CAUSES OF FAILURE IN IS

5 Feb

We all know that in the majority of cases failure in information systems can be traced back to human error, eg. design failure, operational errors, management failures…What do you think would be the best way to reduce human error and failure in information systems?

    I think you forgot to categorize your blog?

    I would say a clear overview of goals to be achieved would be the first step towards reducing system failures. Regarding human errors – building a good useful Information System. What do you think about it?

    I think the same, that not establishing their goals would lead to many of the failures and by having their goals clear would help[ to minimise the errors in information systems! Also miscommunication would be a factor that would lead to many errors so by improving on communication within an organisation would also help to reduce the errors in an information system.

    …Communication is so often an issue when it comes to the mechanics of any entity; I guess its the same for IS!? Proper and regular communication should ensure that failures are kept to a minimum, but as you said…it does come down to human error…
