Stakeholders, The Players of an Information System

When we come to the designing of the information system, a term often make us think; Who are Stakeholders? so let us define this with the formal definition and it goes like this.

Any person who has interests in an existing or proposed information system. Stakeholders may include both technical and non-technical workers. They also may be the internal ones or may be the external one.

So I think the idea of ‘Who are stakeholders?’ has come to the mind. In building the information system the system owners, system users, system designers, system builders and all of the above system analysts and the project managers all these are commonly known as the stakeholders.
