Department of Information Systems and Operations Management

Auckland, New Zealand
Information Systems

Summary

In the department of Information Systems and Operations Management we believe that Information technology is now an integral part of the business world. The “new information systems professional” is a people-person, but can also “talk technology”, solving important organisational problems.

Digital innovation and transformation is where digital technology is used to make new products, services and business models to transform the nature of an organisation or entire industry. Therefore, the “new information systems professional” understands technology, but is also a people-person, solving important organisational problems.

In the 2016 QS World University Rankings for the subject Computer Science and Information Systems, the University of Auckland was ranked amongst the top 100 departments in the world. This means that ISOM is one of the leading departments in the Asia-Pacific region. The full list of rankings is available from the QS World University Rankings website.

The department has strong links with industry partners such as Microsoft, SAP, Oracle and many others. Our information systems and supply chain graduates are sought after by leading international and New Zealand firms.

The Information Systems major offered by the ISOM department is also the first and only program in New Zealand to receive academic recognition and certification from The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIIBA®).

In 2014 a team of students majoring in Information Systems and Computer Science won the $50,000 first prize in the Innovation category at the Microsoft Imagine Cup finals in Seattle. The Microsoft Imagine Cup is the world’s premier student technology competition, and attracts entries from the world’s top universities. With leadership provided by ISOM, many times the University of Auckland has had a team placed in the finals of the Imagine Cup.

Innovations in digital technologies continue to drive productivity growth, but they can also disrupt markets and entire industries in an increasingly global and fast-paced business environment.

Our research looks for ways in which people can effectively understand, use and develop information technology, as well as the impact of IT on organisations and society in general.

Information systems research covers a wide range of topics:

  • Digital innovation
    The creation, distribution and commercialisation of digital innovations, and their impact on organisations and society.
  • Data mining and big data
    How huge amounts of data can now be extracted and analysed using cutting-edge business analysis tools.
  • The relationship between information systems and organisations
    How IT impacts on organisational structure, culture and people.
  • Global outsourcing
    How organisations can successfully outsource some of their IT capabilities
  • Enterprise application integration
    The integration of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and decision support systems.
  • Sustainability modelling and reporting systems
    The analysis and development of enterprise systems that support sustainability.
  • Learning and teaching with technologies
    How students and lecturers can increase their productivity through the design and use of new applications, tools, systems and methodologies.
  • Information technology in small developed countries
    The relative success of the IT industries in New Zealand and other small developed countries.
