ABSTRACT:This researcher has investigated the current management support systems (MIS, DSS and ESS) to understand its limitations for providing real time information to managers in the new global economy. This writer has also examined current software applications and hardware components for their relevance in emerging management support systems. Environmental forces of change and the creative destructive cycle have forced many organizations to reevaluate their current management support systems for their effectiveness.
