On Thursday 4 August, the Computer and Information Systems Students Association (CISSA) at the University of Melbourne held the opening workshop of their IT Case Challenge, sponsored by ACS Victoria.
Over the next three weeks, more than 60 students across 13 teams will be proposing creative and innovative solutions to the challenge that SMS Management & Technology presented at the opening workshop. The challenge addresses improved knowledge management and enhanced communication across the entire organisation. There will be a 'checkpoint session' where teams will meet with SMS Management & Technology consultants to revise their ideas and recieve feedback, as well filtering to select the eight strongest and relevant proposals to continue towards the finals.
The final session will take place on Wednesday 24 August and teams will pitch their ideas and solutions to a judging panel conformed by a representative of ACS, SMS Management & Technology consulting firm, and the Computing and Information Systems faculty at the University of Melbourne. The winning teams will be those that consider disruptive and emerging technologies in response, demonstrate innovative thinking and their degree of research application, and show the depth of insight into the problem.
