Abstract:

(SDLC) using appropriate methodology. The SDLC consists of phases varying from author to author. However, an in-formation systems project can only be successful with intense interaction amongst project manager, systems analyst, system designers and the end users. Viewed from the project manager’s perspective, the SDLC lacks the essence of project management activities. Similarly, end users involvement is not clearly specified. The main aim of this paper is to propose a framework for information systems management and development process which accommodates the views of the different participants. Furthermore, the paper sharpens the concept of conventional SDLC, on the basis of the pro-posed framework. In addition, tools and methods that are appropriate for the implementation of the framework are herein discussed.
