A STUDY OF THE USE OF COMPUTER IN MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM IN FIRST BANK PLC, ENUGU
The main aim of this project work is to find out the study of the use of computer management information system in First Bank Plc, Enugu.
In the preliminary chapter, effects were made by the researcher to identify some of the use of computer in management international system which were largely treated in chapter two.
The researcher wades in to find out how for the management information system facilitated the information flow in first Bank Plc, Enugu.
In chapter two, the view the various writer scholars was educationists that were relative to the topic were started and reviewed.
Question item were used to collect information for the respondents which were analysis by simple percentage.
In chapter three, out of 1q00 were selected and supervised, only 80 returned their question out of the questionnaire distributed.
Also instrument used for data collection, method of data analysis and the sample technique al contained in this chapter.
Chapter four deals with data analysis and interpretative of results which as analysed by simple percentage.
Finally in chapter fine, finding, conclusive recommendation and the references where included

Computer has become a very powerful tool in the business world today because of its ability to store, process and disseminate large amount of information accurately, efficiently and effectively for quick decision.
According to Ani (200:5A), computer can be defined as an electronic tool capable of accepting data, interpreting data, performing ordered operation on data and reporting on the outcome of these operation. It is therefore a tool managers can use to assist them in the complicated and time consuming task of generating information.
The computer took many centuries to come to the age of four generation, reckoning from time, serious efforts began towards simplifying mathematical computations Quite a few people were involved in the development of the computer and several of the scientists who made those useful contributions did not really aim at developing a computer but their inventions turned out to be an important step towards the development of computer
According to Alan Trunning (1937) showed that a computer can be built with a set of simple instruction while any problem having a logical solution can be reduced to a solution based upon a small set of simple instruction. A few years later, John Von Neuman (1946) set out a summary of the design requirement far a modern computer as follows:-
1. The processing of data instructions which include the use of modification of programs.
2. Binary codes is used to represent data and instruction in a way that makes no distinction of the two and still allow them the storage space in the computer.
Based on those contributions and innovations of these scientists and others, the modern computer came to be. IT underwent series of improvement which gave rise to farth computer generation, before we have today, MODERN COMPUTER.
However, the introduction of this general purpose device and machine and simple programming languages greatly increased the computer utility especially in management information system (MIS) which basically deals on how information is obtained, retrieved and utilized. Computers are now indispensable tools in any business activities because electronic data processing is growing and meeting the expected need of people’s speed, accuracy and efficiency in handling of data and security. IT also extended to other areas such as marketing, accounting, inventory management and production process.
According to Lutter Quick (1954) The concept of management information system (MIS) was formulated by Lutter Quick whole delivering a speech in October, 1960 at Ihe Rochester Institute of Technology, their are then it become obvious and necessary that information should play a vital role in the solution of business and management problems in a price-meal fashion thereby focusing almost entirely on the mechanization of all office chores.
Basically, Management Information System attempt to provide managers at all levels with the information they need to guide their enterprises. It provides an organization with flexible integrated tool for the planning and control function of their endeavours, with the ability to planned and unplanned information requirement at all management levels.
According to Onuigbo (1990:487) Management information System (MIS) is he formal processing and dispersing of information in internal and external within the organization in an effective and efficient manner.
Primarily, the management information system (MIS) is set up of the purpose of providing, planning and controlling information to all levels of management to effect appropriate decision making. Thus, it does this by gathering data, inputting and processing them into information and further dissemination these items of information, we can therefore, say that management information system can be sub-divided into functional information system such as marketing information system, Ihe financial information system and Ihe personnel information system and so on depending on the type of organization.
The management information system provides managements with varying information depending on the level, thereby making increased in the efficiency of the organization through better management decisions.
However, owing to the fact that organizations have grown in sizes, information flow has become so voluminous that face to face communication and even writing memoranda can no longer effect adequate communication or effective processing of data. The management information system of these organizations have in recent times fond it difficult to meet with The increasing demand being made on information as a result, The manual means o operation is Jam-packet with scored of data to be processed. Hence delay and inaccuracies in data collection and analysis. Delay often makes decision making to be inaccurate. Also, there is problem of misappropriation of important document of files or even cases of stolen files.
