Recently, research on measuring the success of information systems in organizations has proliferated and has nearly become a standalone stream within the information systems research field. This research stream is considered one of the top ten issues of information systems management. However, more research is needed to identify factors that contribute to information systems effectiveness. To date, a number of information systems success models have been introduced, such as the McLean and DeLone IS Success model and Seddon’s Model. However, the scope and approach of these IS success studies has created little consensus on the assessment of IS success. New approaches may better identify, explain, and improve the various measurements of these models.
