THE USE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN AFRICA

The book aims at Assessing Utilization of Information Technology among Secretaries in Africa with particular reference to Selected Government Ministries in Meru Central District of Kenya. Certainly, the development in information technology has caused a new electronic office to emerge. The fact that most of the office personnel can access and manipulate data that were previously manned has led to reduction of employees including secretarial staff. In this book the author establishes that the level of utilization of communication systems was quite high in government offices. Majority of Secretaries stated that information technology made work easier for them and most of them used computers for data processing. However, despite the fact that most of them stated that they used modern communication systems in their offices, it came out clearly that internet and electronic mails usage was still low. This indicates that there is no proper utilization of the communication systems. The book concludes by arguing that information technology has impacted both positively and negatively on performance of Secretaries. As Africa works towards attaining MDGs improvements are needed on this!

The Politics of Technology in Africa The Politics of Technology in Africa Новинка

The Politics of Technology in Africa

As more Africans get online, information and communication technologies (ICTs) are increasingly hailed for their transformative potential. Yet, the fascination for the possibilities of promoting more inclusive forms of development in the information age have obfuscated the reality of the complex negotiations among political and economic actors who are seeking to use technology in their competition for power. Building on over ten years of research in Ethiopia, Iginio Gagliardone investigates the relationship between politics, development, and technological adoption in Africa's second most populous country and its largest recipient of development aid. The emphasis the book places on the 'technopolitics' of ICTs, and on their ability to embody and enact political goals, offers a strong and empirically grounded counter-argument to prevalent approaches to the study of technology and development that can be applied to other cases in Africa and beyond.

Communication in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction Industry

The AEC industry has long been in need of effective modes of information exchange and knowledge sharing, but their practice in the industry is still far from satisfactory. Fundamentally, the industry lacks a culture of information and knowledge sharing. There are three major interlinked obstacles in the AEC industry: the fragmented nature of the AEC industry, the lack of formal and interoperable knowledge representation, the linear communication model in the industry. In order to effectively coordinate information and knowledge flow in the AEC industry, this book presented a framework for an information system – a Construction Information and Knowledge Protocol/Portal (CIKP) which integrates within it a publish/subscribe system, Semantic Web technology, and Social Web concepts. Our aim has been to break down linear communication through social involvement and encourage a culture of sharing, and in the end, the CIKP framework has been developed to specify desired services in communicating information and knowledge, applicable technical approaches and the functions required to satisfy the needs of a variety of service scenarios.

Project Management Information Systems Project Management Information Systems Новинка

Project Management Information Systems

This book presents a series of techniques, practices and processes to help project managers and project staff to manage information in a systematic way that will help improve the project interventions. It is through information management that we can improve decision making process, learn and create new knowledge. Knowledge derives from information, as information derives from data. Information becomes knowledge when people do the work and realize an action that generates experiences. The creation of valuable knowledge depends on the adoption of a holistic approach to information management; an approach that takes into consideration organizational culture and politics, information economics and processes, information standards and policies, information strategies and governance. All this translates to an information ecosystem that puts people at the centre and technology as an enabler. Managing a project information system has to do more with managing human behaviours than managing technology.
