Integrating the IS Success Model for Value-Oriented KMS Decision Support

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing book series (LNBIP, volume 183)


Evaluating the success of an Information System (IS) is not a trivial problem and usually demands the utilization of several dimensions to cover all facets influencing the success of. Yet, the success provides indications on whether to alignment of the introduced IS to the organizations goals worked out. As scientific literature knows several multi-dimensional approaches for the determination of IS Success, which evolved over the years, a systematic literature analysis can provide a general overview providing the state of the art. Within this paper we renew a systematic literature analysis done by Urbach et al. [1] looking for the recent developments in the field of IS Success. The found approach is supposed to provide us with an procedure to be integrated for a higher value and benefit orientation in the choice and implementation process of knowledge management systems for small and medium enterprises, being able to address their need for value orientation more accurate.
