The aim of this article is to introduce the concept of lifecycle information systems (LCISs), in which the main purpose is to permit the development of ISs capable of supporting the management of information of an entity during its whole lifecycle. In order to validate this concept, we outline the MyHistory which consists in an experimental IS structured in four different contexts, supporting the information management of persons during their lifecycle. As the main contribution, this article introduces a new approach for the development of ISs which can improve the current way of information management of entities.
