The development of science and technology has brought a wealth of information resources to enterprises. The ability of enterprises to acquire, process and apply such information is called “enterprise information capability”, and it has become an important evaluation standard for enterprises which are market-oriented. At present, the research achievements of enterprise information capability evaluation and enterprise information system construction evaluation mainly include the connotation of enterprise information capability, how to improve enterprise information capability construction and how to construct enterprise information system, etc. This paper attempts to use the fuzzy inference system to evaluate the enterprise information capability, and validates the constructed fuzzy inference system through simulation data. Finally, it obtains a good evaluation result. The results show that the higher the achievement rate of each indicator, the higher the score calculated by the fuzzy inference system, and the stronger the information capability of the enterprise. At the same time, the fuzzy inference system method can be used for the evaluation of enterprise information capabilities.
