A statistical examination of the relationships between business success and information technology factors. Subjects: About 100 companies for which data from the years 1990, 1991, 1992 were found regarding their information systems and their success. Method and tool - research: Business success was measured by the rates of increase in profit over five years, and by the rate of production per employee. The correlations between these indices and various information system variables were examined. From the findings: No correlations were found between the success indices and indices such as the relative rate of investment in information systems, the cost of manpower of the information systems, the cost of training, the distribution of terminals and the power of the computer. Only in a small number of industrial sectors have some such correlations been found.
