Applying Information Systems by Polish Enterprises and the Analysis of the Criteria for Adopting a Particular System
Considering marked changes in business, entrepreneurs must have constant access to a lot of information about their business status and business activity. Modern information systems allow them to find methods and tools to achieve this goal. The purpose of this paper is to assess the scope of the application of information systems in Polish companies. ERP, CRM, BI, DSS, MIS and GIS systems were analyzed. Furthermore, the authors of the article examined the importance of a variety of criteria which companies take into account when deciding upon a specific information system. So far, a number of publications have already described the structure, assumptions, functionanlity and application possiblities of information systems. However, the correlation between the company size and the type of information system used should be analysed. Moreover, an in-depth analysis of the criteria for selecting alternative systems is required. Therefore, the authors of the article determine the key aspects of choosing a particular system from a company’s perspective. The research conducted involved a survey addressed to 150 Polish companies of different sizes. It reveals that company size is an essential factor when choosing an individual system. It is also of importance as far as choice criteria are concerned. Developing organizations tend to .choose ‘firstneed’ systems whereas highly – developed companies prefer more comprehensive systems which also offer effective management solutions.
