Article
Full-text available
The development and utilisation of new information and communication technologies presents opportunities and risks, which bring ethical issues to the forefront. Any attempt to minimise the potential negative consequences to individuals, organisations and society resulting from the use of these technologies is challenging. In order to address these...
Article
With increasing air travel, contagion can spread anywhere in the world within 24 hours. As a result, the potential risk of introduction and spread of infectious disease is on the rise. Recently, we the global spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) showed the potential of a contagion to emerge, spread and effect the health, social and economic...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
There is pressure on Business Schools to offer value to multiple stakeholders, including students, employers and society. To this end, Business Schools need to undertake and combine three key activities: 1) research, 2) teaching theory, and 3) experiential learning (Hubbard 2019). Creating links between academia and industry is one method to facili...

Conference Paper
Evaluating an IT artifact is essential in design science, as it serves to validate that a solution has achieved the purpose for which it was designed. This paper presents the evaluation of an emergency management (EM) decision support system (DSS). The DSS addresses the informational needs of strategic-level decision makers in the event of large-sc...
Article
Full-text available
Mankind has faced a huge increase in severe natural and man-made disasters worldwide in the last few years. Emergency responders on a strategic, tactical, and operational level can be assisted by decision support systems (DSS) to enhance disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Policy makers are in need of an advanced, resilient and integrate...
Conference Paper
Emergency decision makers face a challenge taking rapid and high-risk decisions during an emergency situation, especially when the emergency is cross-border and requires multi-agency cooperation. The emergency decision makers use emergency management (EM) system and sometimes decision support systems (DSS) when responding to a crisis. To date the e...
Chapter
For successful emergency management (EM) it is crucial that all stakeholders, especially health care emergency responders, use the same terminology. Throughout the emergency management lifecycle it is necessary for individual agencies to work together, sharing information and resources. Emergency management is already a complex process, but a multi...
Article
Full-text available
Developing decision support systems for emergency situations is a complex and challenging task. These difficulties are compounded further in the case of cross-border emergencies, which often require the coordination and collaboration of independent agencies. These agencies have different structures and resources in place, and follow their own inter...
Article
Many governmental agencies are currently engaged in activities to improve access to information which are encouraging recent Big Data (BD) trends. However, determining and demonstrating the benefit to emergency management information systems (EMIS) users has yet been realised. EMIS are critical to navigating a complex network of disparate IS used f...
Article
Full-text available
Errors in decision-making worldwide highlight the need for training in decision-making. The unpredictability and complexity of emergencies makes training in every possible emergency impossible. Rather than training in specific examples of major emergency events, training in a decision-making skill set will provide a method of response that will be...
Poster
Full-text available
Decision making is a balancing act that requires the identification and evaluation of appropriate options with full consideration of potential risks. However, when the risks are high, like with complex emergency situations and large-scale disasters, lives are in danger and the potential for mistakes increases. Good quality information is critical d...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The aim of the S-HELP (Securing-Health Emergency Learning Planning) project is to develop a decision support tool-set and training system for multi-agency decision making during large-scale emergencies. Emergency management is a complex undertaking, associated with a number of long term consequences with often devastating effects on an affected pop...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Disasters expose the strengths and weakness of multi-jurisdictional and multi-disciplinary networks of public sector, private industry and non-governmental agencies that operate in emergency management (EM). The design of information systems (IS) for multi-agency use has to consider a broad spectrum of functionality, environmental constraints, and...
Conference Paper
Cloud computing applications and services go hand in hand, yet there is no clear mechanism for ensuring that the cloud applications are designed from a customer’s perspective. Likewise services can require adaptation for multiple customers of stakeholders, which require differing user experience outcomes. This paper describes the initial design and...
Article
While the value of technology has been one of the key areas of research within the Information Systems/Information Technology (IS/IT) domain, the area is characterised by disagreement and a lack of consensus regarding what constitutes appropriate measures for technological value. Notwithstanding the fact that this represents a key obstacle to daily...
Conference Paper
Although the benefits of knowledge management systems (KMS) have been clearly articulated, there remains a gap between KM theory and practice. One explanation for this gap can be attributed to the dichotomy between the people versus technology approaches to research that characterize the academic literature on KM and KMS. This paper describes an ad...
Article
There is a growing interest in the application of information technologies (IT) for Knowledge Management (KM) in the public sector; there is, however, a dearth of research on the design and development of effective, integrated Knowledge Management Systems (KMS). Consequently, public sector organisations and private sector enterprises are offered li...
