The Digital Architecture Of The 21st Century

The Digital Architecture Of The 21st Century Enterprise

The Centre of Digital Enterprise (CODE) at The University of Auckland Business School next week hosts a public seminar on the new foundations of business success.

Professor Brent Gallupe, an internationally known Canadian scholar who holds a visiting professorship at the University, will present the seminar.

His seminar will examine three current information technology (IT) related phenomena: knowledge management, relationship systems and enterprise systems.

These three phenomena, argues Professor Gallupe, will form the "Digital Architecture" for the typical 21st Century enterprise - but only if they can be integrated to enable the enterprise to use its knowledge and systems to adapt to looming economic, technological and social changes.

Professor Gallupe is Professor of Information Strategy, Director of the Queen's Centre for Knowledge-based Enterprises, and Co-Chair of the E-Commerce Research Program, at the School of Business, Queen's University at Kingston, Canada.

He has received numerous research grants and awards, has served on several editorial boards, including MIS Quarterly, is widely published and has held executive positions with several IS (information systems) practitioner organisations. He advises private and public sector organisations around the world on the development and use of information technologies.

Professor Gallupe arrives in New Zealand next week and will be available for media interviews.

Thursday May 8, 2003 5.00pm - 7.00pm

Level 3, Kenneth Myers Centre, 74 Shortland Street

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940. More>>

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>


Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
