Different opinions about the relationships between MIS and AIS are explained in this article.
But before explaining any kind of relationships, it
is necessary to specify MIS and AIS definitions and
set the range of each system. As it is explained, there
are two completely different definitions about MIS.
One of them is overall and involves all the organization and information systems in it and another one
is a part of organization. Therefore, it can be said
that if MIS involves all the organization, then AIS
is a sub-system of MIS and the main goal of MIS
is effective use of organization’s information systems. But, if MIS is a system which is developed to
provide information for managers, firstthe common
features and differences between them should be
listed and then determined the relationship between them. It is clear to also note that they both consists of computers and humans, sub-system, aid information for decision making.
