Fauziah Ahmad and Noor Habibah Arshad

Abstract—Organizations, be it private or public, are making huge spending on information technology (IT). These spending, whether for productivity or strategic reasons, become the fundamentals and tools on how organizations evaluate their IT investment.

Especially when decision to invest is onset, the expectation of values or benefits from the investment become substantial to arrive at such decision to invest. This study reviews and analyzes eight pertinent studies that model IT investment values and benefits and propose a model to describe the value delivery of an IT investment evaluation.

In this paper, the five factors of IT investments value delivery are discussed which are financial, operational, organizational, strategic, and service.

Index Terms—Information technology, investment, values, evaluation.
