System Quality Analysis with Extended Influence Diagrams
2007 (English)In: CSMR 2007 Workshop and Special Session papers, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
Making major changes in enterprise information systems, such as large IT-investments, often have a significant impact on business operations. Moreover, when deliberating which IT-changes to make, the consequences of choosing a certain scenario may be difficult to grasp. One way to ascertain the quality of IT-investment decisions is through the use of methods from decision theory. This paper proposes the use of one such method to facilitate IT-investment decision making, viz. extended influence diagrams. An extended influence diagram is a tool able to completely desccribe and analyse a decision situation. The applicability of extended influence diagrams is demonstrated at the end of the paper by using an extended influence diagram in combination with the ISO/IEC 9126 software quality metrics as means to assist a decision maker in a decision regarding an IT-investment.
