AUK Professor Ahmad Rabaa'i Discusses Effectiveness of IS Applications in New Book

Professor Ahmad A. Rabaa'i, Chair of Computer Science and Information Systems at the American University of Kuwait (AUK), and Assistant Professor of Information Systems, released a book in October 2015 entitled Evaluating the Success of Large-Scale Information Systems Applications, in which he discusses the effectiveness and success of Information System (IS) applications.

Published by Scholars' Press, the book stems from a central interest in the importance of systematically evaluating operational large-scale integrated IS applications in organizations and addresses often debated concepts in the field of Information Systems. Research and study for this book were conducted in the IS-Impact Research Track at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) - Australia, where the IS-Impact model served as the core theory. Introduced by Gable et. al in 2008, the IS-Impact model attempts to measure and evaluate the effectiveness (or impact) of IS applications and their ability to offer solutions within organizations from a user's perspective.

In addition to publishing his first book, Ahmad A. Rabaa'i has published over 25 peer-reviewed articles in conferences and journals including the Asia Pacific Journal of Information Systems and the International Journal of Business Information Systems.
