Relatively few studies in MIS research have examined systems to support value-based decision-making behavior. The increasing complexity of the decision environment necessitates more reliance on personal values by decision-makers, thus making it an important component to study when considering the design of systems to aid decision-making.

This research-in-progress paper explores the role participation in Open Source Software (OSS) projects has on the time between releases to begin to empirically test if " release early, release often " (Raymond, 1999) holds true in a practical sense. A model examining the effect that the number of project forum posts, as a proxy for participation, has on the(More)
Web services technology is a burgeoning technology that has received much attention in the software industry in recent years under the broader umbrella of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The popularity of the service-oriented paradigm is echoed by Microsoft's Bill Gates, where in a memo to Microsoft's top managers and engineers, he states "The broad(More)
As more and more wirelessly connected networks come online, security becomes a prominent concern. WiFi insecurity can result in detrimental effects to both individuals and organizations. To establish a greater awareness of the problems associated with wireless security and the extent to which the so-called digital divide effects such problems, we examine(More)
The Theory of Universals in Values (TUV), a reliable and validated conceptualization of personal values used in psychology, is used to examine the effect of system feedback delivered by a Decision Support System (DSS) on personal values. The results indicate that value-based decision-making behavior can be influenced by DSS feedback to address value(More)
Information Systems (IS) have come to play a larger role in how organizations function, including consideration in strategic planning. Responding to competitive change or enacting a new strategy often requires modifying or enhancing an organization's IS. In this paper, the authors develop a process model of evolutionary change to address the role that IS(More)
The effect of the personal values-such as trust or a desire for privacy-of users and developers of open source software (OSS) on the development and use of the software developed by OSS projects is a topic of growing interest in the Information Systems (IS) field. This topic has been investigated in proprietary IS development, but a limiting factor in many(More)
