Abstract

This paper deals with the role of Information Systems (IS) in organizations of an emerging economy, China. It attempts to foster a deeper understanding of IS in Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs) as the country begins to open its economy and as foreign participation increases. The study analyzes four SOE cases examined in 1995, and makes comparisons with the results from another set of cases examined in 1991. The analysis addresses the areas of IS planning support, IS planning methodology, data resource management and the IS manager’s role. It also explores the area of change toward free market growth from a centrally planned economy. The 1995 cases indicate that IS is not used for strategic advantage as it is in the US although some applications evidence movement in this direction.
