Systems Theory and Model of Diversification in Building of Information Systems

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9520)


First the paper characterizes the current situation in the field of building of information systems (IS). It discusses a model based on systems theory which describes some possibilities in diversification of risk in developing of IS. To minimize risk in the process of building information systems it is recommended to use components produced by worldly recognized manufacturers of the highest quality. The main subject of investigation by the present model is to quantify risk and to find the minimum. Finally, the paper mentions the direction for further research of the model described by use of correlations and covariances.
