The main reason for existence of information technologies is to collect, record, store, transfer, aggregate and present the vital information for the organization when requested. Current Information Technologies used in the organizations vary from tightly integrated ERP systems to broadly distributed Information Systems. What makes the system used most appropriate or valuable is definitely neither the complexity, nor the integration level. A distributed Information System can be designed to better suit the information requirements of the business than a tightly integrated one. This research is focused on the measures of successful Information Systems considering if they present the right information with proper format when it is required. A Task Information Fit (TIF) model is proposed. The model is verified based on student course registration system scenario. The factors affecting the attitude of users towards using the systems are explored.
