Methodologically the research is classified as a descriptive one, with a qualitative analysis approach of the data collected through non-participant observation of extranets and intranets, their organizations, focusing on flows and informational connections in the view of the user. The construction of data collection instruments considered four variables common to the Management Information Systems. In order to identify information flows at different levels of management systems, it was applied the Infomapping technique, aimed at convergence on a common element. The analyses were based on the interrelation of these variables, in the dynamics of information flows, identifying facilitators and connection breaks of the information flow and the dimensionality of the information. The essay results indicate an order of information flows, which make up the management systems, as well as the identification information as a common element connecting the systems involved, integrating and articulating in a multidimensional way, the different levels of an information system management.
