Furthermore, critical analysis of the article shall be undertaken based on the guidelines as prescribed by (Henever et al, 2004) to determine the strength and weakness of the article. Seven guidelines have been proposed by (Hevner et al, 2004) to assist researchers in evaluation and understanding effective design research in information systems.
