in the identification, creation, and maintenance of the above information systems. He/she operates as an internal consultant to all functional areas of the organization, being knowledgeable about their strategic and operational needs as well as competent in bringing the power of information technology to support these needs.
