Abstract

Nowadays many acronyms generally represent some high information technology/management fashionable concepts. The reality that lies behind is conducted by the vendor/consultant community in the attempts to sell information technology or to convince about some information technology technical advances. Apparently this is also the case of Management Information Systems becoming Executive Information Systems/Decision Support Systems and then Business Intelligence and Enterprise Decision Management. But the truth comes after considering many other reasons and liaisons between terms and their meaning, even their history.

Keywords: Management Information Systems (MIS), Decision Support Systems (DSS), Executive Information Systems (EIS), Business Intelligence (BI), Enterprise Decision Management (EDM)

JEL Classification: O33
