Strategies for management use and system survival for marketing information systems

Date of publication: June 15, 1977


This paper describes the evolution from a longitudinal consumer panel to the planned development of an integrated Marketing Management Information System. AT&T's ten years experience with centrally developed marketing information systems is reviewed. The rationale for development, problems of implementation and analysis and the lack of effective utilisation are explored. Improvements are made and increased management usage is stimulated. Finally, the five-year plan for future development building upon this past experience is presented.
