Conceptual Framework Of Community Based Location Specific Services For Improved Service Delivery, Folasade Dahunsi

The African Journal of Information Systems

Community Based Location Service (CBLS) is the provision of information about services based on the geographical location of subscriber’s mobile phone towards the development of the community they are in. With the increase in mobile phones penetration, citizens can participate actively in providing relevant information to assist in the provision of services and infrastructure in the country through their mobile devices. This paper proposes a framework that will improve services and provide better infrastructure to developing countries. It hinges on four major technologies: location-based information, crowdsourcing, mobile communication devices and volunteerism. This framework takes into consideration the importance of ...

From Enrollment To Employment: A Dacum Approach To Information Systems And Information Security And Assurance Curriculum Design, Leila Halawi, Wendi M. Kappers, Aaron Glassman

Wendi Kappers

Issues associated with information security are numerous and diverse. Since the majority of organizational actions rely greatly on information and communication technologies, Information Systems (IS) security is now a main concern for firms, governments, institutes, and society as a whole. As a result, a plethora of graduate programs have been created, covering nearly every aspect of IS security. The authors review the current state of the IS industry presented in the literature, and identify a panel of IS experts in which to explore current job skill needs using a “Developing a Curriculum,” DACUM, process to support curriculum design for two ...

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

Social technologies have changed the way we communicate allowing users to interact, share knowledge, reach out to friends and family, keep up with the news, and even promote and support a business. A study of Israeli women was conducted to determine how social technologies platforms — Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Google+ — are used and the benefits realized. Women worldwide face challenges including economic, educational, health, and political. Israel women, like women in every other country in the world, are challenged with gender inequity. Do women who use social technologies believe that these platforms provide empowerment leading to greater success? This ...

Assimilation Of Tracking Technology In The Supply Chain, Rahul Basole, Maciek Nowak 2017 Georgia Institute of Technology

Assimilation Of Tracking Technology In The Supply Chain, Rahul Basole, Maciek Nowak

Information Systems and Operations Management: Faculty Publications & Other Works

While tracking technology has become increasingly accessible, firms still struggle with deploying these technologies into the supply chain. Using the complementary perspectives of transaction cost and institutional theory, we develop an understanding of how supply network, product, and environmental characteristics jointly impact tracking technology assimilation. We empirically test our model on a global dataset of 535 supply chain executives and decision makers. The results suggest that assimilation is frequently initiated by an external stakeholder in a firm's supply chain and that firms must develop strong collaborative ties with their partners in order to take full advantage of this technology.


Blown To Bits Project, David Schmidt Ph.D. 2017 Fort Hays State University

Blown To Bits Project, David Schmidt Ph.D.

Informatics Open Educational Resources

The book, Blown to Bits, uncovers the many ways that the new digital world has changed and is changing our whole environment. Some changes are incremental but others are more revolutionary. Some of the changes that we welcome are slowly eroding our privacy and are changing the rules of ownership. This book illuminates the complexities of these changes. I have attempted to capture the central points in selected chapters, and in some cases I have added new material or new examples to replace dated material. I picked chapters to summarize that address the following topics (and more). There are many ...

Key Performance Indicators In An Agile Supply Chain, Jacob Langston 2017 Wright State University - Main Campus

Key Performance Indicators In An Agile Supply Chain, Jacob Langston

Master of Information Systems Capstone Executive Summary

Agile supply chains offer the flexibility required to support customers who require a “quick response” to demand requirements. Coupled with lean process improvements and integrated solutions, cost-effective supply chains can be established that provide the infrastructure needed to support the agility needed to meet customer demands; ultimately increasing market share and continued growth. While Emerson’s mission to remain an industry leader in the HVAC&R Industry aligns with these aspects of supply chain management, current system infrastructure does not support such flexibility. Multiple execution tools, processes and one-off solutions make it difficult to standardize reporting methodologies for performance metrics ...
