The impact IT systems have on organizations is widely debated, both in academia and industry. This paper describes a quantitative framework for analyzing organizational impact from IT systems. The framework consists of an abstract model that is a metamodel suitable for expressing organizational structure incorporated with an extended influence diagram for analysis. The purpose is to create enterprise architecture (EA) models that can be used for analysis of the enterprise. The framework has been validated through a case study where the framework has been used to analyze the changes in organizational structure after the introduction of an IT system.
