AbstraktModern information systems tend to be large-scale and complex, and it has been observed that traditional
information system development approaches have problems handling very large systems. Efforts have been
concentrated on addressing these problems from the solution domain, but less on the complexity of the
problem itself. This paper attempts to uncover the reasons for these problems by looking closer at system
complexity, the causes of complexity and the approaches that have been used to handle complexity. Based on
the analysis and a literature review, we suggest that some major problems of very large complex system
development can be solved by treating the development process as an integration task from a multiperspective
