Abstract

Classifies the critical knowledge/skill set according to content or domain of knowledge by means of a survey. This is conducted in accordance with what IS practitioners and educators can easily relate. The survey uses this approach and includes four broad categories of critical Information Systems (IS) knowledge/skills: IS technology knowledge/skills, organizational and societal knowledge/skills, interpersonal knowledge/skills, and personal trait knowledge/skills.

Abstract

The year 2000 (Y2K) remedy process is an ongoing business to be continued even after the rollover of the century. This is especially true for the organizations that fail to cope with the crisis properly. In this paper, major problems associated with the crisis are identified and key remedy issues such as effective remedy methods, a systematic implementation model, compliance testing, and resource management issues are identified and presented. Post‐millennium remedy guidelines are also suggested, as the Y2K crisis will be an ongoing business for many organizations for an extended period of time after the rollover of the millennium.

Abstract

Argues that, although the information superhighway will encounter obstacles on the road to becoming fully implemented, there is enough support for this communication delivery system to make it a part of everyday life in the near future. The information superhighway would link homes, schools, businesses, libraries, governmental agencies and other participants in a vast information network. Such a system could allow users all over the world to access information on just about any topic.

Abstract

The information superhighway (ISH) has created a number of new opportunities and services. In order to allow the development of the new network system, some technological requirements and solutions will be necessary. Promotes the awareness and understanding of integrating new technologies for corporate and industrial ISH processes. Includes the implementation on a wide scale of fibre‐optic wires and asynchronous transfer mode technologies and the compatibility problems between different platforms and communication devices. Agreements on standards and common rules throughout different manufacturers and different nations will be essential in order to achieve the foreseen integration and compatibility of the system.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present the results of a comprehensive study on the specialisations or career tracks supported by the Information Systems (IS) curriculum in the UK.

Design/methodology/approach

The study utilises the recently published IS curriculum guidelines (IS 2010) to develop a method for ranking the career tracks of undergraduate IS courses in the UK.

Findings

The research presents a prioritised list of graduate IS careers by taking into account the entire IS course provision in the UK. At the same time, it offers data about the size of the IS curriculum in terms of universities in the UK and the number/type courses they offer.

Research limitations/implications

The study relies on a previously undeveloped method for measuring career specialisations for UK IS graduates. Additional work is needed to validate the results through comparisons with alternative methods of measuring the careers supported by IS degree courses.

Practical implications

By having concrete data about the state of the IS curriculum in relation to its employability opportunities, the IS academy can make more informed decisions about future curriculum development. Further comparative research can be undertaken to support arguments about the relevance of the IS curriculum to industry needs.

Originality/value

There has been no similar UK study on this scale which examines the state of the IS curriculum in relation to the career opportunities it offers. The development of the method for this study also offers insights into the structure and recommendations presented by IS 2010.
