Problems of understanding the evaluation of the effectiveness of the use of information systems in investigative activities
The article explores the concept of the effectiveness of information systems that provide the work of investigating crimes. The question is raised about determining the criteria for its effectiveness. Identified are those of them that can not be used to assess the effective functioning of the IC forensic science, since they are not measured quantitatively, and as a result, can not compare different information systems. For this reason, despite the decent level of security of law enforcement agencies with modern computer equipment, various information systems, the main indicators of the work of the investigative authorities, such as reducing the level of crime, the number of crimes disclosed, have not undergone commensurate substantial changes. To evaluate and compare systems use such criteria as efficiency, reliability, stability, measurability, optimality. The criterion of the effectiveness of information systems is characterized, firstly, by the ability to measure the effectiveness of the system, secondly, by the ability to express a certain number, in the third, the definition of efficiency with high accuracy and without significant costs. And if all information systems involved in investigative activities are analyzed from the point of view of the conditions given, then it can be stated with certainty that there are no criteria for evaluating their effectiveness. Information in any field of activity has specific goals that are aimed at improving one or another process. Consequently, those indicators that, with the help of information selected for improvement, will become the criteria for the effectiveness of information systems that support the work of investigating crimes.
Keywords: efficiency evaluation, general requirements, efficiency criteria of the information system, measurability.
