e rapid development of information technology has inuenced informatics as an important
role in business development and management. Manifestations of computerization in the
current economy mostly reect the application of information systems for planning and strategic
dierent analysis, especially when making long-term decisions. ese systems consist of several
information systems and management control systems for decision support. e construction of
these systems was originally a requirement for the strategic planning of top managers (the highest
level of leadership) having as a primary goal the easier access to important information, especially
those that were classied as critical for success in business. Expert systems for example oered
the possibility of linking information technology with other telecommunication channels which
makes them possible to identify many problems.
In this context, this paper will focus on presenting the great importance of information technology
as a powerful tool to manage business problems precisely because information systems provide
exceptional business value. Information Technology examines the reasons for the problems and
oers solutions to manage and reduce them.
Keywords: Information technology, management, business, decisions, planning.
