Delivered information systems are an integral part of many organisations’ information technology infrastructure. Their dynamic nature creates new challenges, not the least of which is the need to measure the quality/effectiveness of these systems. Given the size of investment in these systems, it would be invaluable for business to formulate a fresh, simple, easy to administer, multi-dimensional instrument capable of measuring the quality of delivered information systems or applications. Such an instrument would provide a practical and efficient means to pinpoint areas that key stakeholders, ranging from end-users to managers, perceive as requiring attention. In this paper, we report on the development of one such instrument. This instrument addresses key areas of performance and uses multiple statements to enhance stakeholders’ understanding of these areas.
