Journal of Information Technology Theory and Application (JITTA)


In this paper, we present a review of analytical and empirical research studies that analyze the factors impacting the organizational IT investment. We briefly review research studies conducted in the problem areas of justification of IT investments and contribution of IT to organizational performance. Then we develop a framework that enables us to classify the relevant research and understand the different approaches taken on the subject. Finally, we identify possible future research directions that will be of interest to researchers working in the IS field focusing on IT investment related issues.
