Even though MIS has many benefits it has its limitations. MIS is sometimes considered a solution for every bane within an organization. While MIS may solve some critical problems but it is not a solution to all problems of an organization. The limitations of MIS may be stated as,
- The MIS is as good as its design-MIS if designed in an improper manner does not serve the management and hence is of little relevance.
- The MIS is as good as its users-if the users do not know how to leverage the information available from MIS then MIS is of little use.
- The MIS is no good if the basic data is obsolete and outdated (for example, MIS will only facilitate garbage with information and in about garbage-out-process).
