Abstract

Mobile Technology (MT) is a small/medium-sized electronics manufacturer that has been very successful and grown rapidly in recent years. Its innovative products are exported to many parts of the world. The firm relies heavily on information technology and has many staff with very sophisticated computer expertise, yet it has no IS department and has only just appointed an IS manager. The firms IS staff are part of an EDP team that provides IS services to all parts of MT. However, the firm is soon to be restructured into nine separate business units. This case focuses on where the firm should place its IS staff following this restructuring. The main alternatives facing management are for either a centralised or decentralised IS department.
