The rapid evolution in the role that information systems technology plays at all levels of the food industry was the focus of debate in a series of high-level executive interviews conducted by SN shortly before the annual FMI Information Systems conference here this week. Sharing their views on the MIS state of the industry today, and where it is headed in the future, are:
Patrick Steele -- senior VP, information systems and technology, Albertson's, Boise, Idaho
"Information systems have to be tied in with bottom-line objectives."
Peter Rolandelli -- corporate VP of MIS, A&P, Montvale, N.J.
"All that's needed to affect our business greatly is for 10% of what we do to move to home shopping."
David Hayes -- director, information services, Associated Grocers of New England, Manchester, N.H.
