End users have become increasingly integrated into computing
environments, necessitating continued inquiry into successful
models for end user design and development and the impact that
these models have on performance and productivity.
End-User Computing, Development and Software
Engineering: New Challenges explores the implementation of
organizational and end user computing initiatives and provides
foundational research to further the understanding of this
discipline and its related fields. This book reviews the factors
and barriers to ICT adoption in organizations, opportunities and
benefits of communities of practice, and impact that end user
computing can have on overall firm performance.
