Strategic information systems (SIS) are a reality in the United States and other advanced nations. They are being developed and used in many organizations to provide them with a competitive advantage. We contend that such systems would have significant value for developing countries as well. This article extends the SIS concept to developing countries. Two models are presented: a model for strategic information systems for competitive advantage in developing countries, and a model for strategic information systems for economic development (SISED). The SISED model, while primarily targeted for developing nations, would also be applicable to advanced and developed nations. The article concludes with a discussion of desired preconditions for SIS development. © 1990.
