Executive Information Systems (EIS) have dramatically changed management practices. Many companies would not be able to process their information requirements without the help of this kind of technology. This work offers a discussion of the EIS fundamentals: the definition of information that EIS should treat; the trends of its main characteristics (base, interface, integration); and its benefits to the organization. Drawing on survey responses from managers of the 500 biggest Brazilian corporations, we compare the Brazilian and American perceptions of EIS expected and realized benefits. The results point the need of more effective cost/benefit analysis.
