Organizations an organization to make sure the business

 Organizations achieve and maintain their objectives by
implementing such Information System processes that differ according to their
business objectives and organization’s structure. Information system processes
manages most of the operational activities within the different departments of
an organization to make sure the business objections are met effectively. In
most of the organizations information system is needed to be able to manage
their general everyday processes, IT operations, decision makings for staff,
and to support the strategies for competitive advantage. As many
organizations seek to seek to achieve competitive advantage, reduce costs, and
achieve best productivity and efficiency, the processes they use to manage all
these factors are increasingly large numbers of information become a valuable
factor in their success.
The challenge for many organizations is not only to
find and implement the best possible ways to use information system but also to
find the value and benefits of information systems to manage the business
effectively. It is important that organizations implement such IS processes
that are fit and suitable for the required business for example use of IT staff
effectively and keeping a record to asses for best possible performance against
cost.

       The most important IS process in any
organization is to implement the IT Strategy because it can determine the
organization’s direction and since IT has become such an essential part of any
organization’s internal business functions that it is impossible to implement
any process without it.  IT strategy
should be in line with the organization’s objectives to support the business in achieving its strategic goals. The CIO of any organization assures that a strategy plan is
developed, implemented and regularly updated in such a way that it is in
concurrence with changing business requirement and objectives. In an
organization the strategy to transfer information from management to the IT
management should be very clear and a straight forward system should be in
place to align with these strategies, it should be aligned is such a way that
there should be no lack of compatibility between the organization and IT
strategy otherwise it would if there will be any compatibility issues it would
conflict with the objectives of purposeful strategic goals. This process should
act in accordance with any new competitive changes in the business environment
and should provide for updating the strategy according to these changes to be
compatible with the change in environment. IT
Strategy is definitely not the only element which determines any organizations
success or failure but the ability of its managerial leadership is important as
well, but a logical strategy can achieve exceptional outcome for the
organization whose general level of competence is only average. The most
inspiring managers who are pushed to work with in an inappropriate strategy
will have to utilize their full competence and energy entirely in order to keep
from losing the objectives. IT strategies in any organization can also help in
evaluating the value of an investment which could involve reducing costs,
initiating visibility and control across the IT infrastructure, expanding the
accuracy of information and managing an increasing formation of IT associated
risks. In any organization continuous investments in IT is required to
achieve the required objective but only with the right IS processes and a complete
involvement from all levels of management within business and IT department. IT
strategies many time are not successful due to insufficient management
decisions and support. There are more chance of achieving the objectives
successfully if the IT strategies are well supervised and well controlled which
means this will require the new policies and procedures will require proper
ownership to have a complete control. In many organizations information systems
processes are used and implemented at all levels of the corporate hierarchy but
they are most largely used at operational and lower levels of management which
means there is a less usage towards the upper levels of management where
strategic decisions are based largely on value of objectives. As a result, the
information processed at operational levels allows organized decision making as
the rules and limitations normally lead to a foreseeable outcome. In any
organization strategic planning depends on a very informal decision making
because of the unknown results and ambiguity make results difficult to
anticipate so that’s why information systems, for example business intelligence
systems can imitate the way decisions are made by experts in their respective
fields are needed by top level management to seek help in decision making.
Currently business intelligence system is largely applied in many businesses
for example in retail for user recording to quarry grocery coupons during
checkout, in financial services for claims audit and fraud investigation, in transportation
for managing the fleet, in telecommunications for spotting the reasons for
customer satisfaction or dislikes, also in retail’s online sector for order
shipment and customer support and so on.

    Many Organizations are investing in
information systems which helps to nourish business innovation and the organizations
that have invested in making productive tech based information systems are well
positioned to support business innovation.  Obtaining competitive precedence is very necessary
for any organization and in order to be keep the lead in the competition
organizations have to continually initiate new competitive advantages.
Information systems in any organization are the essential facilitator of
competitive strategies such as alteration, expansion and strategic partnership
and all these can be captured by businesses to develop competitive advantages
using information system processes.
