The Management and Application of Information and Communications Technology in human enterprise, both business and social, has become the corner stone of modern society.   The Enterprise ICT group spans a broad range of interests and research areas, but may be considered as having four key domain themes from which a number of other sub-domains arise.

An underlying philosophical concept is that Enterprise ICT is a collective study area to investigate both the methods and issues for enterprises utilising contemporary ICT technologies. The primary key themes are:

  • Models, Structures, and Processes
  • Management of Enterprise ICT
  • Education, Training, and Technology
  • Issues in ICT

The enterprise ICT group focuses on the adoption, innovative applications and management of ICT with particular emphasis in the areas of e-government, e-business and e-learning.  The group also focuses on research aimed at developing effective strategies, policies and models for technology adoption and service provision in developing and developed economies. Research topics in this area include:  technology adoption and management, technology acceptance models, innovative services using mobile devices and collaborative work.
