Abstract: The main objective of this study was to find whether IT investments had any positive effects on organizational performance of Telecoms companies. Another objective was also to come out with a model to explain the dynamics of IT investments covering from the factors that necessitates IT investments to the performance of these investments. The focus was from 2000 to 2006. Mobile subscriber base in Ghana grew from 215928 to 4966797, or by approximately 2300.21% from 2001 to 2006 (calculated from data taken from Ghana’s National Communications Authority website www.nca.org.gh). This represents huge IT investments made over the years. As to whether this investment resulted in the performance of these companies or not is what this study tried to unravel. A diagrammatical model was developed as mentioned earlier. At the firm level the results were consistent with the work of Alpar and Kim (1990) who also did not find positive effects of IT investments on performance. Like Strassmann (1985), this study also found no correlation between IT and Return on Investment (ROI) at the firm level. At the industry level however, there were positive effects. This piece of work is purposely meant for all managers, IT professionals, and engineers who take decisions in organizations, government institutions, as well as educational institutions pertaining to Information Technology investments. It will help them make informed decisions, and also to maximize the performance of IT investments once they are made.

Computer Science , 2015, DOI: 10.5121/ijsptm.2015.4403
Abstract: Today business environment is highly dependent on complex technologies, and information is considered an important asset. Organizations are therefore required to protect their information infrastructure and follow an inclusive risk management approach. One way to achieve this is by aligning the information security investment decisions with respect to organizational strategy. A large number of information security investment models have are in the literature. These models are useful for optimal and cost-effective investments in information security. However, it is extremely challenging for a decision maker to select one or combination of several models to decide on investments in information security controls. We propose a framework to simplify the task of selecting information security investment model(s). The proposed framework follows the 'Context, Content, Process' approach, and this approach is useful in evaluation and prioritization of investments in information security controls in alignment with the overall organizational strategy.
