Abstract

Accountants can contribute to corporate strategy by participating in the design and operation of strategic information systems. Executive Information Systems (EIS), computerized systems that support top management in their strategic decision making, are one example. During the development of an EIS, accountants can assist in the identification of a sponsor, in cost/benefit determination for the initial proposal, in the analysis phase which will identify management’s information and processing needs, and in locating information during the design phase. After the system has been implemented, accountants often serve as on-going Knowledge Providers. In addition, accountants, serving as EDP Auditors, can design and review internal controls to safe-guard the sensitive data utilized by EIS and help ensure data accuracy which is so critical to the development of proper corporate strategy.
