Evaluation of management information systems Wilson, Stephen James


An emerging trend in corporate practices today is that of the development of specialized areas within the company which are devoted to studying its management information systems. Stimulated by the impact of the computer and the subsequent blurring of the distinction between specific systems such as those for marketing, finance, etc., this trend has been accompanied by much academic (and corporate) research in an attempt to provide a scientific approach to the analysis and design of these systems. Several such approaches abound in the literature: today, and it would seem that much is still yet to come. The "science" of information systems unfortunately remains scattered throughout the trade and academic journals, papers, and a very few textbooks. This thesis represents an attempt to tie the various areas of research together into a more comprehensive framework, to indicate their validity and limitations, and evaluation of to relate these areas to practical analysis and evaluation of MIS's.
