A large number of studies have been conducted during the last decade and a half attempting to identify those factors that contribute to information systems success. However, the dependent variable in these studies-I/S success-has been an elusive one to define. Different researchers have addressed different aspects of success, making comparisons difficult and the prospect of building a cumulative tradition for I/S research similarly elusive. To organize this diverse research, as well as to… 
Information Systems Success: The Quest for the Independent Variables
TLDR
This research identifies 43 specific variables posited to influence the different dimensions of IS success, and organizes these success factors into five categories based on the Leavitt Diamond of Organizational Change: task characteristics, user characteristics, social characteristics, project characteristics, and organizational characteristics.
Measuring information systems success: models, dimensions, measures, and interrelationships
TLDR
This work builds on the prior research related to IS success by summarizing the measures applied to the evaluation of IS success and by examining the relationships that comprise the D&M IS success model in both individual and organizational contexts.
Information Systems Success : Dimensions and Determinants by
Despite considerable empirical research, results on the dimensions and determinants of information systems success are often inconsistent. A comprehensive understanding of information systems success
The 3-D Model of Information Systems Success: The Search for the Dependent Variable Continues
TLDR
This paper evaluates the DeLone and McLean model on a number of dimensions, and a new model is proposed which fundamentally extends DeLoneand McLean's work and its contribution to further research assessed.
Information System Success: Individual and Organizational Determinants
TLDR
This model explains interrelationships among four constructs representing the success of a specific IS (user satisfaction, system use, perceived usefulness, and system quality), and the relationships of these IS success constructs with four user-related constructs.
Information Systems Success and Failure—Two Sides of One Coin, or Different in Nature? An Exploratory Study
Although the discipline of information systems (IS) development is well established, IS failure and abandonment remains widespread. As a result, a considerable amount of IS research literature has
A Methodological Examination of Empirical Research on Information Systems Success: 2003 to 2007
TLDR
The results show that the dominant empirical research is that which analyzes the individual impact of a certain type of information system that the users evaluate by means of surveys and structural equation modeling.
Success model for measuring information system implementation: Literature review
TLDR
The purpose of this review literature is especially researchers can provide an overview of related to the method of previous researchers, which can be used as a framework for solving problems.
Information Systems Success - A Quantitative Literature Review and Comparison
TLDR
The results show that in most cases a type of IT or IT application is investigated by applying the DeLone and McLean IS success model, whereas the most promi- nent data analysis method is structural equation modeling.
Attribution Theory: A Theoretical Framework for Understanding Information Systems Success
Information systems research often employs user satisfaction with, use of, and perceived organizational benefits of, newly-developed systems as measures of information system success. Further, this

Dependent Variables for the Study of Firm and Industry-Level Impacts of Information Technology
TLDR
The issue of identifying the appropriate dependent variables for research on the impacts of information technology at the firm and industry levels is addressed, and the role of different organizational perspectives is examined, and some implications for the design of empirical studies are discussed.
An Assessment of the Contingency Theory of Management Information Systems
TLDR
It is concluded that research in MIS has been hampered by the use of a naive meta-theory, conflicting empirical results with low explained variance, ill-defined concepts of performance and fit, and a narrow perspective of researchers.
THE STRUCTURE OF EXECUTIVE INFORMATION SYSTEMS: AN EXPLORATORY ANALYSIS
This paper reports on a study which attempted to identify the structure of executive information systems and evaluate their relationship to decision making. The study centered on answering the

The impact of DSS on organizational communication
TLDR
It was found that users in three different categories (managers, financial or planning analysts (FPAs), and “others”, felt that DSS usage encouraged communication, and significant positive relationships were found between increased communication and overall satisfaction with the DSS for all three groups.
A Field Study of Organizational Factors Influencing DSS Success
TLDR
A field study involving 124 organizations, and 378 DSS users, was conducted to ascertain the influence of the user's task environment on DSS success and reaffirmed that the level of top management support, user training, and length of DSS use are important correlates of D SS success.
