At the very core of Marketing Information Systems (MkIS) design is the identification of the marketing information needs of decision-makers. Information needs can be defined as the user specifications of information characteristics involved in information seeking, and refer to those qualities of information perceived by managers to be 'useful' to facilitate their decision-making.

The results, based on interviews with 20 senior marketing executives suggest that this construct may be multidimensional and associated with three different types of uncertainty conditions.
