International Journal of Information Technologies and Systems Approach (IJITSA) Volume 9, Issue 2

Book Description

The International Journal of Information Technologies and Systems Approach (IJITSA) is a refereed global journal where a systemic interdisciplinary and/or a multi-methodology perspective of information systems, software engineering, and systems engineering are encouraged. The articles accepted in IJITSA address relevant and contemporaneous or recurrent and unsolved classic problems, opportunities, challenges, and solutions found in IT systems. The journal pursues a better understanding and development of the three addressed disciplines from an interdisciplinary and/or multi-methodology perspective focused on the construct IT system.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • Better Use Case Diagrams by Using Work System Snapshots
  • Linking Research and Teaching: An Applied Soft Systems Methodology Case Study
  • IS Design Considerations for an Innovative Service BPO: Insights from a Banking Case Study
  • An Initial Examination into the Associative Nature of Systems Concepts
  • Assessing the Potential Improvement an Open Systems Development Perspective Could Offer to the Software Evolution Paradigm
  • A Case of Academic Social Networking Sites Usage in Malaysia: Drivers, Benefits, and Barriers
