MetadataShow full item record
The success of organizational information systems (IS) depends largely upon effective planning for the information systems. A comprehensive IS plan should provide a coordinated approach to strategic business goals, organizational information requirements and an overall measure of performance. Acknowledging the importance of comprehensive planning in the process of managing the organization's information resource, a collection of methodologies has been accumulated, to serve in carrying out the IS planning effort. However, a managerial problem that often arises is how to make the best use of current planning methodologies. The purpose of this thesis is to survey the existing methodologies, establish a framework for analyzing the IS planning methodologies, and examine some of their advantages and limitations.
