Beyond 2000 - the information challenges
an opportunity for information professionals to be informed on the
latest key developments in:

information on the web
information for collaboration
information frameworks

Thursday 26th November 1998

a joint conference run by Kingston University and TFPL Ltd.

This intensive one-day conference will provide an update on key
developments pertinent to a broad range of information professionals.
These latest developments in information management will be examined in
terms of the practical implications and new opportunities that they
offer to deploy information for business benefit.  This event has been
organised by the School of Information Systems at Kingston University
and TFPL, bringing together a cross-section of business and academic
speakers who have been involved in various consultancy and research
projects in information management. 

Who should attend:

Information specialists and consultants
Knowledge workers 
Business analysts and managers
IS/IT managers and strategists 

and all those who need an understanding of the current and future
developments and key issues in information management

Programme:

9.30-9.45
coffee and registration

9.45-9.50
Introduction by Chair - Brian Saxby, Head, School of Information
Systems, Kingston University

Information on the web
9.50-10.30
Designing a successful web business
Professor Jonathan Briggs, Kingston University/Points Digital

The business potential of the Web has been the focus of both business
interest and academic research.  It is now clear that successful Web
business is more than just designing interesting web pages.  Design
considerations need to include the integration with existing information
systems. The speaker considers the issues in terms of both current web
technologies and in terms of developments such as WebTV.


10.30-11.10
The promise of XML
Peter Kibby, TFPL Ltd.
W3C adopted the XML (eXtensible Markup Language) standard earlier this
year
and most major vendors are developing XML products. XML brings a much
improved
descriptive foundation to online documents and some applications (for
e.g. search engines and agents) will benefit from the structured
document
definitions it provides. Does this promise to be the end of the borders
in data management?

11.10-11.30
coffee

11.30-12.10
Developing an industrial-strength Internet
Martin White, TFPL Ltd.

This presentation will review the issues around creating a stable and
extensible Internet which will not only provide enhanced levels of
access to the www to business and academic users, but also stimulate
access by users in small businesses and those working at home.  Among
the topics that will be covered will be the impact of internet telephony
on backbone networks, the development of Internet 2 in the USA, mobile
and satellite access to the Internet, pricing strategies and the future
for ISPs.

Information for collaboration

12.10-12.45
Knowledge management: hype or reality?
Nigel Oxbrow, TFPL Ltd.

What are the key principles of knowledge management?  Where is it being
implemented - and how?  What are the potential benefits?  What are the
main challenges?  What are the skills required to successfully implement
and support a knowledge environment?


12.45-2.00
lunch

2.00-2.35
Sharing information in cross team collaboration
Bob Roberts, Senior Lecturer, Kingston University

Intranets have provided a low cost medium for information sharing.
Increasingly the emphasis is on collaboration between multi-disciplinary
teams and between organisation.  Recent research is used to  consider
the business issues, the concerns of end users and the continuing
challenges of using differing technologies, platforms and applications
for collaboration.

Information frameworks

2.35-3.10
Unified modelling language
Dr Mike Goodland, Senior Lecturer, Kingston University
UML is now an accepted standard for modelling object oriented systems
and it seems likely that UML notation and terminology will come to
dominate the world of analysis and design.  UML is the basis for many
support tools and the speaker will address recent developments and
introduce the core models used.

3.10-3.30
tea

3.30-4.10
The human element in projects: soft risk analysis
Dr Roger Stewart, Reader in Systems Management, Kingston University
Analysis of projects indicate that better risk management of human
elements will significantly enhance the chances of success.
Quantitative risk identification and evaluation techniques are well
established.  A qualitative framework is proposed, developed from
systems theory and behavioural/organisational psychology, to identify
potential people problems and associated risks, evaluate the project
impact and to develop appropriate action plans.

4.10-4.45
Words don't add up
John Lindsay, Reader in Information Systems, Kingston University

A discussion on the difference between computation and its role in
information systems design and text -words joined up into sentences.
John contrasts the different approaches and suggests you cannot compute
with words in the same ways you can with logic.  Document management is
not the same thing as information management.

4.45-5.00
Summary and close
Brian Saxby, Head, School of Information Systems, Kingston University
