Criteria for Measuring and Comparing Information systems

Abstract [en]

Whether designing a new system or evaluating an old one it could be useful tobe able to compare the system with another system, intended or existing. One way toevaluate and compare information systems would be through a set of criteriaencompassing factors thought important. For such criteria to be useful they need to beoperational and measurable. This article presents a list of criteria found in literature,combined with a few criteria not found, and a categorization. The criteria are presented ina collected hierarchical model organizing them into the categories of Organization,Individual, Information, Technology and Systemics. It is concluded that the criteria modelmay be useful, for example as a checklist during design, but that it needs to beoperationalized, and be exposed to practice and empirics.

Abstract [en]

All organizations have an information system. An information system is all that which contribute to the distribution within an organization, and without the information system, the organization would not survive. Despite this, work with changing or constructing information systems often end up with suboptimal results. In recent scientific articles, and within profession-specific newspapers, the figures on how many such project end up as failures range between 70 and 80 percent. One source of problems with information systems work is deficiencies of the governance of the change processes. Further, many methods applied to information systems work are in fact software systems method and may thus be suspected to miss important aspects of the information system. In this thesis I have studied approaches for supporting the information systems development process. These approaches have all included trying to find aspects of the information system and trying to measure, simulate or in other ways asses them in order to get an overview of where effort has to be added in the development process.The results of the thesis include recommendations surrounding the simulations of such aspects, as well as a model where the aspects have been formulated into criteria for information system evaluation. The CISE model (Criteria for Information Systems Evaluation) is the main product, and it is available to useas a checklist during information systems work.

Abstract [sv]

Alla organisationer har ett informationssystem. Ett informationsystem är allt det som inom en organisation bidrar till att sprida information, och utaninformationssystemet skull organisationen inte överleva. Trots detta resulterar arbete med att ändra och bygga informationssystem ofta i resultat som är sämre än önskvärda. I senare vetenskapliga artiklar, och inom den professionella pressen, nämns ofta siffror kring 70-80 procent i samband med hur ofta dessa projekt misslyckas.En källa till problem med informationssystemsarbete är brister i styrningen av förändringsprocesserna. Vidare, många metoder som används för informationssystemsarbete är egentligen metoder avsedda för mjukvaruutveckling, och som därmed kan misstänkas missa viktiga aspekter när de tillämpas på informationssystem. I den här avhandlingen har jag studerat angreppssätt för att stödja informationssystemsutvecklingsprocessen. Dessa angreppssätt satsar alla påatt hitta aspekter av informationsystem, och att försöka mäta, simulera eller i andra former uppskatta aspekterna för att få en översikt över var mer kraft behövs i utvecklingsprocessen. Resultaten av avhandlingen inkluderar rekommendationer kring simulering av sådana aspekter, samt en model där aspekterna formulerats som kriterierför utvärdering av informationssystem. CISE-modellen (Criteria for InformationSystems Evaluation) är den främsta produkten av avhandlingen, och den gåratt använda som en checklista under informationssystemsarbete.
