    Abstract

    Every aspect of management in the modern age relies heavily on information to thrive. Nothing moves without information and it is generally believed that information is power and accuracy. Nowadays management without information system is obsolete and inefficient. A management information system (MIS) is a system that provides information needed to manage organizations effectively. Management information systems are distinct from regular information systems in that they are used to analyze other information systems applied in operational activities in the organization. Academically, the term is commonly used to refer to the group of information management methods tied to the automation or support of human decision making, e.g. Decision Support Systems, Expert systems, and Executive information systems This paper aims to identify the importance of MIS and its main role in economic development of Islamic countries and the benefit of using the concept of MIS and its applications by the governments of these countries to support their internal management activities and decision making. The study will conduct a brief overview on the evolution of MIS and its main definitions and activates its main role for organizations, and then trying to identify the main obstacles that prevent from using MIS widely in Islamic countries.
