Benefits Management (BM) deals with the systematic planning, realization and controlling of the intended benefits of IS/IT projects, beyond the traditional success measures of staying within project time frame and budget limits. The article describes the results of a BM literature review that seeks to describe the state-of-science as well as to identify(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) production by inducible NO synthase (iNOS) during inflammation is an essential element of antimicrobial immunity but can also contribute to host-induced tissue damage. Under conditions of bacterial sepsis, large amounts of NO are produced, causing hypotension, a critical pathological feature of septic shock. In sepsis caused by(More)
The realization of benefits from IS/IT investments has consistently been reported as one of the major challenges of organizations. This paper reports on the findings from an exploratory field study on how benefits management success ultimately contributes to better IS/IT exploitation. A total of 34 semi-structured interviews were held within 29(More)
Group B streptococcus (GBS) is the leading cause of sepsis in neonates. Nitric oxide (NO) release plays a role in the hypotension that characterizes septic shock. To examine the role of the GBS beta-hemolysin in NO production, the murine macrophage line RAW 264. 7 was exposed to a wild-type (WT) GBS isolate and to hyperhemolytic (HH) and nonhemolytic (NH)(More)
Despite organizations' substantial investments in information systems and information technology (IS/IT), the successful realization of appropriate benefits is still often considered a major organizational challenge. Benefits management (BM) aims at resolving this issue and has become increasingly popular in recent years. Although several papers have been(More)
Although organisations continue to make substantial investments in information systems and information technology (IS/IT), the successful realisation of value (i.e. benefits) from such investments has consistently been reported as a major organisational challenge. From a project perspective, this paper examines whether benefits management (BM) practices can(More)
