Measuring the effectiveness of information systems (IS) is an issue that has generated debate and research among academics and practitioners. This thesis consolidates the numerous and various approaches to measuring IS effectiveness into six general schools of thought: user satisfaction, system usage, performance/usefulness, productivity, value analysis and cost-benefit analysis. It then presents a model for examining the various linkages that exist among the IS effectiveness measues. These linkages include: user satisfaction and system usage, system usage and performance, performance and productivity, and productivity and cost justification. This research provides a user a summary of the IS effectiveness literature of the past two decades and a consolidated reference for measuring the effectiveness of information systems.
