Multiple Subjects of College Information Management System Estimate In each of the categories there are very specific mechanisms which must exist in a model of information system architecture. Measuring scales are developed in order to record whether or not the model meets the criteria in each category. For some conditions a natural scale exists and is used as a measurement. In all other areas a binary scale is used. In the case of the binary scale, a zero indicates that the model does not meet that condition, and a one indicates that the condition is met.
Project Team of Information SystemProject team of information system develop, implement and control the system, of which the project manager is the head, and system analysts, programmers, persons participating in the system development and implementation are the members. Therefore, what the project team are mainly concerned about are the technology of the information system and whether the system functions according to the schedule, budget and goals set. The estimate indexes mainly include: 1) Index for evaluating system construction: It mainly evaluates the implementation and management of the information system, such as the satisfaction degree of users, development efficiency of the system, the utilization rate of resources, normalization degree of system construction and whether the overall system is advanced, etc; 2) Index for evaluating system performance: It mainly evaluates the reliability, efficiency, adaptability, maintainability, transportability, expandability, and safety and confidentiality of the system.
College ManagementStaffs College management staffs are usually the initiator and advocator of information systems, who initiate, plan, organize, coordinate and support the implementation of information systems, and whose support is the key to the successful implementation of information systems. College management staffs are concerned about the overall interest and long-term development of the college. They support the implementation of the information system to realize the strategic goals and sharpen the competitive edge of the college, such as improving the college image and attracting more clients. Therefore, College management staffs, when evaluating the system, would take the tangible and intangible interests the information system brings into consideration, which mainly include: 1) Operation interest: Saving cost, shortening time of turnover, enhancing productivity, improving service quality, etc. 2) Management interest: Optimizing resource management, etc. 3) Strategic interest: Supporting innovative expansion of business and e-commerce, etc.; therefore, system progress, whether the system supports cooperation with external parties, and global expansion of business and e-commerce, etc are the indexes for estimate. 4) Fundamental interest of IT: Improving the flexibility of business, saving IT cost, enhancing basic capacity of IT, etc. 5) Organization interest: supporting the reformation of the organization, promoting training and improving skills of staff, and setting up common goals, etc.
External Entities The implementation of college information system will affect the partnership with clients and suppliers, etc. Therefore, external entities like clients and suppliers would also evaluate the implementation of the information system. Besides, the external entities also include the estimate agency and consulting agency, etc.  Things that external entities like clients and suppliers concern about fall into 4 categories: time, quality, performance, service and cost. Therefore, they are mainly concerned about how the information system can bring them value and satisfaction from the four aspects mentioned above. The estimate indexes include: 1) Whether the implementation of the system shortens the response time, 2) Whether the implementation of the system improves product and service quality, 3) Whether the implementation of the system brings larger value, 4) Whether the implementation of the system reduces product or service cost.
