Despite the rapid advance of technology in the last few decades, accurate, on-time and on-budget completion of information systems development projects is still a vision rather than a reality. Despite the rapid advance of technology in the last few decades, accurate, on-time and on-budget completion of information systems development projects is still a vision rather than a reality. An optimal information modeling technique may be defined as an information modeling technique that is most appropriate to be applied in a specific situation indicated by certain contingency factors. Optimal Information Modeling Techniques examines these methods and provides the most recent research in the field, to be applied to the management applications of modern organizations.
