McDermid, D. (2008). Current challenges facing Information and Communications Technology: A manifesto for change. In Proceedings of the Transforming Information and Learning Conference: Transformers: people, technologies and spaces. Perth, Australia: Edith Cowan University.

Abstract

A distinction is drawn concerning the true nature of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) which previously was seen as technology-focused or techno centric but actually concerns transformation and the management of change in business (socio-techno centric). Current issues and challenges in ICT are examined and future trends and directions highlighted. This leads to a manifesto for change outlining a coherent approach to transforming ICT into a resource which fully contributes to business. Finally given this manifesto, challenges for tertiary education are outlined.
