STUDY OF THE USE OF COMPUTER IN MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.0   BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Computer has become a very powerful tool in the business world today because of its ability to store, process and disseminate large amount of information accurately, efficiently and effectively for quick decision. According to Ani (2000), computer can be defined as an electronic tool capable of accepting data, interpreting data, performing ordered operation on data and reporting on the outcome of these operation. It is therefore a tool managers can use to assist them in the complicated and time consuming task of generating information.

The computer took many centuries to come to the age of four generation, reckoning from time, serious efforts began towards simplifying mathematical computations Quite a few people were involved in the development of the computer and several of the scientists who made those useful contributions did not really aim at developing a computer but their inventions turned out to be an important step towards the development of computer. According to Alan Trunning (1937) showed that a computer can be built with a set of simple instruction while any problem having a logical solution can be reduced to a solution based upon a small set of simple instruction. A few years later, John Von Neuman (1946) set out a summary of the design requirement far a modern computer as follows:

1. The processing of data instructions which include the use of modification of programs.

2. Binary codes is used to represent data and instruction in a way that makes no distinction of the two and still allow them the storage space in the computer.

Based on those contributions and innovations of these scientists and others, the modern computer came to be. IT underwent series of improvement which gave rise to farth computer generation, before we have today, modern computer. However, the introduction of this general purpose device and machine and simple programming languages greatly increased the computer utility especially in management information system (MIS) which basically deals on how information is obtained, retrieved and utilized. Computers are now indispensable tools in any business activities because electronic data processing is growing and meeting the expected need of people’s speed, accuracy and efficiency in handling of data and security. IT also extended to other areas such as marketing, accounting, inventory management and production process.

According to Lutter Quick (1954) The concept of management information system (MIS) was formulated by Lutter Quick whole delivering a speech in October, 1960 at Ihe Rochester Institute of Technology, their are then it become obvious and necessary that information should play a vital role in the solution of business and management problems in a price-meal fashion thereby focusing almost entirely on the mechanization of all office chores. Basically, Management Information System attempt to provide managers at all levels with the information they need to guide their enterprises. It provides an organization with flexible integrated tool for the planning and control function of their endeavours, with the ability to planned and unplanned information requirement at all management levels.

According to Onuigbo (1990:487) Management information System (MIS) is he formal processing and dispersing of information in internal and external within the organization in an effective and efficient manner. Primarily, the management information system (MIS) is set up of the purpose of providing, planning and controlling information to all levels of management to effect appropriate decision making. Thus, it does this by gathering data, inputting and processing them into information and further dissemination these items of information, we can therefore, say that management information system can be sub-divided into functional information system such as marketing information system, Ihe financial information system and Ihe personnel information system and so on depending on the type of organization.

The management information system provides managements with varying information depending on the level, thereby making increased in the efficiency of the organization through better management decisions. However, owing to the fact that organizations have grown in sizes, information flow has become so voluminous that face to face communication and even writing memoranda can no longer effect adequate communication or effective processing of data. The management information system of these organizations have in recent times fond it difficult to meet with The increasing demand being made on information as a result, The manual means o operation is Jam-packet with scored of data to be processed. Hence delay and inaccuracies in data collection and analysis. Delay often makes decision making to be inaccurate. Also, there is problem of misappropriation of important document of files or even cases of stolen files.

HISTORY OF FIRST BANK AND ITS MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM

First Bank of Nigeria Plc, was founded in 1894 by a shipping magnate form Liverpool, Sir Alfred Jones, the Bank commenced as a small operation in the office of Elder Dempster and Company in Lagos.

Also, Ihe Bank’s market capitalization stood at N66.05 billion i.e N25.00k per share as at 31st March 2003. In 1957, it changed its name from Bank of British West African to Bank of West Africa. In 1969, Ihe Bank was incorporated locally as the standard Bank of Nigeria limited in line with the companies Decree of 1968.

The Bank has continued to be a leader in financing loan term development of the economy which was demonstrated. In 1947 when the first long term loan was advanced to Ihe then colonial Government. To demonstrate its commitment to its customers and Ihe development of the Nigerian economy, Ihe bank has since broadened its loan and credit port-floes the various sectors of the economy.
