Research Title    

Development of a Success Model for Water Management Information Systems

Research Overview    

This research focuses on the development of a novel integrated model to evaluate the success of Water Management Information Systems (WMIS) based on water resource management principles, specifically Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) principles, and Information Systems (IS) success models. The model uses data of WMIS users from various designations within the City of Cape Town’s Department of Water and Sanitation to test and validate the model. The analysis and validation of the model is achieved using a Partial Least Squares (PLS) approach to Structural Equation Modelling (SEM). The findings from the study will be useful for water resource managers in their implementation of WMIS for the various roles and tasks, and also contributing to the IS domain by being a first in the development of a model for water resources management.
