    An information system is the significant component of decision making progress. It is the important tool for all levels of management to take effective decision making process. Information System can be defined as the software that makes use of the combination of people, procedure, hardware, data, network and software to analyze and gather digital information (Alkhaffaf, 2012). The understanding of the relationship between the decision-making process and information system (IS) helps the decision makers to take an effective decision.

A successful organization heavily depends upon the information system to enhance the efficiency of management with a view to derive benefits and achieve pre-determined goals. In order to do this, almost every organisation has Management Information System (MIS) to carry out its effective decision making procedures. MIS consists of computers, database, people, interactive query facilities and procedure, the combination of all these helps to get accurate information, which is the most important element of successful decision activity. It contributes to solve problems of both structured and unstructured environments. In addition to MIS, the organisation also implements various information systems like Decision Support System (DSS), Transaction Processing System (TPS) and Office Information Systems (OIS).
    Types of Information System:
    There are different kinds of the information system that an organization can usually employ to take the right and effective decision. According to the hierarchy in the organization, the information system can be classified into four types that are Executive Information Systems (EIS) which is used to get tactical knowledge required by executives. Another is Decision Support Systems (DSS) which provides the explicit knowledge required by senior managers that are working in the organisation. In addition to that, Management Information Systems (MIS) and Office Support Systems (OSS) help to provide information to middle-level managers. Transaction Support Systems is used to provide basic data to workers and lower level of managers.
