Abstract

Information systems/information technology (IS/IT) investment evaluation has emerged as an important issue for managers in organizations around the world. The results show relatively high usage of IS/IT investment evaluation methodologies, and yet, these methodology were generally not used widely and effectively within the responding organizations. Most of these organizations were not yet fully mature in terms of their IT. The result has indicated that more mature organizations were able to utilize both investment evaluation (IEM) and benefits realization (BRM) methodologies more widely and effectively.
