  • 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.
