Although many conceptual frameworks for development and maintenance of information systems in organizations have been proposed, we experience a lack of integrated support of the evolutionary nature, the interconnectedness, and the social processes for developing such systems.

No methodology is found to be sufficient in all respects, although newer approaches take more aspects into account. Keywords Methodology, classification S. Brinkkemper et al.
