Article Preview

Nowadays the knowledge of information systems and their effective application during business operations is an essential requirement for the survival of enterprises. This factor belongs to the most significant economic challenges of the XXI. century. The role of information systems is very complex, having separate modules for performing numerous business functions. [4,15] The economic development level of a country can be seen as a reliable reference to the degree of its IT development in general or to the number of information systems applied by the enterprises operating there. Starting from this assumption, the present paper deals with the differences observed in the application of information systems among German and Hungarian enterprises.
