Towards a wider application of the systems approach in information systems and software engineering

Petkov, Doncho, Edgar-Nevill, Denis, Madachy, Raymond and O'Connor, Rory orcid logoORCID: 0000-0001-9253-0313 (2012) Towards a wider application of the systems approach in information systems and software engineering. In: Computer Engineering: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools and Applications. IGI Global, pp. 1627-1645. ISBN 9781613504567

The chapter provides possible directions for the wider application of the systems approach to information systems development. Potential improvement of software development practices is linked by some leading experts to the application of more systemic ideas. However, the current state of the practice in software engineering and information systems development shows the urgent need for improvement through greater application of systems thinking.
