Component based frameworks : - Which factors affect companies in their choice of framework? (English)
An information system is something that evolves over time to enhance the company that is using it. The technology for building an information system is also evolving. New methods and new programming languages make system development easier. As new technology breaks ground and the demands of a company’s information system grow, the company will sooner or later get to a point where a change in the base of the system is necessary. Today a component-based framework is a common choice among companies. Our survey aims to find out what factors a company considers when they choose a new framework. Some of the factors we consider are how they affect the choice in the company, and if these same factors will influence the same choice in all companies.
The results are based on a survey that we have done for six major companies. The results show that several factors affect the choice - independent or in combination with other factors. One of the most important factors is whether deeper knowledge about the framework can be acquired within the company or in the open market. It is also important that the supplier of the framework is reliable and well respected on the market. For guidance in these matters most companies turn to market forecasts from major IT research and advisory firms. We can also establish that the answers we got from the separate companies show large similarities concerning which factors they thought affected their choice the most.
