The introduction of information systems is rarely straightforward or completely successful in both developed and in developing economies. The reasons for the problems associated with the introduction of IT are varied and often unrecognized or misunderstood.
GIS technology is considered an exciting tool in the context of governmental planning systems for natural resource management in developing countries. However, despite rhetoric to the contrary, its impact has been of little value to national processes of development.
The book will appeal as a core text for first and second level undergarduate students taking information systems development modules on a computer science, computer studies, information systems of business studies course. PAUL BEYNON-DAVIES spent several years in the information systems industry before taking up an academic post. He is currently reader in Information Systems at the University of Glamorgan.

The key to successful information systems is good design. But what makes a good design? A number of disciplines weigh in on this topic. However, a usable system could be bland and uninteresting. Employing graphic design principles helps ensure that the system will have visual appeal. Designs also need to fit with the overall brand of the client. Existing colors, fonts, and logos are all a part of the brand for which the system is being created.

Information systems (IS) are formal, sociotechnical, organizational systems designed to collect, process, store, and distribute information. In a sociotechnical perspective, information systems are composed by four components: task, people, structure (or roles), and technology. A computer information system is a system composed of people and computers that processes or interprets information

Given the pervasive nature of information technology and information systems in the modern world, the design and development of IS and IT are critical issues of concern.
One has to plan the information which the management information system will churn out for the different levels of management. Planning for MIS is probably the most important task in the entire development process. The report structures, information flow, storage, information capture and its strategy, network, applications and security are all planned and designed before the system is created. It is the activity which if done wrongly may lead to huge cost and time overruns in the development process. The planning process involves amongst other things the aligning of objectives of an organization with the objectives of the MIS.
