UKOLN Institutional Web Management Workshop 2004:
From Swipe Card Machine to the Computer Screen

Workshop Session B4: "From Swipe Card Machine to the Computer Screen"

This page provides details for the workshop session on "From Swipe Card Machine to the Computer Screen".

From Swipe Card Machine to the Computer Screen
Heidi Fraser-Krauss and Ester Ruskuc, University of St Andrews
The workshop will be a hands-on/discussion session with the aim of making participants aware of e-business implementation issues. The discussions will be based on case studies and examples to illustrate the main changes required in business processes and the importance of tackling issues such as integration with legacy systems, the need for robust processes and procedures, fall-back options and a fit-for-all solution.
Learning Outcomes:
By the end of the session participants will be able to:
  • Assess what is involved in implementing a modern on-line payment system
  • Have an overview of external and internal user requirements
  • Be aware of the issues of conflict between the requirements
  • Examine the drivers and constraints of implementation
Room Requirements:
The session will require one networked laptop for the presenters, a data projector, two flipcharts, pens, some post-it notes of different colours. It would be good if we could have an additional four laptops (depending on the number of participants), preferably networked.
This session took place from 16:00-17:30 on Wednesday 28th July 2004.
