Information systems success model

The information systems success model (alternatively IS success model gold Delone and McLean IS Success Model ) is an information systems (IS) theory qui seeks to Provide a comprehensive understanding of IS success by Identifying, Describing, and explaining the Relationships among six of the MOST Critical dimensions of success along which information systems are commonly evaluated. Initial development of the theory was undertaken by William H. DeLone and Ephraim R. McLean in 1992, [1] and was further refined by the original authors in a response to other scholars working in the area.

Dimensions of IS success

The IS success model identifies and describes the relationships among six critical dimensions of IS success: information quality, system quality, service quality, system use / usage intentions, user satisfaction, and net system benefits.

Information quality

Information quality Refers to the quality of the information que le system is reliable to store, deliver, or Produce, and is one of the commonest dimensions along qui information systems are Evaluated. Information quality impacts on the quality of life and the quality of life.

System quality

As with information quality, the overall quality of a system is also one of the most common dimensions along which information systems are evaluated. System quality indirectly impacts the extent to which the system is able to deliver benefits by means of mediational relationships through the use intentions and user satisfaction constructs.

Service quality

Along with information quality and system quality, information systems are also commonly evaluated according to the quality of service that they are able to deliver. Service quality directly impacts the intentions and user satisfaction with the system, which, in turn, impacts the net benefits produced by the system.

System use / usage intentions

Intentions to use an information system and actual system are well-established constructs in the information systems literature. In the IS success model system use and use intentions are influenced by information, system, and service quality. The use of the term “influence” is used to describe the use of the system. In conjunction with user satisfaction, system use directly affects the net benefits that the system is able to provide.

User satisfaction

User, and by information, system, and service quality. Like actual system use, user satisfaction directly influences the net benefits provided by an information system. Satisfaction refers to the extent to which a user is pleased or contented with the information system, and is posited to be directly affected by system use.

Net system benefits

The net benefit is an important aspect of the overall value of the system to its users or to the underlying organization. In the IS success model, the system is used by the system. In their own right, system benefits are posed to influence both user satisfaction and a user’s intentions to use the system.
