Introduction

Accounting Information Systems are the need of the time. Every organization today is either moving towards the information system based accounting, or improving the existing information system. This requires that the organization and their corporate leaders have to assess the available information systems. But the number of rolling back on information systems and inefficient operations suggest that there is some fault in the assessment of the information system. The report studies it in terms of the assumptions made by the corporate leaders in relation to accounting information systems and information. It is succeeded by the negative impacts these assumptions have on business operations. Also the ways through which organizational performance can be improved through business systems has been provided, followed by analysis of the level of security required to ensure integrity of information within automated business systems. The report ends with a conclusion drawn on the issues considered.

How corporate leaders may make improper assumptions and related information?

Rom and Rohde (2007) highlight that, the major improper assumption that the corporate leader make is about the availability of appropriate information. This means that the leaders take a basic level review, which doesn’t identifies the level of information that would be provided by the accounting information system they are considering. If it be considered, the main purpose that an entity implement an accounting information system is availability of correct and requisite information. And when the chosen accounting information system doesn’t provides the requisite information, the main purpose itself is affected.
