An assessment model for web-based information system effectiveness

Tokdemir, Gül
Information System (IS) effectiveness assessment is an important issue for the organizations as IS have become critical for their survival. With the incorporation of Internet technologies into the business environment, it is now more difficult to measure IS effectiveness, because Internet provides a borderless, non-stop, flexible communication medium. Assessing the effectiveness of web-based information systems (WIS) is vital for survival and competitive advantage which is a complicated subject since there are several interacting factors to consider. In the literature there are several methods proposed for IS assessment. However, those studies have been far from providing a broad, comprehensive evaluation framework for any type of web-based IS independent of its domain. In this study, a generic WIS effectiveness assessment framework is proposed. The framework is applied in case studies consisting of four organizations in e-commerce and e-banking domains.


A geographic information systems tool development for geostatistical analysis of endangered endemic vascular plants of Turkey
Demirci, Barbaros; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Information Systems (2005)
Modern information systems strive to provide effective use of resources. Supplied with analysis tools, geographical information systems (GIS) can serve its stakeholders with minimal requirements. In this study, GIS capabilities were employed for Turkish Flora. Data related with the threatened plants that are indigenous to Turkey were gathered from the relevant literature and reshaped into a dataset in which spatial locations were represented in a geographically referenced format. Afterwards, this output was...
A Conceptual Model for a Metric Based Framework for the Monitoring of Information Security Tasks’ Efficiency
Sönmez, Ferda Özdemir (Elsevier BV; 2019)
Information Security Governance Systems are not adequate to measure the effectiveness and efficiency of security tasks for the enterprises. Although some of the systems offer ways for measurement, they still need the definition of measurement objectives and metrics. This study proposes a conceptual framework mode which has human and tool/process related metrics. This system also allows the collection of evidence data for security-related tasks and ways to motivate the security staff to provide a more produc...
A Qualitative model of the critical success factors for the effectiveness of information systems outsourcing
Uçar, Erkan; Bilgen, Semih; Yöndem, Meltem Turhan; Department of Information Systems (2012)
The objective of this research is to construct a model of the critical success factors for the effectiveness of Information Systems (IS) outsourcing. “Lack of in-house expertise” and “cost effectiveness” are the widely accepted major factors of motivation for IS outsourcing. Although various decision models and analytical frameworks have been proposed before, the literature is not abundant on a complete qualitative model. In contrast with the decision models which are executed before an outsourcing engageme...
An agent-based alert distribution system for intelligent healthcare monitoring
Akçay, Buğrahan; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
With the high-level developments in the information technologies, there is a big movement in the e-health area both to give better healthcare services and to reduce cost. Monitoring the patients from their home location is one of the important branches of e-health with the aging societies. In this work, an agentbased alert system is introduced which analyzes the alert message requests and sends the alert messages within the appropriate structure and communication channel to the related healthcare user. A gu...
A metrics-based approach to the testing process and testability of object-oriented software systems
Yurga, Tolga; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Information Systems (2009)
This dissertation investigates the factors that affect testability and testing cost of object- oriented software systems. Developing a software program which eases the testing process by increasing testability is crucial. Also, to assess whether or not the testing effort and cost consumed or planned is adequate or not is another critical matter this dissertation aims to answer by composing a new way to evaluate the links between software design parameters and testing effort via source-based metrics. An auto...
