3 SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT METHODOLOGIES System Development Methodogies Introduction One of the on-going debates in Information Technology is the search for more holistic understanding of system methodologies development processes in the design of Information Systems. The catalysts for such a search are readily apparent in the scholarly journals and professional journals which support the discipline, one of the most emotive being the failure, in various publicized materials, of an attempt to establish an efficient functioning Information Systems. The reasons examined for such downfall are varied as the range of systems that fail. Improper uses of tools during project implementation in business organizations, poor training, inadequate or false information from IT consultants are just some of the issues that are frequently analyzed [Dav111]. Often the immediate aftermaths of such failures are dominated by informal inquiries trying to visualize these problems and make sure that they are permanently eradicated. System development methodologies vary in their complexity and rigor. Recent findings have suggested that using any methodology is better than using one. Benefits software developers and IT consultants expect to receive by using by a formal methodology include improved productivity, improved work efficiency, shorter time to market and lower costs in terms of project implementation. This process is achieved through making an effective decision when selecting the right approach to the development of systems. System development has been thought of as being a discipline similar to engineering, hence the creation of the field of Software engineering. This has entailed the use of structured development processes and methodologies, design tools, testing, and statistical verification to ensure the effective running of business processes [Gle14]. However, system development processes are usually rigorous and complex, requiring a high level of training for IT specialists. They also tend to emphasize processes and

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
