- Study an organisation and its processes to determine how IT can be used to enhance those processes;
- Contribute towards judgments on the implementation of adopted IT;
- Analyse organisational use of IT with the aim of improving end-user satisfaction;
- Secure an organisation’s information resources effectively to reduce risk; and
- Engage in significant measures of research-oriented training.
