Issues in Software Development Practices A South African Software Practitioners’ Viewpoint
Nehemiah Mavetera,Jan Kroeze
Communications of the IBIMA , 2009,
Abstract: Software development is a process tasked with the development of artefacts that are used to implement organizational information systems. Depending on the social, economical and environmental setting, different software practices are used. These, however, have an effect on the resultant software product. In this paper, the authors investigate some of the software development practices that are used in South Africa. Through the use of interview techniques, the study highlighted a plethora of methods, techniques and tools that are used during the software development process. This paper advocates for a paradigm shift in the way information systems are developed. It motivates for developers to consider the social context of organizational information systems when developing software products. In a social context, capturing the organizational culture, context and human aspect contributes to the system’s responsiveness and its adaptiveness to the ever changing organizational environment.
Guiding Principles for Developing Adaptive Software Products
Nehemiah Mavetera,Jan Kroeze
Communications of the IBIMA , 2010,
Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of problems that are faced by software development practitioners. While communication, team management, coding and software documentation are some of the persistent problems, the first and major troubles for software practitioners is to select appropriate software development approach. This approach should allow developers to develop adaptive software products. The role of organizational culture, context, practice and concepts in developing adaptive software products is also discussed. This qualitative research study interviewed seven software development practitioners in South Africa, focusing on software developmental methods that allow the capturing of softer, human elements inherent in organizations and the accompanying problems that inhibit their inclusion in the resultant software products. The research used Grounded Theory Method, to construct a framework of requirements that must be considered when choosing a software development approach that allows the development of adaptive software products. This framework highlights the importance of employing a software development approach that is grounded in the relativistic paradigm, adopting a behavioral systems approach and adopting methods whose communication techniques and tools can capture the humanist elements that are inherent in organizational systems.
The Role of ICT within Small and Medium Enterprises in Gauteng
Lloyd Modimogale,Jan H. Kroeze
Communications of the IBIMA , 2011,
Abstract: This article discusses the role of information and communication technology (ICT) within the small and medium enterprise (SME) sector in Gauteng, a province in South Africa. ICT plays a very important role in the current knowledge economy. It is vital for SMEs to participate in this economy in order to compete and thrive in the future. The problem is that SMEs are mainly using traditional tools to stay competitive. They need to take advantage of the power of ICT in order to take on the competition, whether small, big or global. Both the traditional and the ICT tools are very important for the competitiveness of the business. The article follows a qualitative research approach and uses semi-structured questionnaires with open-ended questions as data gathering method. There are a number of reasons why an SME might not implement ICT tools, such as limited funds, lack of knowledge, lack of skilled staff and lack of tools. The article highlights the limitation that SMEs have in using ICT and make recommendations on how to overcome them.

Meeting the buddha on the road – An essay on christian scholarship
I.J. Kroeze
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 2001, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v66i4.404
Abstract: This essay looks at the christian theory of science from a very specific context. The essay is divided into two parts. In the first part two different (christian) theories of science, those of Dooyeweerd and Stoker, will be discussed. In the second part, these theories will be analysed against the background of recent developments in the theories of science and knowledge in the field of law and legal theory. The conclusion from the first part is that christian scholarship (and, conversely, a christian university) has nothing to do with the morality of either students or lecturers. It should also be clear that one cannot speak of “the” christian paradigm of science, but that there are various theories and paradigms. In the second part various problems with these two theories are discussed. These include the objectivist stance of both Dooyeweerd and Stoker, Dooyeweerd’s archimedean point of departure and Stoker’s use of socalled scriptural truths. These problems are highlighted by recent developments in legal theory of which christian scholarship must take cognisance.
